This Friday check in on yourself. Remember all the great times that you had growing up. If you have no fond memories, then it is probably better not to dig up the past. I’m thinking about knowing my roots because I don’t want to get lost in completely consuming my husband’s culture and he doesn’t want that either. We always check in with each other to learn more about each other’s roots. When we have children we will pass on good traditions and memories from our past and also create our own that are unique to our interracial and biracial family. Honoring our roots helps to build a strong and confident foundation.
