When Mariska Hargitay set out to expand her family, she told people that she wanted to do it with black children:

“We talked a lot about mixed-race adoptions, and we are very excited that we are now a multi-racial family. We were considering both international and domestic adoption and we’re thrilled that this is the way our prayers were answered.”

In 2011, shortly before that interview, Mariska adopted two black children: Amaya Josephine and Andrew Nicolas Hargitay.
