Another great post that really hits home! My adopted son is biracial. My husband and I can feel when people are uncomfortable with our family, it's a really icky feeling. We live right outside of RVA and I LOVE our community. We have never felt unwanted in our hometown. However, I can provide a list of places we have traveled to that did not give us the "warm fuzzies". I will have to say that I am super happy that I have a boy and I don't have to worry about hair care. I took his older sister to a salon in Regency once and she screamed so much (only washing and brushing, no braids or anything). The ladies in the salon were amazingly patience and kind. All that is now left up to her mom :)
Being a (insert all that apply: birth, adoptive, transracial, single, military) parent changes everything!

Thank you! We really do need to get together! Yes, Richmond has been overwhelmingly welcoming in comparison to Lynchburg. Yes, we still sometimes get the icky stares or ignorant questions, but it's NOTHING compared to what we dealt with in Lynchburg.

What a disturbing article that I am sure is read by more teenagers that actual educated women. SICK

Do the younger twins have any medical issues? Where was the aunt when Pooh and Piglet (and other siblings I believe) were taken into care?

WOW> that is amazing and you look fabulous! I truly appreciate you sharing all parts of your story with your readers. I don't need to lose weight but I need to get healthy. I also get very tired running around with my kids. I just want to FEEL GOOD.

Thank you! Yeah, it has been a huge change in me. And when I have bad days, I know it's because I didn't eat right the day before. I'm not depriving myself of anything, just making smarter choices and packing in as many micronutrients as possible! The change in my energy level has by far been the biggest change!!!

This really hits home. I understand. IMO - There may be valid reasons for my son's birthmom's behavior that caused him to come into care but that is not an excuse to neglect/abuse your children. She knew she needed to stop making poor choices and she was given support to change but it didn't happen. She only continued to do the same crap over and over. I hope your kids' birthmom can learn from her mistakes and grow from them so she can have some sort of relationship with her children. Unfortunately if she is still hanging out with a dangerous person (father of her children or not) then more than likely she will not see the error of her ways. I am praying for you all.
