The Black Adoptive Parent Experience with Adoptive Black Mom

Adoption Uncovered

Jul 30 2022 • 35 mins

Adoptive Black Mom was busy working on her career and waiting to see if a traditional family would happen for her. This was not what the universe dealt her. As she moved through her life she began to evaluate whether motherhood would be something she would pursue on her own. She decided to move toward adoption and as she did it felt to her that often she was on the outside of a system that was not understanding or supportive of Black adoptive parents like her. She began the Adoptive Black Mom Blog initially to keep friends and family posted on her adoption progress, but over time she realized her audience was growing and she had the chance to be the voice of the Black adoptive parent that she missed hearing along her journey.
