Adoption In South Africa

13 September 2012, 08:44

Considering adoption an interesting thought has crossed my mind apart from the fact that I feel I would like to contribute something to the life of a child which he or she won’t have had otherwise.

Most white people are more likely to end up adopting a black child than a white child mainly because of the availability of black orphans. What would the long term influence of a generation of black adults be on South Africa who was raised Afrikaans or English?

The chances are very slim that we will get the opportunity to adopt a white baby since most of these kids are either raised by other members of their own family or they are scooped up within hours after birth by white parents who are on a waiting list.

To most potential parents race become like the background radiation of the cosmos, almost unnoticeable because having a child at all is more important to them than having a white child.  They will do almost anything and adopt any child just to be privileged enough to be parents.

If white people continue to reach out to black children the way they do we will soon create a generation of black adults which will be Afrikaans or English in terms of their culture, upbringing and even political views.

Imagine the impact such a generation of young adults might have on a country like South Africa?  Their view and definition of race might be completely different from ours since who they are, is not defined by their skin colour anymore but by their culture and upbringing.
