    Reading "Rainbow But Not Unicorns" turned my inner world upside down. As a white adoptive parent to two TRA daughters (Guatemala and China), I had had some training on the challenges of having two non-white children in my household. Reading RBNU gave me a whole new understanding of the world of a TRA child, not only from the perspective of loss of birth family, but loss of a culture, loss of having a family that looks like the child. My daughters see a white mom and white mirrors in media and at school and everywhere. Mae Lynn provides hard hitting testimony to being raise by "well meaning" white parents, and the irrevocable damage caused by narcissistic adoptive mother and passive father. Add feeling "othered" by being a different race, she paints the powerful picture of isolation and fear that comes with being a black child with white missionary adoptive parents. In reading this book, I was pushed into the reality that non-white children need racial... More > mirrors, need me to embrace their perspectives and provide to them an empowered base to help them fully embrace their childhoods as TRA kids. Thank you for raw and revealing testimony of your childhood, Mae. It is transformative.< Less
