Keri recalls how people react when her mixed-race family is out in a public setting.
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’re just curious as to how our 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 out in public, in the beginning I thought everybody in the world was staring at us and just looking at us, and then over time I forgot. I’d say, "Oh, why are people staring at me? Oh yeah, that’s right, 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 it’s more just a curiosity factor, and I think in society today, it’s getting to be less and less. There are so many mixed-race families, blended families, families that have adopted that, so the curiosity factor.
