I'm white, wife's Korean, and we were warned by a few people that our children would hate us, that they would have a very hard time growing up and that they would end up with "issues".
Our daughter is eleven now, and she's very intelligent, has a wonderful sense of humor, is bi-lingual and all her teachers love her, she has grandparents on both sides that adore her and spoil her rotten, and people always comment on how beautiful she is.
Man, how cruel we were, bringing her into the world in this environment!
Incidentally, she asked what she should say she is to anyone who asks: "What are you?"
I told her to look them in the eye and say "American".
