    difference in races makes it even a fun thing for the girls and others while growing up, in our diversity comes our strength, good thing you were bold enough to put this up here as not many will do this. bravo and thumbs up to you.

      Thank you lexhan. You are so right about strength coming from diversity. I am happy to share my experiences because it is hard to find true articles on this topic. Thank You for reading! -Amanda (The Determined Mom)

  • Great post. I love that there are so many mixed race family sites and blogs now. 🙂

    I’m also half Cameroonian (my dad was Cameroonian and my mum is English). Unfortunately I grew up not knowing much about my Cameroonian family. I only lived with both parents for the first few years of my life and then I came to England with my mum and my dad stayed abroad. He died last year but he put me in touch with a cousin who lives in America a few years ago, and I’ve learnt a bit about my African family from him. I think it’s great that your daughters have both you and their dad in their lives so they can learn about both cultures. 🙂

    P.S. That is very true about people wanting to touch your hair! lol.

      Hello! Thank you for reading my post! I was super excited to see that you were able to relate so well to it! I am sorry to hear of your dad’s passing.
      I am sure his family in Cameroon would have loved to meet you. Do you know what area of Cameroon your Dad was from? My husband was also really excited to hear about your comment. I am going to check out your blog as well. 🙂 If you have any questions about Cameroon, I am sure my husband would love to answer them for you! 🙂
