Author speaks on interracial adoptions and empowerment of girls
I am a graduate of Rutgers University, an author, a former special education teacher, and a mother. After my three youngest sons with hemophilia contracted HIV from contaminated blood products, I wrote Cry Bloody Murder: A Tale of Tainted Blood (Random House, 1997), a scathing indictment of the blood-products industry. This book was instrumental in affecting change to blood safety legislation and gaining Federal compensation to the 10,000 HIV-infected U.S. hemophiliacs and their families. This book is still cited in most law schools, and is required reading in some. In 1999 I took a leave of absence from law school to adopt a child from war-torn West Africa. The need was so great that I ended up with six West African daughters. One of my daughters is renowned ballerina, Michaela DePrince, with whom I co-authored Taking Flight and Ballerina Dreams (Random House, 2014). I primarily speak on the following topics: The Empowerment of Daughters, My Experience as a White Mother with Black Daughters, The Argument for International Adoption, and Raising Children with AIDS in the Early Days of HIV.
