Introduce Yourself

It’s encouraging to meet others who share similar experiences. Will you please tell us a little about your multiracial family? Where are you located? How did you find us?

  1. Hi! My name is Nicole and I’m from Florida. I’m so happy to have found your blog (and web site)! My husband and I are both white and we adopted two beautiful girls from Ethiopia. I’m looking forward to expanding our support system and sharing the joys (and struggles) of having a multiracial family!

  2. Hi Tracy

    I really enjoy reading your blog and viewing your website: http://www.icelebratediversity.com. I am learning to be more intentional about teaching my family about diversity. I want my kids to grow up knowing that we are all equal regardless of our skin color. The quote on your site by Maya Angelou says, “We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.” What an amazing quote that gives such meaning to race.

    You give great tips on how to communicate more effectively about race and cultural differences. What you are doing is an inspiration to many. Keep up the great work :)

  3. My name is Lori and I live ina small town in Pennsylvania. I am white, my husband is black (he does not like African American” and we have a beautiful 12 year old daughter. I found your website and blog while doing a websearch on biracial/multiracial issues…My daughter is having a bit of an identity crisis where she does not see hrselkf as Jewish…now granted most people do not see her as Jewish but she is…She has quite the background…Tutsi, Masai and Jewish…

    I look forward to reading your blogs.

  4. Hello. So we are not yet a family, per se, but my boyfriend and I talk a lot about race and the role identity/multiculturalism will play once we have kids. I am black (from VA) and he is white (from Boston). We live in Brooklyn now and will probably set down roots here, in hopes that the diverse communities and surroundings will nurture our little mixed bebes someday.

    Found your blog through Tiff Jones’s Mulatto Diaries. Keep it up!

  8. Hi Everyone,

    I am Carla and I was recently introduced to your blog by another mom who is participating on the same committee for diversity and tolerance at our school as I am. I am so glad she lead me to this blog. My husband and I are white and our children are black. Our daughter was born in Oklahoma and has been ours since birth. Her birthmom is an amazing woman who we honor and love. Our son was born in Michigan and we are still navigating court dates and Foster Care in hopes that he will too be ours. The task of raising our children to be confident and proud of their unique culture that comes from a variety of sources, is proving to be a difficult task. I pursued a degree in cultural studies in an effort to learn more, I have studied social work philosophies, I have immersed myself in various types of cultures and I still am afraid that I just won’t do the right thing. Finding such a rich resource makes this awesome parenting adventure a little easier. Thank you!

  9. My name is Donna and you can find me at http://www.ThisNest.com, where I celebrate our interracial family and share our beautifully chaotic life through stories, opinions, and poetry. My husband (black) and I (white) are college sweethearts and have been together nineteen years. We began raising his seven siblings, some with special needs, at the age of 22. Nearly two decaded later, and with all the siblings grown and gone, we are focusing only on the five blessings God gifted us with – our three sons and two daughters, age 16-1. It has been a journey so far, to say the least, and we have done a lot of navigating as a black, white, and brown family. We feel like we are embarking on a whole new adventure now, Life Part Two. We do our best to instill in our children the knowledge that they are gifts to the world also, and to confirm to them that God wrapped them in the most precious packages He had.
    I also write for Multicultural Familia @ http://www.MulticulturalFamilia.com.

  10. Hi. I found your site via google. I am a mixed race child with half siblings on both sides of the race line with parents who thought racism was a thing of the past no matter how many times one of us came home crying.
