Beautiful kids, did you adopt them

Amy Hueitt,
Gastonia, NC.

I am a single mother of two children, one who is 8 with Autism, ADHD, and developmental delays. My daughter is almost 6 and typical. My son is black, white, and Mexican. He appears to be just Mexican. My daughter is black and white, she looks white. I am black and white and look mixed. Ignorant people ask if they are my foster kids of if they are adopted, or if I am their baby sitter. It hurts me when my daughter says her and her brother are just white. She is ashamed to be black and declares she is white.
