  1. Future Adopter as a First Choice says:

    Hello Natasha. I’m currently a freshman in college and I’m interested in racial diversity and race-related issues; I also plan to adopt at some point in my life. I just wanted to mention a book that you might find interesting–“Myths that America Lives By”. Some points are dubious but many are well-thought and profound.
