Iv been sitting here wondering what i was thinking when i created this group. Then i remembered. I had to look in my daughters face the other day as she wondered what her child will be classified as when it is born. It frustrated me because in stead of complete and utter joy for just having a living source of unconditional love inside her she was focused already on the up and downs of being bi-racial and having a bi-racial child. I remembered how niave i was when i had her and her brother and sister. Then realized im about to go thru all the questions and stares again. I wanted to proovide a place to vent and scream for what we go thru, simply because you happen to love someone with a different skin color then you. One of my daycare kids said it best when ask if her skin was burned[ the child is white}and we had been swimming that day, she replied, every bodies is. Im just a little darker today.
