But He was Brown

Anna is a particularly social child who loves everybody, especially older boys and men. Often when another dad shows up at our house, she acts like she has seen him before in Ethiopia. We have worked with her on this trying to get her to understand how unlikely her statement is.

Well, last night we had a family over for dinner. When we gathered the troops for dinner, Anna went up to the other dad and said, "I used to know someone just like you in Ethiopia . . . but he was brown."

ha ha ha - I love this - our Serena is also very social - and loves men & older boys too...
it's interesting their view on their color - she often gets "up in arms" when someone mentions that she's black - "I'm not black - I'm brown".
