The Power of Genetics

…Okay, disclaimer: this isn’t strictly of Hapas. Nevertheless, it’s still fascinating to see how much children can resemble, or not resemble, their parents, the building blocks from which they were crafted by chance.

I was amazed by the art project featured In the link above, from FastCoExist, which paired half-faces of children and parents, sisters and brothers and relatives with different connections, to demonstrate the difference between people from the same gene pool.

Some images highlight how much children are merely youthful versions of their parents, while others suggest an unwittingly pleasing combination of both maternal and paternal contribution.

For example: I know that I resemble my Caucasian father much more than my Asian mother and usually get pegged for a Quapa. Or some kind of Southern European.
