I look TOTALLY like my father. The only thing I got from my mom were her eye shape and her color sort-of (I am biracial and my mother had sun-bleached blonde hair and blue eyes, while my father was a black man on the slightly lighter side of black.) So who do you're children look more like?

We are an interracial couple... our first looks like me and our second looks like my husband. And the kids don't resemble each other.

My kids look so much alike I have trouble figuring out who is who in older pictures. Three boys, all resembling their father, but with my coloring (blond).

my bio son looks like a male version of me. Once in Boy Scouts he was in a skit and wore a wig and a dress and it was really weird cause he looked just like me when I was his age. He would not let me take his picture!

All 3 of our daughters are adopted and Asian. Once when a woman came up to me and my infant daughter all gushing with saccharin nosiness she said "Oh she is so cute. She must look like her father". To which I replied "I don't know. I never did get a good look at his face".

That is weirdly hilarious NK. I hope somebody else got a picture.

My daughter is deceased now, but most people used to declare that she looked exactly like me. She didn't. She actually had more of her father's features than mine. But her blend was interesting. She had black eyes turned up a bit at the corners like her fathers, but they were large like mine, and her complexion was like mine.

My daughter looks like a blend of both of us and people have remarked on the family resemblance. My son and hubby have facial features in common. It's amusing since both kids are adopted, lol.

I had an acquaintance many years ago who was adopted but looked just like his adoptive father where the biological son looked nothing like his bio parents. Strangers would comment. Strange how things work out.
