Hello, I'm Anastasia Ivanova-Jones (nee; Ivanova). I'm 34, and ethnically White Russian, but now a naturalized US citizen. I spent 20 years in Russia (born), and currently 14 years in the US.

I have two beautiful sons with my husband of 11 years; who is black. We have Igor William Ivanov who is 13 and Mikhail Isaac Ivanov who is 5. They are gorgeous! Both green eyed, olive skinned and blond afro-like curly hair. They're my world! :-) I gave them Russian fore names and incorporated my surname (male variant) into their middle names in respect to my parents.

Hey. I'm Dana and I'm 22, a single white engaged mom of 3 beautiful black sons that are 4-1/2, 3-1/2 and almost 2. I am Scottish-Scandanavian decents and the fathers of my sons are Black-African decents. I think they turned out beautiful and I am with the father of my youngest for nearly 3 years now. My finace'e is prolly the darkest-skinned of the daddy's but my 22-month old isn't the darkest of my sons. But, I can see him getting a little more darker lately. My fiance'e, Da'Quan, and I hope to be married by the end of this summer.

Hey, i have nine beautiful afro-Caribbean/italian-hispanic kids 4 Sons & 5 Daughters,Rafael(12),Shaquielle(11),Brianna(10),Kyle(9),Vanessah(8),Kimberly(7),Jaden(6),Layla(5) and Amaya(3)...............whooooo!!! {boy am I tired of giving birth =)} looool! who were all born in the U.S as we live there.Am afro-Caribbean and my husbands Italian/Hispanic.Am actually not of pure African descent. Growing up i used to wonder if my family and i were really of pure African descent being that my mom and her sisters all had different shades of fair skin with thick long curly hair specifically my mom whose hair was goldish and had hazel eyes and my grandparents who were of medium brown skin with my grand father having hazel green eyes.As a result of my moms skin colour and my dads dark brown skin i came out light brown in colour ( with thick dark wavy hair )minus the hazel eyes.At that young age i used to be so confused.It wasn't until i was about 12 yrs that i found out that my great grand fathers were white indian and french but their wives my greatgrand mothers were african with really.... really.... dark skin which explained all the variations.So now as a result our daughters all speak and understand english spanish italian and a little french creole as i speak it to them because my husband and i think they should have the best of both worlds. = )

I have 3 beatuiful bi-racial girls, age 18,16 and 5. I am white and their dads are black. We live in a town that is starting to have more blacks and bi-racial families living here as years have passed. There was a lot of prejudice talking going around but not as much as there was when the older 2 was born.You just have to be yourself and not worry about what others think about u. I have always said that we all bleed red so whats the problem?

My son is half white and half black.

You can tell he is mixed by his skin color. Some parts actually look black, and some actually look white.

I'm white and his father is black.

Well I consider myself black as I see it comes in many different colors and shades both of my parents are mixed black and my dad was old when he passed his birth certificate said negro on it and lived as a black man and my mothers the same even though they were mixed with other things not just african descent so I guess even though and light with not so much Kinky hair Im black and my bf is mexican and our daughter looks mexican she's 11 weeks! I mean looking at her you couldn't see that her mommy is from african descent. Ive never met one white relative of mine nor one who's from africa all I know we're black. I claim my daughter as bi-racial and plan to raise her neutrally i don't see my african background is big because none of my family is from africa so i dont know much on it really. Im not african american nor is she we are just Beautiful Americans with a little bit of everything in us lol.

Hi I have mixed twins. I'm black and their father is white. He passed away when they were six months old. They are mostly around blacks but I don't want them to lose their white heritage. Their grandmother visits every friday and I look forward to her visits. I try to keep his family involved with them as much as possible.

My name's Heather (19yrs - white), my boyfriend's name is Cole (20yrs - black), and our son's name is Adonis (9mo). We've been dating since 11/12/2008 (almost 2yrs) but broke up once for a few months.
Adonis came out whiter than myself. But now he's darkened up to a few shades darker than me. His hair is about the same color as mine and was straight at birth and only just recently started to curl. Just loose curls which look amazingly adorable. And he's got gray eyes which often get mistaken for blue or green (depending on what colors he wears).
But he's got all of Cole's features; nose, hands, feet, ears, eyebrows, hair lining, tongue, smile, etc. Even got eczema like him. And by watching his chest while he breathes sometimes, it looks like he might just develop asthma like him as well.

Hey, My name is Tahisha. I am Puerto rican (but dark skinned, nappy hair! lol), my boyfriend is Irish/German (mother's side) and his dad is from Barbados. He is lightr skinned with dirty blondish/brown hair. People think he is hispanic and I am black! lol. My little mamacita is "tri-racial" I guess. Black, White and Hispanic! I like that we are mixing this world up!

We have 6 biracial children that are the most beautiful things I have ever seen!! They have so many differences. I love the creations God has given us!!
