My little sister (10.5 years younger than me) is married to an African American. The whole family was devastated when she miscarried. They have adopted three of his grandchildren (his daughter’s from a previous marriage). I also have several biracial great nephews and nieces.

My brother is a retired Marine (bird) Colonel with a Thai (now US) wife who just moved to Colorado Springs with his 1-year-old twins (He’s 62, his wife is almost 40). He moved after studying to find good school districts. In North Las Vegas his wife knew other Thai spouses. The pandemic is slowing down them finding friends, but Colorado Springs does have a significant retired military population. And my family is in the Denver area.
