We love our son, Sahn! 

Hyeyoung Lee — Chicago, IL

I came to the U.S. 10 years ago as an international student. I met my husband at the school where I studied. We got married in 2009 and had our new addition on March 7th, 2013. This photo was taken last week at the retreat center, Rochester, IN. Our son’s name is Sahn which means mountain in Korean. Many Asian people mentioned that Sahn looks like American (whatever that means), and many of my American friends said that he looks like an Asian baby. I think my son has to deal with this in his life being questioned by many people where he belongs to. Raising a bi-cultural/racial child will be an interesting for us as we also have to face this kind of questions. Someday we will have conversation with Sahn what it means to be both Korean and American.
