And we just want to celebrate what makes you you and different and be good with that and feel good about that and not having to choose mom side or dad side y.can't I be from both culture or both ethnicity or whatever it may be. What were their concerns the boys. You know it wasn't so much they had concerns but I wanted to sort of empower them before they got questions. I wanted them to feel like you know what I'm the best from all over the word. I'm the best of my mommy and daddy and really wanted them to feel strong and somebody said why is your mommy brown and dad white and I just wanted to, you know, help them before it happened.

But for me mommy and daddy are happy in separate homes. They don't need the drama or the details the Gorey details. They just need to know that we love you and we are a family.
