My Husband is Asian?!

I always forget that my husband does not have white skin. He is just Michael. I see him, but I don't distinguish that we were born in different countries. Until 45 years ago, we would not have been able to get married! Isn't that crazy?! I have had some really nasty things said to me about my interracial marriage and my child. All of it is too vulgar to repeat. I just do not understand why it is such a big deal to people. What does it matter that our skin color is different? He is a great husband and father, a Sunday School teacher, a youth group leader, a hard and honest worker, and an all around geek.

10% of all marriages in the US are interracial or interethnic, a 28% jump since 2000. (US census)
Interracial marriages have doubled since 1980.
In 1967, the Supreme Court declared anti-miscegenation laws unconstitutional.

God made people with darker skin too! :D

One of my favorite times of the year!

It's finally here! The season for fresh produce, and I mean FRESH! Right off the farm fresh! It's pretty much one of my favorite things. I LOVE LOVE LOVE going to buy local produce from the farmer's market. Not only that, but it is also the perfect drive-in weather. :) We are going to see Pirates:Band of Misfits and The Avengers tonight. 

In other news, my friends are so close to finishing the adoption process with a region in Russia. Check out their blog over here: www.wearespeechless.com. This is one amazing story filled with God's miracles. These are wonderful people deserving to have their story shared with you. :) I love them so much.
