Light brown, dark brown don’t matter!!!

I am a grandmother and I love being a grandmother but with it comes some heartache because of some of the stares I have to endure when I am out with my grandson. I am African-American with a dark brown complexion and my grandson is mixed with Mexican, Italian and African-American so his complexion is almost white. Needless to say I love my grandson dearly and wish people would stop starring and looking at me like I have kidnapped this precious little boy and if they have questions to just ask because if you look at us together we look alike just one of us is light brown and the other is dark brown. Don’t just wonder, if you don’t know then just ask.
