Quite a few people have pointed us to this New York Times article on transracial adoption today. (Thanks daddyinastrangeland, Naro% and Takara!) I haven’t had much time to formulate any intelligent thoughts on this yet, so I’m just going to paste some excerpts here for your review.

I am quite struck by the main photo used to the illustrate the article though. Maybe it’s just the way I’m reading the picture, but to me it looks like an anonymous white man kidnapping a cute black child.

Here are links to some bloggers who have covered it:
