We Are Family

This interview is very provocative.  Some will love and relate to it and I am sure others will not.  This is because it features Andrew Solomon and his partner who decided to adopt a child.  In some respects, it reminds me of the ABC show, Modern Family.

It is tempting to turn this into a gay marriage issue or an adoption issue, but that is not why I am posting the video.  Rather I posted it because there is great insight provided about the challenges of parenting children with vastly different values or capabilities than their parents with “Far from the Tree”

I certainly cannot agree with everything contained in this interview, but I do appreciate its ability to provoke thought and discussion – for so many different reasons.
