This is a great Q&A if you have or are considering adoption of a child of a different or mixed ethnicity. If you have been wondering how other families manage the often intrusive or outright rude questions from strangers, this is a great place to start. As for our family, we find a lot of humor in stranger's assumptions and how free they feel to share their interest. Our children are very proud of their ethnicity and never shy from sharing. For some families, it is truly painful when asked. How do you manage this for your family?
