When you’re a single, black, adoptive mother, you look around this culture and find very little representation. So much so that your story may be invisible to the white majority. While we know that not every family looks like Donna Read, many white moms may not realize the ways that we can support black moms—or make it even harder.


  1. The 4 vital things that every mom, but especially solo moms, need
  2. Black moms have the added burden of teaching 
  3. White parents can do things to ease the burden on black parents

Nefertiti Austin is the single mother of two children she adopted from the foster care system. Her memoir, “Motherhood So White: A Memoir of Race, Gender, and Parenting in America,” was recently released in September.
