Because people are ignorant and selfish. As you said, any person receiving the gift of a child should feel blessed. It disgusts me that so many white people would be willing to adopt, and yet not want to adopt a multiracial baby (I am white, but someday i actually want to adopt a multiracial baby). Oh, and I love the families that claim to be "Christian" and yet refuse to accept differences in people. Kinda goes against the whole ideal Christian morale, huh? If you think about it though, you don't want your child to be raised in an environment that won't accept people for their differences. I wish you the best of luck finding a good family for your child, and I also wish that people would not be so ignorant about differences.
