i am white, my daughter is half black. but my other kids are white. i get looks a lot. people always ask if she is adopted. that hurts!! she is not adopted. i think people that ask are just plain ignorant. i have actually had people ask me how it is possible that all four of the kids are mine since the boys have blond hair and blue eyes and my daughter has black hair and brown eyes with darker skin. um hello....i slept with two different men....duh!! as if this is so strange? my daughter is 10 and my boys are 4,2,16 months. so it isnt as if they are quadruplets or something. that would be confusing i!! anyone else out there with a biracial child that gets looks or questions??

well, i'm mixed and my mum's white so we often get the looks, almost everywhere, but my mum mostly doesn't even notice it. i always do because of the way i look i became very aware of these things. my mum also often got the questions if i were her child, and the other day, in the store, she was paying something and i said "mum" and the saleswoman just looked at her and then at me and was utterly confused. i almost started laughing. i also have a sister that looks white so people never belive that we are sisters although we have some features that we share but it's always a good laugh in the end. I know it can be frustrating sometimes but try not taking it so seriously every time and try ignoring the looks.

I do not have any children, but my bf is not sedish like me - he is from bulgaria and Turkey. This has created some problems for us, since alot of people disagree with our relationship and automatically thinks that I will have to convert to islam and that he beats me *lol* he is the most wonderful man in the world though so I do not care what anyone thinks. I love him - and so does my family and friends.

I'm Asian and my husband is Black Hispanic. I have had people come up to me and ask me if that's my biological kid. When I tell them "yes", they are very surprised. I ask them why. They say cos' he's got curly hair and different complexion. But duh..he's mixed...of course he's not going to look completely Asian like me!!!
