My roots are in Texas and Mexico. While some may look at me and say that I appear to be Latina, often they aren’t sure. My father’s last name is of Italian origin and my grandmother and grandfather (paternal) both had blue eyes and black curly hair. My mother’s family is proud to be a mix of Native American and Texan heritage. I married a man who is African American, Filipino and Russian. I am amazed at the possibilities and love every difference that I see in those I meet. I could never choose just one race for any future kids I have. Let them choose and be proud of everything they are!
