This book was so difficult for me to read I started it last winter and finally finished it tonight Every time I read from it it took an effort to pick it up I'm relieved it's over I'm going to have to read something fluffy nextI think it's good that I have read it and am going to focus on what I learned from it and not all the fears it raised in me The story is a memoir of the first African American baby to be adopted by a white family in New Mexico He was born in 1968 and his adoptive family lived in an overwhelmingly white community The book focuses on his struggles growing up one of the very few black people in his familycommunityschool This book intimidated me he makes it clear that his adoptive parents did there very best to make him feel loved and every much a part of their family as their biological children were But he didn't It's scary to think about I am going to do my best to learn from his story and be very clear with our daughter about her adoption story I hope so much that we get information about her biological family so that we can share that with her I will strive to keep lines of communication open We will not ignore the color of my daughter's skin We will discuss it and I will do everything I can to help her feel proud of the way she looks and how it represents her culture One of the parts of the story that stuck out to me was when he watched Roots It was very hard for him to watch it and see the horror that was slavery in this country It made his biological mother very uncomfortable and I can't remember the exact uote but she said something like You're being funny about this I could see myself wanting to slip past conversations that will be hard and will make us uncomfortable But it is important to validate my future daughter's feelings and be a support system for her

White Hands a waterfall of jazz splashing over the rocks of love pain and the honoring of family Magically this book finds a way to sing as it cries and to exude compassion even as it dispels well entrenched myths Baby White Hands A View ePUB #8608 Destined to become a classic this stirring account is sure to find itself well worn stained by tears and brushed by laughter in the lap of parents adolescents educators students and professionals Here comes the rain and the sunshine all at on. I find this book to be self indulgent and than a little repetitive Jaiya John says the same thing in every chapter He had a good life with good parents but felt disconnected from his family and friends because his race wasn't something he could talk about This book would have been an excellent memoir and an important piece of literature for those adopting black children if it had been better editedThe poetry in this book is beautiful and it may be worth reading just for that Jaiya John overdoes the prose however continually using several adjectives adverbs metaphors and similes to describe each detail of his life A person cannot just say something he or she tenderly tells or let words pass through their lips The same points are hammered page after page Somehow the childhood he conveys is one in which he suffered pain shame embarrassment and low self esteem He writes that his brother Greg also black must have had the same thoughts too but Jaiya John apparently either didn't ask him or Greg didn't want his opinions in the book Jaiya John often speaks for other people and we're left with an incomplete picture of his lifeThis book is not the best one about transracial adoption Other than this man's self pity there are maybe a dozen salient points put forth The rest is redundant and overdone
