Yes. They are BOTH my parents.

Now that both my parents have passed away, I wish I had a camera to record the reactions on people’s faces when I’d introduce my Mother, Caucasian, and my Step-Father, African American. You could see the genetic race meters whirring in their minds trying to imagine how much of what went into making me (even though he was my Step-Father). Very confusing for them. We never talked about it. We just loved each other a lot.
