My husband and I have been together for 13 years and married for 8 of those. He is Filipino and I am white. We have a fabulous son and a marvelous daughter, both which do not look like me, except for red highlights in their hair. I love my husband's family and he loves mine, race has never been an issue and we are blessed for that. The only time race ever comes up is when I am out in public with my kids and someone will stop and say, "Your kids are beautiful...What are they?" I get so frustrated inside because the question seems so lame. I feel like saying..."kids?? One is a boy and one is girl." But of course they know from looking at me that my kids are bi-racial. I take the compliment, explain that their dad is Filipino, and we move on.
I am so excited that I found this site. I will be supporting it all the way. Hopefully the awareness will be worldwide by the time my kids are ready to share their lives with someone.
