Learn About An Indian-American Couple Who Adopted White Children
This article, over at Huffington Post, provides a different look at race in America.
A lovely, gentle piece exploring a mother's love for her children, both from birth and from adoption. I particularly enjoy the voice she adopted.
Some great lines in there. My favorite: "The hyphen will define us more than the terms themselves...", which tells a big part of the story about race in the United States right now.
I doubt Ms. Iyer thought much about the social experiment she would be opening up. I expect, simply, that she and her husband followed their hearts and opened their homes.
She opened my mind with her writing. I hope the same for you.
