Congratulations on your pending adoption! :grouphug:It’s an amazing journey filled with highs and lows! Interracial adoption comes with it’s own particular mountains and valleys and can bring out surprising reactions from family, friends and even total strangers, both good and bad. Be prepared for STRANGE questions from total strangers, but mostly positive reactions. Thankfully, most people have sense enough to realize you did a wonderful thing by adopting, especially across racial lines, but you might be disappointed by people who are closest to you and who you wouldn’t expect it from.
My DH and I adopted from China and although I expected some negative reactions from my very prejudiced family, my dad has totally fallen in love with his little China angel. He even wants to fly a Chinese flag from his tractor! (I told him that might not be a good idea!) My mom was a little slower to come around but now she loves her, too, I just don’t think she loves her quite as much as the bio grandkids.
Your parents and in-laws might happily surprise you with their reactions, or it might take meeting your little angel for them to fall in love with the baby. Give them a little time to adjust to the idea and hopefully they will come around. Your family will be in our prayers!:signofcross:
