In Their Own Voices: Transracial Adoptees Tell Their Stories (indispensable--and absolute must read for anyone adopting a child of a different race, my number 1 recommendation).
Being White: Finding our Place in a Multiethnic World
Black Baby, White Hands: A View From the Crib
Weaving a Family: Untangling Race and Adoption (I read this one very early on in our process...intriguing and wonderful--highly recommended).
I'm Chocolate, You're Vanilla: Raising Healthy Black and Biracial Children in a Race-Conscious World
Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?: and Other Conversations About Race
This is just a very quick list, put together between the chores we're doing today to get ready for four of my family members coming to visit tomorrow. Please help me fill in the gaps, as I know there are many more excellent resources out there. If you know of more, leave a comment and I'll add it to the list.
Oh, and if you need some new music to listen to, this playlist is what I'm currently loving, put together by our friend Neola whose departure from Portland this Sunday I am bemoaning (click on the mixtape and let Jack and Loretta wash over you). At least she's going back to the South so we'll hopefully get to see her there...We love Neola.
