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.

On this episode of Add Water and Stir, Mimi and ABM get back to basics by catching up on a few adoption and diversity topics. The ladies gave themselves 5 minutes to dive into 4 topics. ABM explores the abortion vs. adoption debate as well as suggests that the word “orphan” may be overused in adoption circles. Mimi tackles diversity in movies and TV through the lens of Tim Burton’s Miss Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Netflix’s Luke Cage. She questions whether there is such a thing as too much, too little or just right? The ladies round out their topic discussion by providing some Add Water guidance on avoiding cultural appropriation in Halloween costumes. During the Wind Down the ladies chat about what they’re watching on TV and things quickly devolve into a hall pass “dibs” feud over actor Mahershala Ali. Since it’s election season, they decided to put it to a vote: Who gets to call dibs on Mahershala Ali?

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.
