Hi- I'm the Mom. I'm Anglo/American - we are fast becoming the minority but I have children that are mixed - Filipino and Anglo and I have adopted children that are all Filipino. We forget or don't pay attention to our ethnicity, until something reminds us.
My son is multi-racial and multi-cultural because we lived in Asia for 10 years.
The bottom line is, we are all people with similar challenges and similar desires...we love our children and family and want to be successful. When we stop worrying or prioritizing our skin
differences, we have more time to be people. My son likes to say, "My differences aren't my problem, and they are only your problem, if you make it your problem".
