My mother is red haired, blue eyed Danish/German. My father, dark haired, brown eyed Mexican. I married a man whose biological mother was a 6foot blonde of Swedish decent, and we assume his father was African american. Our offspring consists of a 22 year old, red haired, green eyed freckled face beauty of a girl, and a 6’5″ tall carmel skinned, blue/grey eyed 19 year old son. We all get asked: Where are you from? Answer: Oregon. We all get asked :What are you? It gets complicated.
