The Adoption Of The First Child
Recently, splinternews.com Splinternews.com did an article about a young couple that decided to make the decision to adopt children. Meg St-Esprit is a freelance writer who lives in Pittsburgh. She and her husband decided that they wanted to find their own religion. They went on a search for God, and they found a church that they really loved. After getting acquainted with the members of the church, St-Esprit and her husband began the process of adopting their first child. Their son was a local blue-eyed, blond haired boy. All of the members of the church were happy for the family. The church members congratulated them , cried with them, hugged them, and made Meg St-Esprit and her husband feel like heroes for adopting such a beautiful child.
Adopting Black Children
Meg St-Esprit wrote an article about the different experience that she and her husband had after adopting adopting two black children. St-Esprit felt like the members of her church had rejected her black babies, and she was very surprised that many of them showed racist attitudes. It was something that she never realized because she is a white woman herself who does not have a prejudice bone in her body. Because of so many racist comments that were directed towards her children, St-Esprit and her husband decided to move to a new area. The family also found a new accepting church.
My Take On The Experience
The experience of Megan St-Esprit and her husband is deeply saddening and also moving. It shows that there are many people who are hiding racist feelings, but it also shows that people like Meg St-Esprit and her husband exist as well. They are amazing people who truly do not see race; they only see love and hope. It is wonderful to read a story about people who are so open and loving. I hope that St-Esprit and her family find peace in their new church and acceptance in their new location.
