We're All Nontraditional

I had been working on a post, "We're all black." In it I discuss how a black friend of mine only half-jokingly suggested that one way of thinking through "white mother-black child" is to refer to Haiti's declaration of freedom, which declared all Haitians, regardless of skin color, to be black.
A popular adoption forum removed its "Non-traditional Families" board, because that board was "too political" - not in content, but in the nature of its existence. But here's the thing: it's all political, and in the adoption community, we're all nontraditional.

What family at all is anymore? All different, but all the same.
