Tonya Keefer is the mother of two beautiful children—both of them adopted. They had both been left by different birth mothers who were both addicts and could not raise the children themselves. Since the day Keefer became their mother, they have been the light of her life.
So imagine her surprise when, on a regular day out for a fun family dinner, she returned to her car to find a hateful and ignorant note.

The note read:
“Just because the girl is black does not mean you have to treat her any different than your white child.
You and your husband walked off and did not look back for the little black girl to make sure she got out the car safely.
You should be ashamed.
Seems like you’re racist.
Give the black girl back to her mother.
You and your husband are white trash.”

When Keefer read the note, she was stunned—and then she was upset, for reasons contrary to what the sender of the note might think.
“The ‘black girl’ as you call her, is so much more than the label you place on her,” Keefer wrote.

“She has a name, we call her Leah. She has a beautiful personality, a silliness that is endearing and a laugh that is infectious,” Keefer wrote.
“She is talented and creative and hilarious.”

“In fact as we drove into the Zaxbys parking lot tonight she was bouncing and giggling in the back seat, being her incredibly unique self.”

Keefer goes on to say that while the author of the note only saw a “black girl,” Keefer saw an answer to her prayers.
“You can’t see the times I’ve cried or lost sleep wondering if I was good enough for her,” she wrote.

“You see the ‘black girl’ with the white family.
But I see an answer to my prayers, my daughter, my miracle.
I’m sorry that when you see my children you judge them by the difference in skin color, I truly am.”

“Both of my children were abandoned by their birth mothers.
Both of them were born to addicts.
Both of them deserve the very best of life.
And I’ll admit they deserve more than I could ever give them.”

 

“They are my joy, my hope and my life. And I am so sorry that you can’t see past the differences of our skin color to be able to see any of that,”
Keefer is not angry, but she wanted to share her message in the hopes that the author would see it and see past color.
“If this note ever finds you, I want you to know I am not angry and I would love to buy you dinner and offer you the chance to get to know our wonderfully unique family,” Keefer wrote. “God bless you!”

    You can not judge a book by its cover that “black girl” is loved just because they seen something different doesn’t mean they don’t care about her she look happy in the pictures with her family even thou she didn’t give birth to her that’s who raising her.

    People can be so rude for no reason. This story really touched my heart. In my own opinion real love doesn’t have a face or a color love is love. If you dont have anything good to say dont say nothing at all.

    This is such a beautiful story. With everything currently going on in the world it’s takes a lot of courage for people to do things like this just because no matter what you do you’ll be judged. I’m glad she stood up for her beliefs because not everybody would. Beautiful family ❤️

    Beautiful story. People are quick to judge based on what they see on the outside but couldn’t dream of this little lady actually being happy with her new family. Continue to love them both, they’ll forever be grateful.

    I love this because while the person who left the note saw color, the mother was able to describe beyond the eye who the girl was and not what she looked like! Love has no boundaries and racism is taught. I love how her family is different and I’m sure because of those differences they will be a stronger and more loving family!
