Is it black?

You don't even know how many times I've heard this comment. It started out with my Grandmother who asked if we knew the donor and then "is he black"? What would compel someone to ask a question like this. Granted I have no problem with African American donors and I think biracial children are adorable, but when you have two white, blue eyed parents what would make someone think they would choose an African American donor? If that had been the only comment it would have been funny, we made a joke of it, but we have heard this a half dozen times. When we went to our 3D ultrasound the pics were so dark and some had shadows that it was brought up again. Then at our first shower it was asked again by one of my friends. It's like, are you kidding me, why do you keep asking this stuff. And no incident is related, which makes it even worse. I think we are destined to have a biracial child even though the profile says and always has said Caucasian. So this morning we are joking again and Rach says well if it comes out black you'll have some explaining to do. I just look at her like "me why me, it would be the bank, I surly didn't mess around". She's so foolish!
