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?

She's been told incorrectly.   I have adopted children, white and non-white,  not through DCFS not "very" expensive -not cheap, but reasonable.  Legal costs (including homestudy), living for a week or so in another state and travelling costs......and it didn't take "years"


Quoting SpnFulOfSugar:

My sister has looked into adoption. She could literally adopt a minority child through DFCS within a few months. She was told that the process could take years for a white child. Even through a very expensive private adoption.

I'll tell you why. A healthy white infant goes for about $40k.

Birthfamiles get to pick the adoptive familiy.   Most people simply place within their same race.  

Many social workers also recommend it.
