I have another cultural awakening moment as Mr. Poon and I talk about the kiddo. I say that I hope Herm looks adorable and Asian! Mr. P says he hopes the child looks white, so his/her life will be easier.
Sadly, it’s so easy for me to be apathetic and absent-minded about these things sometimes, as a Caucasian person. Being married and being a part of Epic Movement has allowed me to change a lot, and engage more with the realities that are present for so many others. Adding a hapa baby to the mix will certainly move both Jason and me further down the path in how we relate to ethnicity and culture.
