Black Mom & Her White Daughter Film Video Addressing Common Questions in Her Comment Section. It’s Gone Viral. (Watch)

Jeena Wilder and her daughter

*A Black mother has decided to speak out about the false assumptions that commonly end up in her comment section when posting images with her white child.
Jeena Wilder of Dallas, Texas, and her 6-year-old addressed the comments in a viral video posted Aug. 26 and shared with Wilder’s 90,000 Instagram followers. “There were specific questions people would ask like, ‘Are you the nanny? Are you babysitting these kids?’” Wilder told “Good Morning America.”

“No. These are all my children…all four of them.”

“Instead of thinking of other avenues on how people can become mothers, they automatically assume,” she added. “It’s saddening.”

Jeena and Drue Wilder first had their daughter placed with them four years ago after her biological parents were no longer able to care for her. The child’s biological parents are related to dad, Drue, so it was a kinship adoption, Wilder explained. They officially adopted their daughter in October 2019. The Wilders also have a biological 7-year-old, 3-year-old and another 6-year-old.

Wilder’s video of herself with her daughter has been viewed by more than 57,000. Many parents commented, revealing how it resonated with them. Wilder said she hopes to inspire more BIPOC (Black, indigenous and people of color) to adopt. “Then, it will not only be the norm,” she added. “But we will see more children getting adopted.”
