I'm Joy, married to Jeremy and mom to 14 month old Edith. We're starting to do hair and I use unrefined shea butter and finger comb her hair so we don't have a mad baby :) The shea butter moisturizes her hair and really brings out her curls!

I'm a single mom to two daughters, one of Maya ancestry from Guatemala and one from Ethiopia. We do get some attention but since I'm always alone with my girls (no dad in our family) I'm always amazed at how many people assume they're my bio kids.

Hi all,

I am the mother of two beautiful, intelligent, African-American girls. They are the joy of my life. There are, however, many times when I realize that being white with black kids draws attention to us. Most of the attention is kind but it does occasionally make me uncomfortable. I feel especially vulnerable when it comes to how I take care of their hair! I am still trying many things but I feel the need to defend myself when speaking to AA women.
