Saving the Dream alternately explores the life of a boy growing up with his birth mother and in an adoptive family. It raises interesting questions about poverty, single-parent and two-parent families, and biology. Both families love him and try to do their best, but have different parameters to work with. For anyone transracially adopting black children, I want to add that it gives you insight into middle-class black culture not usually shown on TV.” –MICHELLE
