Hi Ladies. My name is Kayla. I have 3 kids and pregnant with my 4th. My first husband (Father to my 2 oldest children) was 1/2 hispanic and 1/2 white. Him and me divorced and I remarried a man who is 1/2 mexican and 1/2 black. We have one son together and are expecting our 2nd child in October. His Mom and Dad are both from Mexico as are most of his relatives. Most of his Dad's side including his Dad are deceased. Because they are all from Mexico, that is his culture. It has certainly been a challenge for me as a full on white, all american girl lol. We have made it work pretty well for the past 9.5 years though

My oldest son has had a tough time with the whole interracial thing. He cannot seem to grasp that he is not entirely white. I am not sure what to do with him. I can almost label him as racist and it makes me soooo sad! I have NEVER seen color and have NEVER raised him this way (clearly as being in an interracial marriage). Any suggestions to get through to him? He is having a tough time with this new baby...told me he doesn't want any more Mexicans

Hello and Welcome!

I'm so sorry that you're dealing with this. It has to hurt your heart. Do you think maybe he's been bullied about HIS hispanic heritage and that's why he's turned his back on it?

I'm sorry to hear this. I think we are both in the October DDC. How is he now that the baby is here?
