It's funny how there was a recent report saying that red-heads are a dying breed.. and yet my DH and I managed to have a red head child, and neither us or our parents, siblings, cousins etc were red. Apparently DH's grandfather (who died 60+ years ago) had red hair... and who knows where it appears in my family !!!
Obviously the recessive genes found their way together when my son was created !! I like to think of it as doing my bit to save the species
