My Transracial Adoption Journey – Part 3 | Mixed Space

My Transracial Adoption Journey – Part 3 | Mixed Space | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

Suddenly we were parents of a baby again!  And anyone who has had a baby knows that “sleeping like a baby” is anything but!  Unless of course they meant “wakes up every two hours wanting to be fed.”  Still, he was our little guy from three weeks old.  Honestly, it felt more like we were over-glorified babysitters for the state at first.  But in time he found a place in our hearts and that place grew and grew until we couldn’t imagine him not being in our lives.

My Transracial Adoption Journey – Part 1 | Mixed Space | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

I must admit that when my wife first suggested we adopt I wasn’t sure if I was up for it.  We already had our daughter but we wanted another and circumstances were such that this was probably the only way.  The question I kept asking myself was “Could I love a child that wasn’t my own?”

We didn’t set out to transracially adopt.  In fact, quite the opposite.  When you apply for adoption they give you a form with boxes to check to indicate what you’re looking for.  They give options such as age, gender, and even what disabilities or medical history you are willing to accept (such as depression or deafness).  Of course, they also include race.  This is no guarantee that this is the kid they will offer.  Their goal is to find a child as close to what you want as they can.  They’re not interested in just dumping children on people.  But you also have to understand that the more restrictive your options the longer a placement will take.

My Transracial Adoption Journey – Part 5 | Mixed Space | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

These last few years have been about building closeness in our family like any other. To catch you up, we have a daughter and adopted a then baby boy. Now he is 4 years old. We signed him up for itty bitty soccer, he performed in his pre-school Christmas singing program, and then there have been frequent but brief stints in the timeout chair. He and his big sister get along great for about 20 minutes at a time. Truly, most days I don’t feel our family is particularly different than most.
