We are two professional white women, long-time partners, who set out with great joy and a little apprehension to raise two black children adopted at birth. As with most parents, having kids has been the the most rewarding journey of our lives. It has also been utterly heartbreaking.

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot in things racial, we have always been... in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards. Though race-related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discourse, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about things racial."
--Attorney General Eric Holder, Feb., 2009
"If your hope was to change people then you can count
me among your indicators of success."
