Greetings!

We designed this site in order to keep in touch with friends and family who are far away and in order to communicate with other adoptive families from around the world.

When we first started researching this wonderful way to become a family we read everything we could get our hands on. Even though there are a lot of great books out there, nothing was as informative or touching as the blogs we found by adoptees, biological parents, and adoptive families. So we are writing this blog now in hopes of returning the favor. We hope that if you are dear to us you will enjoy keeping up with our adventures. If you are someone out there involved in a part of the adoption triad we hope you will find information and comfort here and provide us with some of your own!

If you would like to get in touch with us we can be reached at: becomingafamily@gmail.com
Feel free to stop by anytime. We're happy to share our family story.

Take care,
Brian and Rosemary

Shyaporn


Brian and I have recently become interested in the hilarious, bizarre and sometimes heartwarming world of vlogs. There are a lot of interesting people out there who are putting together miniature films, as it were, and sharing them with the world. I'm late to this trend, of course, but it's an entire tiny cosmos that revolves around your favorite "directors" most recent creation, how well designed it is and what it has to say. My abilities don't reach that level but I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm happy to lurk there... for hours. Yes, I'm a nerd.

So anyway, I am a new fan of Shyaporn Theerakulstit, who is a super cute Thai-American guy living right here in NYC. His vlogs are funny, odd, and intelligent. I love what he has to say about race in America (when he talks about that subject) and, best of all, I love his ridiculous, silly spoofs on everything from Blockbuster films to roommates. Please enjoy this interesting and funny vlog about media representation of Asians. You can scroll to the bottom to turn my music off.

Oh, my, that is funny and also pathetic if you think how the media portrays all Asian actors! I never even heard of these vlogs so you are way ahead of me, Roses!
