So here is a new issue that I didn't learn how to deal wth in pre adoptive training. What do you do when you 14 year old daughter asks her 19 year old birth brother to be her friend on facebook? She asked permisson, we talked about it and placed conditions on it, and we agreed she could. Now here is the clinker---after reading his profile, I have found that he is a member of the MN Skinheads facebook group!
Lest anyone forget, Hope is African American! She has met her brother (who is her half sibling and caucasian) several times over the years. He seems to love her and has always been concerned about her well being. He is in an excellent adoptive home and also proclaims to be "drug and alcohol free." Frankly that is even more disturbing to me. At least if he was a drug user, I could chalk up his skinhead attitude to being not in his right mind.
Okay, wise adoptive parents out there, I need you!
