LDS Church history & adopted Black children
LDS Church history and adopted Black children, part 1
Since I was hired to create this blog, Iíve been wanting to tackle the difficult subject of race issues and the Church. In the beginning, it sounded like a logical topic to cover for an LDS adoption blog, knowing that many members adopt transracially. But each time I tried to start mentally composing something, it seemed just too emotionally and intellectually challenging.
Iíve been doing a little ďresearchĒ over the last few weeks, and I suppose Iíve been trying to get my own bearings on ďthe factsĒ and how I feel about them before I write about something Iím certainly not an expert on. Iím just a mom who worries about all sorts of things as they relate to my children, and I kind of figure some of you might worry and wonder about this stuff, too. So this is definitely not a post where Iím claiming to be any sort of authority on the subject; itís more of a letís-get-together-and-chat-about-some-difficult-stuff sort of post.
