I love to see military couples. Andrew shares: This is my wife Jordan. Although we were friends from school, Jordan’s younger sister actually introduced us at church in August of 2012. We dated for a year and got married on September 21, 2014.
Meet Thomas and Nirmala Springer. They have such a cute little story and a cute little family! Thomas shares: My wife Nirmala and I found each other on Facebook. I am American and she is Indian. We followed her family’s customs and waited one year (courtship) then were engaged for one year then were married. Nirmala had a traditional Hindu wedding. We have been married almost 3 years and have a beautiful daughter.

My name is Kristi Thompson, I started dating my husband Terrell on October 22, 2004 — our senior year of high school. But I had a crush on him since the 6th grade. I knew it would be a problem with my parents but I did not think it would be as big of a problem as it turned out to be.
I was very careful with my newborns and did not take them out to church for at least 3 weeks. Still I could not imagine the horror this couple, suffered at the death of their beautiful baby girl. According to the Daily Mail, A family has been left devastated following the death of their newborn baby after she contracted a herpes virus from coming in contact with someone with a cold sore. Eloise Lampton, who was born healthily on November 1 via caesarean at Mackay Hospital in far north Queensland, died last week in the arms of her parents Sarah Pugh, 28, and Douglas Lampton, 35.The 24-day-old baby had been unknowingly infected with the herpes simplex virus while she was still in hospital in the days following her birth.
With one sister boasting fair skin with ginger hair and the other having darker skin with curls, you may find it hard to believe these two are twins.
Readers of BWDB, Beyond Black and White, Interracial Marriage and family have been treated to interviews of Lissette Gonzalez and her fabulous family. (See Color Blind & Valentines ). We were absolutely delighted in Lissette’s love for her husband Ali and children Kiara and Ulysses.
Just how does a black American matriarch set roots In New Zealand? American slavery left an unwitting legacy on most of us descended from Africans. The sad thing is that most of us don’t know our history and for those of us who can trace back our ancestry, we are stopped for the most part at the slave owner. For instance, I traced my family back seven generations. It wasn’t a surprise where my family got its name Murrell as it was the name of the man who purchased my progenitors. He came from Ireland back in 1799.
In light of a recent post, I wanted to share a refreshing story of Monica L. This beautiful, scholarly sister would not let negative messages from anyone or church affect her love, happiness and future. However Monica fully credits God for allowing her and her husband’s paths to cross. I too feel meting my husband was a result of Divine Intervention. Similarly, there were no negative messages from “the black church” that affected me or any decisions I made regarding who I could, should or would marry. Right before meeting my husband, I liked a white so called Christian who was a DBR. He really was damaged beyond repair.
In a perfect world, interracial marriages and relationships would be happily accepted. Since we are not in a perfect world (far from it) some people have to deal with unaccepting in-laws, siblings and people who they thought were friends. How does his family feel about your relationship to date, court, love or marry a black woman? We always hear about how white (and other non black) families are reluctant to accept a black daughter in law but what about black families? Was your family accepting of your choice to marry a non black male? I believe that black people tend to me more accepting but…
Meet Captain Nenh and Mrs. Ladi Trenh. I came by their wedding video uploaded by Ladi’s cousin Miguel Asua of Asua Light LLC. So, I set out on a search to find this couple. Miguel was nice enough to put me in touch with this beautiful bride. I contacted Ladi and she was so pleasant. Of course she agreed to an interview. What has to be noted is that Ladi is a natural beauty who wears little to no make up and is comfortable as she is. Her husband Nenh is obviously very much in love with the beautiful woman Ladi is inside and out. Ladi demonstrates that we can come as we are and attract, quality, marriage minded men who will love, honor, and protect us as well as provide for our families. Ladi was so forthcoming in sharing her story and pictures of her beautiful little family. She leads a simple, yet inspiring life as wife and mother. Thanks Ladi!
This ad circulated from an organization called Chicks In Crisis on Facebook last week and must have given all the IR couples that saw it something to think about. It was looking for an interracial (biracial black/white) family for biracial twin girls soon to be born. I definitely considered if there was anyway for my husband and I to respond but we didn’t qualify for many reasons one of which was the family had to already have been home study approved. The response appeared to be overwhelming as there are obviously many loving couples ready to provide a happy home for a baby. The good news is that there are four families being considered and I am sure any one of them would be great parents and trust that all will work out well.
White DBRs Are In Great Supply
Black women who advocate for other black women to expand their dating pools to include all races are often accused of bashing black men; as some are quick to apply the DBR (damaged beyond repair) label to them. No one claims that all black men are dbrs. That would be unfair as there are some great black men out there. On the other hand, if the shoe fits……
When I first introduced you all to Lissette Gonzalez five years ago, her interview got the most responses ever. People were drawn to Lissette’s (Lisy or Lady Elle) outgoing, loving and crazy personality and the heart binding super love she and her husband share with each other.
Not only was Centralia, Illinois native Marcella (Marcy) Ng the first black woman military pilot (Army) in 1979; but she and husband Dennis were also Blasian trailblazers. Mrs. Ng shared with me that she found all the swirling and blasian terms interesting because she and her husband have been together 33 plus years.
Yes, he’s mine!
Many of us with biracial children have or will experience an “Is that your baby?” moment. Sometimes it can be funny in the comical or ironic sense and sometimes it can be outright rude. One evening I went to the grocery store, got my shopping done and headed out to my car with a cart full of goodies to be consumed over the next couple of weeks.
