I'm a mom over 50 with an adopted 7-1/2 year old. That makes me an oddity in my neighborhood, where the other moms are all around 30-35. The trouble is, I'm being left out of the neighborhood group--to the point where our family is purposely not invited to neighborhood get-togethers. And one neighbor even sent my daughter home with a note not to come down the street to play with her kids, when I let her go down and play with the other kids. I can't figure out why this is happening--just figure it's because they don't like having an older mom with a Chinese girl on the street. Has anyone else ever been in this situation? What did you do?
