Has anyone ever thought that Adads have it tougher than Amoms in adoptions as far as strangers opinions?
When I am out with my kids, people seem to assume that because their skin does not match mine, that they are mine biologically but that my (husband/exhusband/BF, etc) must have had darker skin. When my husband is out alone and since his skin doesnt match, they assume the kids are not his genetically at all (They dont assume his wife must have darker skin)
I remember hearing of this in our homestudy classes but didnt put much weight into it. Has anyone else experienced this?

I can see how a dad could be questioned if he doesn't look like his daughter. I think it's a bit easier with with dads and sons. DD looks a lot like me (she's our biological child and we're white) and my twins look different because they are bi-racial (Asian and white). We have had people comment that our sons look more like their dad because he's Italian with dark features and they have dark features. DD and I are fairer skinned with light brown hair and hazel eyes.
