I am Caucasian married to a Cambodian man. Our kids range from light skinned, like me, to tan, like Dad. I think they are exotic and lovely!

Totally biased, but I think bi-racial kids are some of the most beautiful human beings I've ever seen! I love it!

I'm white (some kind of European "mutt" hehe) and my DH is Chinese, but he was born here. He only speaks English.

We just had our baby boy in September . I think he looks like DH, DH thinks he looks like me... lol

Oh, and my DH is the only person I know who uses the word Caucasian. LOL

I love this board. Many of the other boards I visited only had black/caucasian multi-racial couples chatting about there little ones. While I have nothing against this mix.....I feel that I cannot relate considering that I'm caucasian (American Mutt of mostly Irish and German descent) and my SO is Chinese (born in China moved here at the age of 7). Then I stumbled onto this bored and found many threads involving Asian/Caucasian unions. I was curious to see what my little one may look like and also the types of difficulties others face having IL's that are from an asian country. I love my boyfriend's mom and I'm going to meet his dad and many other Chinese relatives soon after the baby is born. We plan to speak Mandarin while in the house and english while in public in hopes that our little one will end up being fluent in both languages. I can't speak Mandarin right now but rosetta stone for Mandarin is on my baby registry so hopefully I'll get it....if not I'll buy it myself, lol.

My husband is from Japan, born and raised. I am from Alaska and am Alaska Native, Yugolsavian, Mexican and white. Our son looks Japanese. I speak Japanese fluently and we are raising our son Bilingual, but since he is surrounded by English, I am very skepical if he will be bilingual.

Hello - your post really threw me for a loop! I am caucasian (Czech and Slovenian heritage) and my husband is Asian (Chinese-American). Our son is also named Jasper but he was born 07/14/05...we call him our little Chinese Czecher.

We recently began TTC #2, and I am so eager to see how another baby will look!

I'm white, DH is Korean-American, and I'm currently gestating our first gorgeous eurasian baby.

I'm so excited to see what this baby will look like, and I have dreams about it all the time.

ETA: As for language, we both speak minimal Korean, so we'll just stick with exposing him to the food, since we both love that! And I'm sure MIL will speak Korean to him when she's around.

I'm white (Irish and Italian) and DH is Filipino...we have a 3-year-old gorgeous boy who looks more like his daddy and a nearly 4 month old baby girl who looks a bit more like mommy. She still has blue eyes, too...we are wondering how long they will last! DS's eyes were that grayish blue when he was born but turned brown by the time he was a week old. DD's are now a bluish green. I have hazel green eyes with some brown around the pupil, and almost everyone in my family has blue eyes except for my mom. My DH and everyone in his family has brown. The funny thing about my eyes is that they were brown until I was like 20 years old and then they changed and got really green.

Kudos to you on being open to that. I am SO not moving to India. Luckily my DH is not interested in moving back there either.

DH is being deported. If I want to stay married I have no choice. I'm really excited though.

I have the same ethnic background, and our first son has fine brown hair like mine...I was hoping #2 would look more like DH...#2 has RED hair! I was very surprised to see the Irish genes shine through like that!

My mom is Japanese, with typical features, and my dad is a red-head with blue eyes and the typical red head complexion (pale skin, freckles, although he's gotten a bit ruddy as he's gotten older)... one of my sisters has auburn hair, that gets much lighter in the sun.

Wow, mommas. As someone who posted early on in this thread and hasn't checked it in a while, I'm a little astonished at all the talk about our kids' appearance. I'm seeing things like "exotic" and "aren't mixed babies gorgeous" and stuff coming from some of us same women who, if we heard a stranger talking about our kids this way, it could be awkward, off-putting, or even offensive. The children themselves may not like all the analysis either if they are old enough to understand. While it IS interesting how things like genetics play out, am I the only feeling this way? I hope to hear more from others about things like familial relationships, gender/ethnic/language issues, and identity.

Chinese Czecher...I have to admit, that one is hilarious!

I'm Caucasian (EuroMutt, many generations), married to a first generation South Korean American guy. : ) My son is light-skinned, dark hair, brown almond-shaped eyes. My daughter is medium-skinned, dark hair, brown almond-shaped eyes.

I'm VERY fair-skinned, and my hubby is medium-skin color.

I love this board. It's so great to see so many mixed marriages that are Asian married to non-Asian, like my hubby and I. And I even see some white woman married to Korean men here, too!
