Family matters; race, not at all.

Phyllis Kedl,
Little Canada, MN.

Ours is a multi-ethnic family. We have fourteen grandkids, only five of whom are ethnically related to us. The rest? Two African American, three Hispanic and four Chinese. We are anything but vanilla, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Your project, Michele, may offer our country’s first — and, alas, only — honest look at what we Americans think about race. Thanks for that.

This one of the gaggle of grandkids was taken at Christmas last year. One of our adopted daughters and her children were on a trip, so there’s another pic of those three, taken before they left.  Finally, there are the grandparents — my husband and I — on our 50th wedding anniversary in the summer of 2011.
