Be an Ally, and Have a Safe Weekend

To say this week has been tough is an understatement. One True Gift stands with Black Americans everywhere, and we are heartbroken at what has transpired this week and in the weeks, months, years, decades, and centuries past. There is no excuse.

We are allies, and we are here for you in your adoption journey and beyond. We’ll be sharing more content here and on our social media feeds to amplify equality in adoption, parenting, childhood experiences, and raising Black children and children of color in America. If there’s anything you’d like to see us cover or talk about, please let us know.

May this weekend offer you restoration, a moment of healing, a bit of sunshine, shared joy with friends and family, and even a moment’s relief from the traumatizing, challenging, and heartrending news cycle.

Here are some of the thing we’ve been reading this week:

On becoming anti-racist (don’t sleep on the comments).

The unbearable grief of Black mothers.

This week on the blog: do we need to be posting our children on social media? “Sharenting” is a modern-day parenting trend, and it’s not without consequences. 

Parenting mishaps don’t have to be permanent. 

We must always be talking to our children about race. 

This family documented their international adoption journey, and then recently re-homed their special needs son. 

Signed, sealed, delivered: this family is yours! 

The Stuy couple made an interesting discovery while researching China’s “one-child” rule. 

National Foster Care month has highlighted an Iowa couple who made it their mission to help children in the system. 

The Children’s Bureau is offering online training and orientation for prospective adoptive and foster parents. 

Are slumber parties a thing of the past? 

Positive parenting is what we need right now.
