I'm a first generation German American and Irish-Native American and married to an Indian. Eventually we plan on moving to India but for now we are in Oklahoma. We have a 3 year old daughter.

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.

Me, DH, DD1 (5/2009) and DD2 (10/2011).
I'm not crunchy. I'm evidence-based.

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!
