Clinton At Her Graduation
by Marty Gallanter
Cross-racial adoption was not an issue in the early seventies when my wife and I adopted Tisha. We wanted a child and this two-year-old was in a foster home. It was a good foster home, with caring foster parents, but the adoption agency said that only about one in a hundred ever found parents once they passed their first birthday.
None of that mattered. We fell in love with this child and we wanted her as part of our family. That was it! Yes, we knew that raising a child of another race might present some difficulties (and it has) but they were nothing compared to not having this child, or this child not having parents.
Maybe she would have become a doctor without our help... maybe not. That's not important. What was important was that a child found a family and a family found a child. Because of our own experience, Tisha, her mother and I support President Clinton's plan to protect cross-racial adoptions, to provide tax credits for those who do adopt and help those of limited means to make a wonderful, important life choice.

If I Were President
What would be the first event
I would be good, just, and fair,
If I were President of the United States, Chief Executive I would be. I'd make sure laws are obeyed And law breakers would pay a fee.
If I were President of the United States, Head of State would be one of my hats, Representing the United States And then traveling back.
If I were President of the United States, National Leader I would be, Protecting the interests of the United States In our pursuit of life and liberty.
If I were in charge of the U.S.A., I'd make America better day by day. Legislative, judicial, and executive all three, The branches of government would make us free.
The only war would be one on drugs, I'd do away with gangs and rehabilitate thugs. My main platform would be education, if I were President of this great and mighty Nation.

I'm a Multimedia Developer living and working in Nashville. I'm married with no children - just Pip! Pip almost visited the White House when she was 3 weeks old. We had stopped in Washington on our way home from Pennsylvania, where we had bought Pip from the farm near where our car had broken down on the way to a wedding (see, there's a reason for everything). As we walked by the White House we were invited by the Park Police to come in for the tour. We figured they must have seen that my wife was holding a small puppy and that it must have been okay. We went through the gate security - no questions asked - only to be stopped by the Secret Service just steps away from the White House entrance. They were concerned about possible conflicts with K9 units and Socks, the cat. We were kindly escorted out.
As to why I'm plugging for President Clinton on my web site, all I can say is that if I could put an interactive bumper sticker on my car, I would, but I figured it might work better on a web site.
