Interracial adoptions have occurred with quite a few celebrities. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have adopted many kids from overseas as well as Madonna. Is this leading to a color-blind society to do this or is it destroying a culture's identity? We're a long way from "Diff'rent Strokes."
Same sex adoptions also have some people in an outrage. Is a same sex couple influencing the lifestyle of the children or is it providing something that's becoming rarer in America each day: a two-parent household?

One of the hardest things many adoptive parents have to do is to decide if the risks or special needs of a particular birth mother match or referral are too great for them to handle.
