Talking about adoption, birthparents, abandonment, race, and China with my kids. That's not all we talk about -- but reading this blog, you'll think it's all we do!!!!!

Adoption from China Incompatible with American Values?
Lord, what a bizarre video! Thanks to Reena, who linked to it in the comments to the De-Americanizing Asian Americans post, we can see what at least one crazy person (the video-maker) thinks of the fact that Jon Huntsman can speak Chinese and has adopted a daughter from China! Suddenly it makes him the Manchurian candidate, it makes him Mao, it makes him not-American. Sheesh!
FYI, I have no dog in the Republican primary fight. This is not meant as endorsement or condemnation of any candidate! But I will say I'm completely jealous of Huntsman's fluency in Chinese. . . .
