Sunday Visit: Normal Hair – Micah Bournes

What is “normal” hair?  This is a must-watch by the talented spoken word artist, Micah Bournes.  It will appeal to just about anybody who reads my blog, but if you are a white parent of black children, you really must see it.

If you aren’t familiar with spoken word, this is how Wikipedia defines it, “Spoken word is a form of poetry that often uses alliterated prose or verse and occasionally uses metered verse to express social commentary. Traditionally it is in the first person, is from the poet’s point of view and is themed in current events.”

Isaiah shared this with me, so you can thank him – it’s good stuff.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    He performed at the Justice Conference last weekend and he was incredible. He has a couple videos that I'm excited for him to release. "Who Broke Africa?" and "Thank God for Evolution" are great. Also, listen to 9 and 10 on his album (you can listen on Amazon). If you can't tell, I'm really excited about Micah Bournes. 🙂

    Loved this so much that I made my husband come listen as well. Praise God for talented people who share their gifts giving Glory to God. Thanks for sharing! I am LOVING learning how to care for my Ethiopian daughter's hair. I pray that she will know and believe that she is gorgeous and her hair is fabulous!
