My Child’s Birth Caused a Shocking Revelation About Who I Am

Cover picture for the articleSlate Plus members get more Care and Feeding every week. I (32 F) was adopted at birth by a white family, and grew up with the understanding that my birth parents were Italian American. I have dark hair and eyes, and olive skin. I now have a 1-year-old daughter who has pretty clearly darker skin than I do (my husband is on the pale end of white, so it didn’t come from him). If you were to see her with zero context, I think most people would assume she is mixed with a Black parent.
