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.

Welcome Church! This week we are reading Romans Chapter 8.
So Jesus has come, so we're not slaves to the law. Huzzah! Paul explains, Christians live under "the law of the Spirit." This is kind of like the laws of the Torah, but without worrying about following all 613 individual rules. Circumcision, for example, is optional (which is good news for male converts). In Jesus, God did what the law couldn't—he punched sin in the face and reunited the world with him again. Nice work, God. Non-believers don't share in this, though. They just walk around like ordinary, puny humans, thinking of ordinary, puny things. They can't possibly be thinking of God or following his laws because they don't believe in Jesus. But believers have lives and hearts that are filled with the spirit of God. And they're going to be best buds with God forever because of it. Believers have been adopted into God's family. They're his sons and daughters and he would totally do anything for them. Sure, it's true, Paul says, people are suffering. But all that's fine. It's gonna work out. Really. Plus, later, the rewards are going to far outweigh all the bad stuff everyone has been going through. Every part of creation is waiting for God. Soon, everyone and everything is going to be set free from sin and death and evil. It's all going to be awesome-sauce. And the people who are tight with God now—well, things are gonna work out for them big time, Paul tells us. Seriously, God sent his son to die for us. Don't you think he'll help us with all the other stuff we're going through? The Big Guy always has your back. It doesn't matter if Christians are arrested or persecuted or condemned or even killed—nothing is going to separate them from the love of God.

Our host returns live tonight at 11 pm...tonight we will be revisiting the subject of celebrity interracial adoption. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were among the first Hollywood couples known for adopting internationally. In the most recent time period, many more celebrities have come forth to do the same, and the difference is that more Black children are the adoptees than ever before. The challenges of standard adoption in itself fare difficult enough, and one of the major challenges is the desire of the adoptee to connect with his or her identity. Are the challenges of interracial adoption by high profile figures doubled? Is the cultural identity of the adoptee at a higher risk of being eradicated by these adoptees? And in cases such as Madonna who has been in controversy for making racial slurs and has now adopted two more Black children, are these celebrities adopting out of love or commercial gain? Join in tonight at 11 pm EST by calling 347-327-9967.

Tonight's special guest is Shaunda Gilleland from Collinsville, Oklahoma, a child abuse survivor and single mother who shares she knows she's not yet worked enough on herself. Shaunda's mom was a drug addict and alcoholic who worked nights as a nurse and would leave her two kids in the evenings with her boyfriend. Shaunda was beaten and molested many times by the man, and he threatened to kill her if she ever told. But her bruises were noticed in daycare and she became a foster care child. Eventually she was successfully adopted, but the trauma from her youth dramatically effected her later. She drank and got involved with a series of "the wrong men," one of who raped her, causing a pregnancy and miscarriage. By 21 she was married to a man who drank all the time. She decided she was going to fix him and after numerous bad incidents the two began attending AA and Al-Anon 12 Step programs, together and apart. He began drinking again and she felt like she wasn't good enough. "I ended up cheating on him," Shaunda shares, "I was lost and weak and the guy showed me attention." The couple was divorced. "To be honest I always thought that people who had vivid emotions about their abuse were weak. They where deciding to be the victim," she admits thinking. "I have gone through life telling my story as if it belonged to someone else. Until today." She goes on, "I'm learning that its ok to have fear, feel dirty, feel unwanted. One of my biggest issues in life today is that I have no emotions." Shaunda is reaching out for help, but knows she's had some successes, too. "I started a business 2 years ago. It makes happy and excited. It's something that can't be taken away from me." And she goes on, "My son is now 6, and in my world he loves me regardless."

Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org
St. John de Britto -- Jesuit martyr in India. He was a native of Lisbon, Portugal, was dedicated at birth to St. Francis Xavier, and was a noble friend of King Pedro. He entered the Jesuits at the age of fifteen. In his effort to promote conversions among the native Indian people as a missionary to Goa, he wandered through Malabar and other regions and even adopted the customs and dress of the Brahmin caste which gave him access to the noble classes. In 1683, John had to leave India but returned in 1691. Arrested, tortured, and commanded to leave India, he refused and was put to death. Pope Pius XII canonized him in 1947.
