I was just wondering how everyone else's family feels about your partner being a different race and your children being ''mixed''? I am white and my husband is black. I am from Holland and he is from Ghana we now live in London, UK. When i told my family about my husband being from Ghana they were not very impressed when I got pregnant lots of them told me that it would be so diffecult for the child being 2 races. Like I said I live in London and we never really get any comments regarding our race we live in a an area were there are lots of mixed families. But when I go to Holland everyone comments all the the time, I have had comments saying ow it is good that she is not that dark, some one bought me baby clothes and said I didn't know what to buy for a dark baby, and when we go somewhere people will always comments on the coloured baby! I know in Holland it is not that common for races to mix but I would at least expect my family to support me. I know they love my daughter and don't really care about her colour but they always seems to make these insensitve comments.
Does anyone else have this and what do you do??
