^^^ I have to agree with that. In the end, you have no hold over your children's choices. Your girls will decide for themselves what is important for them.

I wonder if any of you have heard of the Disney channel show called Jake Long: American Dragon? If I'm not mistaken, he's also biracial; his mom is asian and his dad looks to be white.

People ask me this question all the time about DS. He is biracial, but I don't think that's the reason why they ask. I am quite a young mother. People will ask me if he's mine, and then they'd look...
