Did anyone notice? I did. Congratulations MDC!!!::
I saw from before this started how much this meant to many families. I posted some in the beginning and I suppose I am a lurker most of the time now. But given how hard people pushed to have this forum and what it means to have it, I could not resist but to celebrate the milestone.
I am so happy to see that parents have a place to come share many of their very real events that many without multicultural experiences might readily dismiss. That they have a place to exchange helpful hints and antidotes about life that are unique to multicultural families.
So congrats on having a place that doesn't dismiss or mock the complexities of the multicultural family unit. (Please note I am not implying that any place on MDC would do that). But I believe there is an adding safety net here. It's just so nice to see people respecting the complexities of all races and cultures and it's wonderful to have a place that allows us to acknowledge the struggles that let our families reach this point.

Thank you for posting this, Yinsum! I tend to lurk, also, but it is so nice to have one place on the internet where sweeping generalizations and judgments based on stereotypes aren't the norm.

Thanks for creating this space just for us, Yinsum :

It's nice to be part of a virtual community where people face similar issues.
