White families often adopt black children

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

But do black families ever adopt white children? 

White families often adopt asian children?

do asains ever adopt white babes?

This was something a group of us were discussing the other day. We came to the conclusion that we've never seen anyone other than white families adopting white babies. But we couldn't come to a solid reason why?

No, there really aren't.

We were pondering adopting a child from foster care at some point.

When I look on my state's website of available children, 90% aren't Caucasian and for those who are Caucasian, about 50% of them are significantly disabled; the other 50% much old (teens) or admitted behavioural problems.

Thats silly, of course there are.

As far as I know, no.  But there really aren't as many white children available as black children, right?

The cost? do you think minorities maybe don't have the same financial means as the white population?

The cost of adoption? Statistically there are more AA children in foster care?

I've read that it is easier for Black families to adopt black kids. It's hard for a black family to adopt of other races. Especially Asian. I've researched it a lot because I want to adopt.

No, Im saying that adopting out of foster care is less expensive then private adoption, and in the foster population there are more minority children

Adopting an older child from foster care and adopting at birth are completely different things.

I think you would have to do some research as to the number of minority children in foster care.  Also, if the majority of the population is still white, it would make sense that more white people are adopting.  To be honest, I have never know a minority couple to adopt.  But I'm from a mostly white area where the minorities are mostly from the Middle East and Africa.  They usually don't have educations or do much to succeed, with a few exceptions.

There are more white families adopting and more black/biracial babies being put up for adoption. Simple math.
