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.

AWAS 055: Celebrating Black History Month with Family
5 days ago
February is Black History Month in the United States, and this is a month when the hosts really go hard on raising awareness about the contributions of African-American and black Americans with their children. ABM and Mimi discuss how if families are talking about the contributions of diverse historical figures all the time, then the need to compensate during awareness months is less. Black history, as well as diversity contributions from all people of color, should be integrated into family life every day. The third week of February is National Random Act of Kindness Week. The hosts discuss how observing this awareness week provides a nice opportunity to teach their children to be kind to each other. Let’s start a wave of kindful acts. days when they chuckled about Cissy Houston side-eyeing Aretha Franklin. Mimi and ABM conclude the show with a big announcement: Add Water and Stir will be sunsetting at the end of February. The archives will still be available as will the Facebook page and Twitter feed. The show is being retooled and rebranded. The ladies will be back and ready to rock in early June 2017!

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.
