A good friend adopted a new baby last February. The mother is white and the father is one of three men.
- The mother’s boyfriend, who is black.
- A married hispanic police officer.
- A Native American drug buddy.
The mother is my friend’s niece so they are in contact. The black boyfriend is willing to submit to testing to see if the baby is his. The mother refuses to tell the cop because of his marital status, so there will be no testing. She has no idea where the drug buddy is. She hasn’t seen him for more than a year.
By looking at this little girl, it is all but impossible to tell which man is the father. She does not have any of the prominant features associated with each ethnic group. Her hair is black and slightly curly and her eyes are brown. Her skin color is a light brown. Her facial features look very much like her mother.
My friend would love to know this little girls background. Although she is being raised by a white family, she wants her to be familiar with her heritage.
If the test results from the black man come out positive, problem solved. If not, it still is between a Native American and a Hispanic, neither of which will be tested.
Is there any way to tell which ethinic group a person belongs to without testing the father?
