How does society react to your mixed-race family? Keri: They are very curious. Most of the time people ask us questions just out of curiosity. Some of those questions aren't really the politically correct questions but we just look at it as they are just curious as to how your family came about. I have had one or two encounters where it has been a little bit negative and I just addressed it and moved on. When we do, go on public, in the beginning I felt everybody - I thought everybody in the world was starting at us, and just looking at us and then overtime, I forgot, I would say, people are - why are people starting at me. That's right because my daughter looks different than me and now when I go out in public, I don't even notice it, my sister came to visit me and when my sister went out with me, when we got back home, she says, oh my gosh Keri, everybody just stares at you guys and I just - you know and it's more just a curiosity factor and I think in society today, it's getting to be less and less, there is so many mixed-race families, blended families, and plain families that are adopted that. So the curiosity factor is I think more about how did you come to this decision, where are the children from, versus, a race, a negative race issue.
