People say all kinds of stupid things to transracial adoptive families. Kristin Howerton at Rage Against the Minivan and her friend, author Jillian Lauren, are both adoptive moms to black children. They teamed up with another pal to make this video of all of the ridiculous and insensitive things that people have actually said to them over the years.
Some of this makes me crack up but most of it makes me realize how nosy people can be. Please, everyone lets all stop making transracial adoptive families uncomfortable with our dumb questions. Deal? Because I’m pretty sure that the reproductive status of the mom in line at the grocery store is none of your business. And no, she does not want the name of your fertility doctor.
