‘Why is your mom white?’ Without skipping a beat, my son said, ‘Families don’t have to match.’ My heart exploded.’: Adoptive mom doesn’t match children ‘in color,’ but says ‘we know we match hearts’ 

“My family doesn’t look like most. I am a white mama to three beautiful, brown children. And although most of the time we don’t notice, others around us do.
