I received my first mean racial comment last week.
It hit me out of nowhere & left me stunned & speechless. Later on, it made me SAD & MAD! I felt this chip growing on my shoulder & , for a little while, felt defensive & distrustful of the world around me. I wondered, is this how my friends who aren't Caucasian feel? How do I deal with these feelings?
I am a MOM! I can easily become a MOTHER BEAR when my babies are attacked! How can I prepare for the next time?
How can I live transparently & with an open heart of love all the while knowing that mean comments will come?
I am seeing that, even after all the thinking & researching we have done, I have A LOT to learn about becoming a multi-racial family. I'm going straight to God with it, for strength & wisdom & protection. I am looking forward to what I believe He is going to be teaching me.
Anyone have any helpful comments? Maybe things you have learned that have really helped your attitude, helped your heart?
Meanwhile, we are SO in love with our beautiful sons & are so thankful & humbled that we get to be their parents! Thank You Lord!
