Mixed race children

Emily at Doing It All Again reviews a Guardian article by Lowri Turner about her mixed race daughter. She (Lowri that is) sounds almost ashamed.

Our own daughter has a white father and a black African mother. I guess you could describe her as half-black or half-white. It’s really not important. Yes, I know that to some people she will just be considered black.

But to us she is just beautiful. And yes she shares features of us both. Her hair is (or was until it fell out) a crazy wild uncontrollable and beautiful mix of my own straight and her mother’s Afro hair. We wouldn't have her any other way (apart from taking away the leukaemia).

I really don' t know Lowrie is so hung up about this. Poor child.
