Add Water and Stir: Women of Color | Adoption | Foster Care | Parenting
About This Show
Add Water and Stir will focus on promoting adoption within communities of color, especially within the African American community. We want to give voice and visibility to families like ours who often seem left out of mainstream adoption conversations. We hope to educate others as we talk about our struggles and triumphs of parenting adopted children. Of course, there will be time for Mimi and ABM will kick it about all kinds of not necessarily adoption related topics as well.

As always I can count on a fresh perspective while listening to this show which helps me navigate my own adoption journey. Angela Harden had great points.

The show is informative and downright funny! I learn not only about the world of adoption, but current events and pop culture. Keep up the great work.
