People can never choose the looks of their children, whether they donate their genetics or adopt. We had some very intense discussions when we were deciding what races to choose in our adoptive profile regarding matches. We decided to choose all race combinations that had caucasian. Example - Caucasian, African American/Caucasian, African American/Hispanic/Caucasian, etc. It had nothing to do with looks. We just thought that if our child would be identified as a different race, we would still have something in common. Our oldest daughter is biracial, AA/CC. So, when it was time to adopt a second time, we narrowed the field in hope to have another child that would look like our first daughter. It was close. Our youngest daughter is AA/CC/Vietnamese. Some things about them are similar, some are not. The differences between the two of them, and between them and us, are more noticeable when the whole family is together because the remainder of the family is CC. Most of the time, I forget about it until someone makes a comment. But that’s a whole different forum!
