Worldwide family

I have a new nephew! (A new n'ew?) Isn't he cute?

My brother and sister-in-law adopted a boy from Guatemala and brought him home just this week. They are welcoming him into their family, which includes my niece from China.

I have such an international family!

I also have a sister whose father was Mexican (from my mother's first marriage -- she was swayed by the sexy Latino accent!) and a cousin whose mother is from Vietnam.

Do you have an international family too?

What a little cutie. Congratulations.

I was born in Haiti and my grandpa was Arab, and my husband is Italian and Polish. My grandma was German and French. I guess my kids are the UN.

Wow how exciting!! Guatemela!! Are you sure your family isn't related to Bragelina. They are some cute and LUCKY KIDs! Oh well, my husband is british, I got Canadian (well not too international LOL), Chinese, Puerto Rican (she thinks J-Lo is ugly) in the family.

Gasp! What a cutie! Love that hair!

My sister married a man from Guadalajara, so she and her three children speak English and Spanish and are a lovely coffee color.

My SIL married a man from Dublin, so they all speak English and Irish and are very pale skinned.

Mine is just the boring American family. ;-)

He's sweet! Congrats to your family.

My family is not so international. My dad came here from England in his early twenties. Other than that, we're all Canadian.

I don't, but I married a half Indian man. Does that count?

He's adorable! Congratulations on the new addition!

Aww! He is so cute...I LOVE the idea of adopting kids from other countries (other than it's kinda expensive)...but we just may be looking into that someday yet. :)

Congratulations! How exciting!

I do not have an international family. We're boring.

Awww.. what a little cutie pie! As for international relatives, it probably doesn't count, but I'm American (half Native Alaskan) and my husband's family are from India, which is why my son has THE best complexion in the whole world. Love my mixed race baby (with another one to come!)

What a cutie...look at that hair!!
My twin sister married a Mexican man, and they have the most beautiful mixed children! I used to tease her before I got married and would ask her if I could borrow her husband to have some kids if I never got married. Haha...of course, she said no!!

How cool! I'd love to adopt from another country, though.

However, my sil, the missionary to MX, is going to have her baby there in January. So, she (the baby) will have dual citizenship! Cool, huh?

What a little doll! He looks so cuddly.

(Must. Suppress. Baby. Lust. Now.)

I don't have an international family.

Do ex-boyfriends count?! (Let's just say I, too, love that Latino accent.)

How exciting! My family, however, is isn't quite as...um...international.
