Romney Family Joins Hollywood fad of Adopting Black Babies..Join us as we speak to an Adoptee Survior, Dockothy Davis! *Last week former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced that he had a new addition to his family.
Romney posted a picture on Twitter with the caption,“ Our 22nd grandchild was officially adopted today: Kieran James Romney.”
The picture was of an adorable African American baby who was adopted by one of his sons.
Now here’s where things get interesting. Apparently the name Kieran means “little dark one” in Gaelic. The name is pretty common in Ireland, which translates to “black” or “dark.”
Mitt Romney, AKA Mr. 1% , has a lot of grand kids but you think he would at least be able to keep count and keep up. He announced on Twitter that his 22nd grandchild, Kieran James Romney, was officially adopted. Um, one problem. Back in July, Mitt Romney, tweeted that he and his wife welcomed their 22nd grandchild. Which is it Mitt?
"People immediately started speculating about what type of life he’s going to have growing up with the Romneys, who are known for being severely out of touch when it comes to the poor and minority communities. We should say a serious prayer for our little Kieran.
Join us tonight on The Gist of Freedom as we talk with Dockothy Davis. Mr. Davis will discuss, growing up as a foster child and then living with a white family in an exclusive white town.

Join host Pam Kroskie as she interviews author and adoptee Richard Hill's book called "Finding Family".
Richard's book is on finding family through DNA. It is a true and intesely personal story of how he pieced together the long-kept secret of his own origins. The highly suspensful book is a page turning saga of personal detective work that will appeal anyone who loves a good mystery.
This book isn't fiction. It's an rengrossing account of an adoptee trying to reclaim the biological family denied him by sealed birth records. This fascinating quest-including the author's landmark use of DNA testing-takes readers on an exhilirating roller coaster ride and concludes with a twist that rivals anything Hollywood has to offer.
It is Wednesday and we are asking some serious questions!!! Question number one!! Should adopted children date each other?hmmmmmmmmmm yummy topic and the QOD: If you could have another spouse, would you? Plus the listening lounge is tonight!!!!! It is the Wednesday edition of the jril show!!!!!!
STEALING NATIVE AMERICAN CHILDREN What we rarely do, is pay the remotest attention to what is STILL happening in the daily lives of the First Nations peoples. Do we look at the abject poverty that has been inflicted on the most at-risk group in our greater society? Are we remotely aware that this poverty is being used as an excuse to steal yet another generation of children?
From Boarding Schools, to Adoptions, the cultural genocide is happening right now; fed by a seemingly endless flow of Federal monies that rewards the States for taking Indian children from their families.
Tonight, I am joined by three amazing women who will tell their tales.
Evelyn Red Lodge is an author and journalist who advocates for the ICWA. Her story is chronicled in "Two Worlds: Lost Children of the Indian Adoption Projects."
Janice Howe fought (and finally won) for the return of her 4 stolen grandchildren s chronicled on NPR.
Molly KillsEnemy is a dear friend who was both adopted away herself as a young girl, and had a son taken from her outside the ICWA when she was young. She now lives with her two sons and one daughter, with another daughter who has married.
Please listen to my honored guests speak of their experiences and stand strong against the vile Christian Alliance for Indian Child Welfare & Lisa Morris who are trying to end the Indian Child Welfare Act - an act that needs to be strengthened, not revoked.

Recently, Pastor Marvin Winans refused to allow an unwed mother of a 2 year old boy to have her child blessed in front of the congregation along with the children of married parents. The baby momma is irate and says she "never felt so disrespected and degraded in my life." Really?
To me there is a big difference between being an "unwed mother" and a "single parent" and folks need to get real clear on that. Single parents could be widows or divorced (with primary custody), or aunts who adopted their deceased sister's children rather than let them go to foster care, or fathers whose wife died or went into the crack zone so he split and took the kids with him.
Unwed mothers have never been married, no signs of marriage, sometimes barely know the fool they are pregnant by. There is a huge difference. But since its Pastor Winan's church, his belief system guiding the church, and his interpretation of religion guiding him why argue with him? Bottom line - what is up with black women having all these kids out of wedlock and thinking its okay? Why do black women not have a wedding first THEN have children? Why say that "babies are a blessing!" when you know you don't have the resources or maturity to raise a child? Why not seek an abortion or a morning after pill? Are out of wedlock children and missing fathers going to be the downfall of the black community? Join us to discuss this important topic. The call-in number is 347-327-9215.
