If my baby is born a ginger, I'm giving it up for adoption.
I met my husband 6 years ago, but didn't meet his estranged father until just last year. He's a ginger. Ginger adults don't scare me in the slightest, so I didn't think much of it. No biggie.
I was adopted as an infant, I never knew my birth parents, but I have been searching for them since I turned 18. I'm 25 now. Just this past week, the agency that my parents used in my adoption contacted me, saying they had been contacted by my birth mother, looking for me. They gave me her name, address, and phone number, and I used this information to find her on Facebook...
Turns out she's a ginger woman.
I didn't make any connection on my own, my DH says to me last night, "babe, you do realize that since we each have a ginger parent, our baby has a 50/50 chance of being ginger as well... Right?"
His brother's daughter is a ginger kid, but there aren't any gingers in his wife's family, nor is he ginger. That child was ginger just from ONE grandparent having that gene! My child will have 2!
I'm so SO terrified that this baby will be ginger, and I honestly don't know how I will feel if he/she is one. I love my baby already, but I can't control my anxiety and panic when it cones to ginger children. My sister suggested adoption... I'm considering it. Problem is, no one wants to adopt ginger kids...
I'm so SO lost.
