This is a great post about MLK and being a transracial family. It has helped me put some words around my own feelings and thoughts today as we celebrate Martin Luther King Day. Check it out at Ethiopia or Bust Blog.
“I have a dream…that little black boys and little black girls will join hands with little white boys and little white girls as sisters and brothers.”
” I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
“I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
i haven’t been on your blog for awhile. don’t know why. congrats on baby meyer!!! your family is precious. love that mlk’s dream is being lived out in your home.
do you happen to know clay and jenny scoggins? we just spent the weekend with them and they said they have friends who adopted evyn from ethiopia. i said “i think i follow their blog!”. maybe she’s not the only evyn from et, but it seemed like they were one in the same to me.
pray you are enjoying life as with your precious 3!
Yes, Clay and Jenny are good friends of ours! Small small world!
