Hey ladies! My name's Sonya, I'm a white mother of an amazing 2 yr old and have another due in Oct! My DH is Laotian, and a medically retired soldier. We're both still young, 25, and I look about 16 lol. Both our kids are mixed, obviously. And we love them dearly! I'm just finding it extremely hard because I don't speak the language of his mother's, but she's very understanding as her husband is white *DH's adopted father, but she's his birth mom.* She's teaching my son words, and I'm trying to learn at the same time. I don't catch on as quickly as he does though! But I'm at least trying! And the dirty looks and rude comments we get out in public are hurtful.
I grew up in a very redneck racist town. There were no other colors in our town. It was hard to bring DH home and it really, still to this day, worries me bringing him and the kids into town. We usually go stay with my grandmother, where they all accept anyone and everyone. But I know if I take him uptown people are going to say and do things. And I know a lot of them carry weapons and feel very strongly about "other colors" let alone interracial relationships, especially when it's one of "their own." My family has taken to DH and the kids. I'm very blessed they are not as close minded as the rest of the idiots in town.

sorry you are struggling. It's crazy that you still have to worry about this in 2011.

Thank you Vicki!
