    If you know nothing about the culture and racial history of an adopted child, you shouldn’t adopt them. Educate yourself, then adopt.

    For the chinese girl and anyone feeling the same thing. Genetics don't mean that much when it comes to the relationship you have with your family. Get that out of your head...think about your best friends, or the person you expect to marry one day. You won't be genetically related but that doesn't mean you won't get to see them as family one day.
    And just like you can be very close to them, you can be close to your adoptive family.
    I am not adopted, I am blood related to my family from all sides and I don't get along with them at all. We don't fight and we may have similar points of view sometimes. But our personalities are simply not compatible, I never know what to say to them, and they never know what to say to me. However, I do get along with so many people I meet at school and other places, complete strangers. It is not a blood related thing, trust me.

    I REALLY love what you guys are doing here. Spectrum for what it stands for and really how you guys BUILD communities around certain topics or identities. It makes me smile every time I see a video on the spectrum series where people at the end are like "OH can I follow you on your socials?" Or when all swoop in for a group hug. It really gives me hope that there are people out there willing to have these conversations, willing to break barriers and willing to be there for each other. Thank you, Jubilee:)

    I have always wanted to adopt when I get older, since I was a young kid. Just the idea of bringing more children into the world when there are millions of kids who need a home seems unnecessary for me personally. And I have genuinely thought about the topics discussed in this video. If I adopt a child who is a different race than me(I’m Mexican) how should I approach their culture and help them feel that connection, how do I embrace a culture that , no matter how much research I do on, I might not fully understand. I guess that before this video, I knew that doing that was the correct thing to do, but I didn’t know how to approach it in fear of making the kid feel separated or excluded from me and the home I provide for them. I would just worry that the kid might wonder why he/she are different and may reject that. Idk man, I guess I’ll figure it out as time goes on, I’m barely 18 lmao.

    I was adopted as a baby and I always knew. One thing I hate is stories and books with the character’s motive is finding out their adopted. It makes being adopted feel like a bad thing.

    Oh my God I feel so bad for the girl in the red shirt she seems to feel she should be grateful the parents who adopted her take care of her- and that she holds back on speaking her mind bc she’s not biological like her sister who does speak her mind
    When someone decides to be a parent it’s their job and responsibility to take care of their kid whether biological or adopted

    I jokingly asked a friend of mine if he was adopted cause he didn’t look like his parents and he got super defensive. His cousin confirmed it in confidence and I was shook. Explained why he would act out and his folks were so overbearing.

    I LOVED this one. Getting everyone’s perspective. I was pausing the video before they answered so that I could h e a minute to answer myself, because I am an adoptee as well. But my mom had us all since we were literally days and months old, so it wasn’t a thing of, “What?! I’m adopted?!”. And it’s like Michael said, “My mom is MY MOM!”. I don’t see her as my adopted mother.
    My ENTIRE family see’s me and my siblings (all adopted) as having been born into the family. And I am sooooo grateful for that. Most of my cousins and my older brother (mom’s biological nephews and son) are in their 40’s and 50’s, but their children are the one’s that we grew up with. We’re all millennials lol, so because we grew up together, they know my siblings and I were adopted, but NEVER has it ever been brought up, because they see us as their family, period.

    3:54 the whole saying of that is actually "the blood of the coven is thicker than the water of the womb" so it has the opposite meaning to what people think

    these situations bring me in such an emotional state, One because i'am a mother i have 3 children that i adore, 2nd why bring a child to this world to leave other people to raise them ( but thank god for them) i just would never see my life without my children, and it freaken sucks that i'am a few of those mothers that would do everything in there power to be a good mother to them and have them in healthy environments with lots of love, care, and discipline. I wish one day these things could change. I hate seeing kids born without both parents ughh

    A child deserves love and parents deserve to be able to give that love. Skin colour is and never should be relative. It simply doesn't matter.

  • Ava Hill

    god.... this video made me emotional just for the thought that people who can go through so much emotional trauma being abused, put through the foster care system and then not having a true "family" until teenage years, still can grow up to be people who are still so strong and determined and still able to take care of themselves as opposed to shutting down and being unmotivated or letting yourself feel unloved. and I just hate how much I have taken for granted the support system in my life and hearing other people's stories makes me feel so much more thankful, which is why I love this channel.

    The original version of "blood is thicker than water" is "the blood of the oath is thicker than the water of the womb".
    My mom and aunt are adopted, and there are family friends I consider family.
