Some other things to think about are the racial makeup of the church you attend, the school your children attend, the neighborhood you live in, the places you frequent. Will where you live make your child always be the one who looks different?

i just sat down to explore these links and clicked on love isn't enough (which is a heartbreaking title!) and the first thing there is an article on the 10 most segregated cities in the US. Guess what is #2 on the list? Milwaukee. We live just south of Milwaukee and an hour north of chicago which is also #5 on this list. interesting!
