Things NOT to Say to Adoptive Families

Family-Nuclear-BlackThis morning on My Brown Baby:

Did you ever think that we might deserve some privacy about our backstories? Not secrecy, just some good old-fashioned privacy that allows us to share the details of our story where and when we want, and with whom. We may not even know if we had a name before we were adopted. Some of us might have been Baby Girl Doe in the foster care system. Let us initiate discussion about adoption and don’t ask us at a dinner party during small talk over cheese and crackers.

There is a lot more, but I had to share that one. Head on over to My Brown Baby to read the rest.
