"Thank You"

Good Morning!!

I hope everyone's New Year has gotten off to a wonderful start!! It is hard to imagine it is 2007. We started back to school yesterday and it was hard to write '07 on everything. Time is flying by.

I wanted to start this new year by thanking all of you who have read this blog and responded so positively to it!! I want this to be a place where we can share both positive and negative occurances while being involved in a multi-ethnic relationship and raising our children in this day and age.

Dealing with the race issue is very difficult at times. I want this to be a support system for all of us. A place where we can share stories of our lives whether they are dealing with raising our children, dealing with hair issues, or just simply supporting one another with everyday life occurances while being involved in a multi-ethnic relationship.

As far as hair goes, I AM on a mission to let people know about the JFM Texture Softener. I am not trying to change hair, nor do I want kids to feel bad about their hair. The fact is, I have a daughter who is bi-racial and I live with her hair issues everyday. I also have to listen to her everyday!! Some days she is happy with her hair and other days she is not. I remember when I was little, I wouldn't be happy with my hair. I wanted it to be curly because my hair is straight as a board! It doesn't seem to matter if you are caucasion, hispanic, or is pretty much typical that people always want hair that they don't have!! :)

I want those of us who have bi-racial or multi-ethnic children to have a resource to share stories, gain knowledge, or just simply get ideas about how you handle certain issues. With the JFM Texture Softener now available for us, I feel this is a great stepping stone!!

I love reading your comments and being able to share pictures with you. I hope you share lots more with me!!

To all... I hope you have a very happy and healthy new year!!!

Until Next Time,
"Sunflower Mom"
