There’s a great deal of strange occurrences that happen in our world. But some things are downright shocking. A woman lived her whole life as an African American woman. She acclimated to the customs of this people and related to their lifestyle. At the age of 75, she has now discovered that she isn’t a black woman after all, she’s actually Caucasian. How can something like this even begin to happen, and why didn’t anyone tell her sooner?
The foster parents of this child had to know all the specifics before they adopted her. They could have told her, as Qnet points out. I am sure the birth certificate said “Caucasian” too. Why do adoptive parents feel that they need to hide things from children? They always seem to find out the hard way and usually there are hurt feelings to show for it. Byrd is not upset though, she is just happy to have found her lineage after all these years.
