  • Raising two boys in the south, this multi-racial, cross-cultural, and multi-lingual blended-family works hard and plays hard. Chris and Donella's older son Dylan—who they co-parent with Chris’ ex-wife— is a straight A student who loves soccer and cheering for Real Madrid. Their younger son, Miles, attends a Mandarin Chinese immersion school where he loves to play violin and compete on the swim team. Whether English, French (Chris’ native-tongue), or (a remedial version of...) Mandarin, their home is always filled with music and love.We love to connect with YOU, no matter what language you speak.

    Straight A student. Never met him and I'm so proud of him. And a future doctor. Fantastic. Your family is beautiful. You seem happy and your future looks so bright. Are you teaching your sons French? Always good to know another language. Vous êtes un excellent exemple de famille prospère.

    Love does not see color. I am a black woman( both parents are Black) with a mixed race child. My family is also mixed race with relatives who are Black and: Native American, Japanese, Philippino, and Caucasian. We don't play that racism stuff and we accept everyone. It is 2018 and time to move past color lines.

    I'm half Norwegian and Half African American, I am a pale tan with very long, and only slightly wavy hair. My Norwegian family says I am too dark, my African American family says I'm too light. But my mother loves me just the way I am. Thank you two for being wonderful parents in a world full of so much hate.
