    I am a Caucasian foster mom of a black child with unknown paternal Background and we will be moving to adoption. You mention the need for transracial adoptive parents to be sure to introduce Black culture to their adoptive children. I’m puzzled as to how best to do that. Are you taking African, Jamaican, carribean or American black culture. Where is a parent to start?
