I think all children are beautiful but I have noticed that there are a lot of very popular child models who are mixed.  Even ones who model as full asian or full black, tend to be mixed.

I used to live in an area where measles was common. When my family and I contracted the measles, we chose not to report it. I thought it was only health care workers who were required to report it.
