My adopted Black sons are priceless.

Tom DiMartino,
Boston, MA.

I had the immense pleasure of listening to Michele speak today in Boston, and the topic of adoption touched me personally. I am a white man with two adopted black sons who mean more to me than anything in this world. The topic is touchy and Michele’s comments on it were emotionally challenging, thoughtful, and accurate. I wish more people would adopt children in need, as there are still so many more than there are parents. I also wish that I did not know that black boys are statistically less likely to be adopted than any other demographic. If that made an incredibly difficult process easier on some minuscule level for us, so be it. We will forever be proud of the two amazing young men that we are so unbelievably fortunate to be able to call our sons.
