I saw a photograph of Judge Barrett’s family this morning. I was intrigued because she has two black children and having an adopted black daughter myself, I did a bit of Google searching to learn something of her story. The top story was from the New York Post and I was very disturbed. The tenor of the article was that her adoption of these two black children by an “ultra-religious” American was sketchy and further went on to say that trans-racial adoptions were fraught with trauma and potential harm! Geez, man. All kids deserve a chance in this world and this woman has the moral character to give these kids a chance. I suppose that I wouldn’t be shocked if it were 1965 but I truly believed we were way beyond this sort of thought process now. Is this going to be the tenor of her upcoming hearings?
