53% of #SouthDakota's foster children are #Lakota, even though only 12% of children are Lakota. Grandmothers are illegally denied custody of their grandchildren everyday. This injustice has been going on for decades, and stretches far beyond current Governor Daugaard.The answer is tribal foster care programs- and ending the payday for state officials.

Hey guys, I’m trying this out and I really need your help. I made this video trying to get my story out there. My name is Lena and I’m 19 years old. I’m adopted from Russia and have been searching for my birth parents and sister ever since. I have never met them or seen what they look like. If you could share this video and/or give me advice or stories you may have, it would be greatly appreciated. I have no idea if this will work, but I’m trying all my options. I’m just a girl with a piece of me gone missing that I would like to find. Thanks for all your support. Please reblog and share. Thank you!!

Young Dad Wins Back Custody of Child Adopted Without Consent

26-year-old Jeremiah Sampson waged a three-year court battle that forced him to drop out of college to pay for legal expenses in gaining custody of his child.
Sampson drove five hours to Rolla, Mo., once or twice a week for more than six months to challenge the adoption in court. The adoptive parents threw a towel over the baby’s head in court, refusing to let him look at his birth father.
Born and raised in Coweta, Oklahoma, Sampson had four older brothers, three sisters and a mother who worked two jobs to support them all. He didn’t meet his father until he was 13 and hasn’t seen him much since. “I would never do that to my own flesh and blood,” Sampson said. “I would never walk away from my own child.”
Sampson is now suing the adoption agency for violating his parental rights by going ahead with the placement even after he objected.

"#123. To our family: we’re a family member. To the government and society: we’re “charity cases”, legal/court cases, “lucky”, and perpetual outsiders. I just can’t seem to get over the fact that no matter how “normal” my life is to me (cause it’s all I’ve ever known), others will always see us as something strange and wrong and we’ll be treated that way."

""Ethnic" whites are still white. White Jews are still white. So are white muslims. White privilege is white privilege is white privilege. You can experience anti-Semitism or xenophobia or religious persecution and still be white. Remember intersectionality?
Like it or not, you are excluded from or consumed into whiteness based on things that have little to do with your own personal racial identification or cultural heritage. That’s how whiteness operates. It consolidates its power by stretching to contain as many disparate people as possible, to make itself a false majority, and then it makes membership so attractive and otherness so abhorrant that the power structure upholds itself."

This is why it is so crucial to distinguish between transracial adoption and transethnic adoption.

Transethnic adoptees experience the profound loss of heritage and erasure of identity, but they also benefit from white privilege in ways that transracial adoptees never can.

howtobeterrell:

The notion that single parented homes are “broken”

howtobeterrell:

buttcheekpalmkang:

howtobeterrell:

Because there’s no male figure in the home is deeply misogynist and sexist

Not trying to be “that guy”, but there are male single parent homes too.

And those typically aren’t the ones with stigma attached to them. Are…

Ok but that wasn’t the point if the post. And I don’t think two parents of opposite genders make a difference. Children need a community of loving adults. Nuclear families are far to small to really nurture individuals in my opinion since we’re deviating away from the point of the post.

"All single parent homes get a lot o stigma" sure thing @antarcticanking but there’s no worldwide industry and network specifically targeting and trafficking from single FATHERS. There aren’t major “public health” campaigns that slut shame single fathers. When white supremacist “scientists” pathologized single parents & offspring as “mentally unfit” and a literal danger to humanity, guess which half of the gender binary they went in on.

Oh, I KNOW all single parents gets stigmatized. Us Developing World(tm) bastards get classified as orphans just by living in a single parent household, even if both our parents and entire family are still alive. Which (to build on howtobeterrell’s point) is especially convenient if one wants to wipe out our birth cultures that have a much healthier and community-oriented approach to raising children than the dumbshit Western über-heteronormative capitalist nuclear family model. Tobias Hübinette wrote a great piece on how this model purposefully colonizes and destroys non-Western communities.

But this "ALL single parented homes are stigmatized" is just derailing. The assault on single motherhood (especially black and brown motherhood) is unprecedented.

I just got in contact with my biological half brother. I never thought this day would come, I never even thought about it at all. Can’t really breathe. Not sure how to process this. And I’m at work so I can’t cry my feelings out. Holy. Fuck.

Congrats!!!! I’m still working on contacting my half-brother. Still not sure if he knows I even exist. <3 <3 <3 Hang in there! Its an emotional rollercoaster! I hope you guys can start a great relationship!

Congrats! I just found out I have a half-sister, and I’m trying to figure out how to tell my (bio) brothers. They’re both younger than me and not in the same head space with regards to our past. Which is fine, I was there once too. It’s so great to see other adoptees making these connections! Reminds me to hold on to hope. xoxoxo

THIS IS AMAZING, huge congratulations to all you glorious bastards <3

Wishing yall the wellness in the world. I know how freaking immense & indescribable it is going from being a lone orphan all your life to suddenly discovering you have a sibling (or two, or three…) — I discovered the existence of mine months ago, and I’m still working out how to go about contacting them.

Lots of love — let’s keep each other posted. X
