Wow, I can't believe that this folder finally exists!
Anyway, I'm mags, my DH and I are a pan-asian family. I am taiwanese american, born and raised in america. My DH is korean american, born in south korea, but his family came to the US when he was in elementary school. He is pretty much americanized, but he has the advantage of having the ability to speak korean, fluent enough to get by, while speaking perfect english as well. I on the other hand can understand some mandarin and taiwanese, but I can't really speak well at all, I have a horrible american accent!
It may surprise many of you that although my DH and I are both asian american, we have dealt with a good deal of cultural issues regarding our parents. In many ways, it's like dealing with three cultures, korean, taiwanese and american, we often feel like we are caught in the middle. We would like to expose our children to both korean and taiwanese culture, but my DH and I struggle with this, b/c both of us have had watered down exposure to our own cultural heritage while growing up, "american." We try out best, but we presently live in an area with very little diversity, basically we ARE the diversity! So, while we can expose the kids to cultural things with books and by talking about it, it is not easy for seek out cultural activities and other asian american kids for our kids to hang out with.
