      We’re Indian-American With Adopted White Children And Here’s What People Ask Us We are at the sofa, reading a book and out of the blue she asks “Am I Indian?” I ponder the question and tell her she is.

After going to many adoption agency campouts and culture days, and even going back to India in , I realize that I have more parts of Indian culture than I thought that help keep me in the middle.
