I saw this beautiful, though somewhat sad, article on CNN today. Black women are choosing to adopt without waiting for a man to come around. These black women are successful, strong, and accomplished, but they have not found men who will marry them or treat them with respect. Many have decided to go ahead and move forward with motherhood. It’s beautiful because these women are empowered and not allowing society to hold them back, but it’s sad because these men are turning down something good.
