One Mom's journey to raise empowered mixed-race children


First, before anything, I’m a Mom.  So we’ll get that straight now.  LOL!  Anyway, my name is Renae (aka sdmom22) and I’m hispanic. I’m married to a wonderful man, Ken (aka ScriptMunkee), whom is black. Together, we have two beautiful MixtKids, PJ (7 years old) and MJ (almost 1).

I launched this site, www.mixtkids.com as a way to open the discussion regarding raising MixtKids in today’s society and creating a community that is open to the exploration of mixed race heritage and the complexities of life in a mixed race household.

MixtKids supports biracial, multiracial and multiethnic youth and their families and offers this online portal as a place to appreciate our diverse community and openly discuss the issues that affect us most. I will also occasionally post on world race issues and other interesting topics of discussion and encourage each of you to read, comment and give me inspiration.  I love hearing suggestions and would also be open to guest bloggers.
