Dawn Davenport, of “Creating A Family: Adoption and Infertility Education and Support,” just posted on Facebook:
“NPR Weekend Edition has asked us for help finding a young adult transracial adoptee (black child adopted by white parents) for a follow-up on their show on transracial adoption last week. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll send you their email.”
(“black child.” We were just talking about that. “Perpetual Child” is not a myth.)

Could it really be true that NPR did not contact Angela Tucker or any of the many adult transracial adoptees who commented mightily on Sunday’s interview, and who have tweeted and blogged in detail and abundance?
I am hopeful that Angela will now be featured, since she was considered then passed over for a white adoptive parent, many of whom have been featured on NPR.
NPR, you can reach Angela at her blog. Hope that happens fast.
It’s way overdue for the voices of adoptees to be heard.
