My amazing aunt wrote a children's book about our awesome, diverse, ever-growing family, & the community that holds us together. Its also about assumptions and appearances - a deeply relevant exercise in understanding and acceptance. Wanda Remmers inspires me everyday, our family is continually enriched by the blessing of inclusion with so many perspectives and personalities making up our community.

We'd love to hear from you. Below is a video answer to that question. It is on the light side. And kind of rough around the edges. Let's start sharing what makes us unique and enriches our lives! Add your video on our website: www.ifyoulookedatme.com.
My sister recently had her DNA tested. Same mom, same dad so same DNA. I find the results fascinating. It seems that my ancestors were a bit more diverse than I had thought! Just think your parents give you DNA 50/50. Go back another generation you have 25/25 and 25/25 from the grandparents. Then 12.5/12.5, 12.5/12.5, 12.5/12.5 and finally 12.5/12.5 for the great grandparents. One or more of them bring in a little diversity into the mix and it shows up generations later as a 'hint' of what was in your past. I love it!
