94: Submitted by Monique V. (New Jersey)
I found your a link to this blog on Fierce & Nerdy.Com. I scanned through the picture which made me so very happy and moved me to want to share some photos of my own family.
My husband, Brian Viehland, and I will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in January 2010. I am African American and he is Caucasian. My ancestry can be traced back to West African and his from Germany. A little over 19 months ago, I gave birth to a son, Sekou William. He is a beautiful, smart, funny little boy who we love very much. Contrary to what Keith Bardwell may think, I am confident that my son will grow up feeling a deep sense of love and belonging. And the only concern I have for his future, is that he will have to deal with people like Keith Bardwell. But I can guarantee that he will be as prepared as we can possibly make him.
I want to thank you for creating this wonderful testament to family - no matter what combination it comes in - and share recent photos recent of my interracial family.
Thanks so much for creating this blog!
