thought-provoking adoption story for every family, 27 January 2015
Author: sreichgibson from San Francisco

"Brown Bread" is a story of one family that touches on aspects of all our families. When an vibrant, idealistic white couple with two biological children adopt, over time, four children of different backgrounds, they challenge many of our society's assumptions (then and now) about race, class, education, adoption and parenting. What one of the children thinks of as an "experiment" and all the children (and grandchildren) think of as unique is also all our families' stories - our triumphs and failures of parenting, sibling relationships and coming of age. A serious topic is handled with real empathy, great grace and much humor.
