My Willow Tree Angel (and baby) got a makeover thanks to a friend who is also a white mama with a brown baby. She gave me the perfect shade of paint to turn the white baby into a brown baby.

Being a transracial family is all about adjusting.


  1. Turned out great! I'm considering painting my entire Willow Tree nativity scene! Would love to have a brown baby Jesus this year! :)

  2. can you tell me the brand of paint & her technique? I am a white mama with 3 (& expecting number 4) mixed babies, my husband is black. And I hate that we haven't been able to buy any Willow Tree figures that resemble our family!!
