a different direction...

I had a few ideas for some blog posts I was planning on writing tonight. A few that weren't too bad, really. Until I read this post. The idea of sharing slavery and the American history of racial conflict with our Ethiopian daughter is one that is daunting, scary and makes me feel extra uncomfortable. Kristen from the Rage Against the Minivan blog, I've thought, has always done a nice job addressing transracial issues and has many personal experiences to share. I love the blog post she recently wrote about her son's first exposure to the civil rights and MLK and I also love the discussion occurring in the comments section. Go check it out.
