Things People Say To Transracial Families

An online friend posted this YouTube video (made by adoptive moms) on her blog and I thought it was both funny and a little close for comfort.  Seriously I have heard the vast majority of these comments (some of them many times!) and flinch every time, even knowing that most of them have been made by well-intentioned people.


  1. Ooooohhhh- that's cringe worthy!
    I'm wracking my brain hoping that I've never made any of those comments, they are awful!

  2. oh. my. word. this is great!! I have heard all of these, I think, except of course the ones about girls from China. Thanks for posting!

  3. Yep, I've heard most all of them too. Funny and sad all at the same time...
