IDear Dr. Poussaint: I am responding to your column
about interracial adoption.
II am white, a former social worker,?an adoptive parent,
and a child welfare, consultant with personal knowledge
I of many interracially adopted children.
As you indicate, mose of these are black. Native
American or Asian children adopted by white families.
However I do know of a while teenager adopted into the
family of a black professional athlete.
Like most black applicants, this family was motivated
to adopt by the disproportion of waiting black children.
But they were to any child who needed them, and th?T
boy with a troubled past and keen interest in_sports
?seemed right for them.? 1
In another, more unusual case,) a middle-aged black
widow rescued a white newborn baby girl about to be
dropped off a bridge, but didn't legalize the relationship
for several years. However, adoptions of white children
by blacks are surely rare. I know of only these two.
??Before the- interracial?adoptton^was?rare
because physical matching of the child and the coupie
was in vogue. But in the 60s these concepts began to be
challenged, and adoption was recognized as different
from biological parenthood.
"Room for one more" families emerged, and
experiments with interracial adoption began as a way to
assure a home for every child.

' and tried in other ways to maintain a sense of black
I identity in their children. Followup studies reveal that
most of the children are doing well.

their own agencies and pioneering more flexible
adoption standards which have been imitated by other
agencies seeking homes for older children, black or
white. Adoption subsidies also permitted many black
foster parents to adopt their charges.
So, black infants and toddlers are almost never
adopted by white families any more. In 1971, about
2,500 black children were placed in white homes, but the
number has shrunk now to a few hundred, mainly older
and handicapped black children. Most agencies will~
consider an interracial placement only after efforts to
find a like race family have failed.
Black couples must be aware that there are now many
more qualified white applicants for healthy white
children under 6 than children available for adoption.
"Therefore, their chances of becoming parents of such a
child are virtually nil.'
However, such black couples might be able to adopt a
handicapped or older white child. They should not
approach an agency with an exclusive request for a white
child ^any more than a^ white couple should ajsk
suspicious of such requests, ut if they are;genuinely
willing to take a child of any race w ho needs a home, they
should stress that.
They should also realize, however, that black children
wait longer for adoption, especially black children with
handicaps and boys over 10. So if race really is irrelevant
to them and they want to go where the greatest need is,
they should consider such a youngster.
As you^ai4T-this roattei^is^very complicated and not
easy to explain in a few words.
