There is a possibility of our family moving to the Alpharetta area. My husband and I are white and we have 3 biological children. We also have 2 adopted African American children. Is the Alpharetta area a place where our bi-racial family would be accepted? Any thoughts on how our family may be treated? I would appreciate any advice. Thanks!

That's not uncommon at all, even out here in the hinterlands. I wouldn't lose any sleep over that.

Thanks for the reply! We live out west in an area where there are virtually no African American residents. So, with a move to the South we are not quite sure what to expect. We look forward to the opportunity of raising our children in a multi-cultural environment!

I was in the Atlanta area (not Alpharetta though) recently and found it quite diverse.

My neighbors are a bi-racial family and my home is in Dawsonville...about 1 hour north of Atlanta...I agree with the previous poster in that I've seen a lot of diversity.

I live in Alpharetta and work in one of the elementary schools. There are many families in our school with children of multiple races. Not uncommon at all.
