I am super-excited about today’s Spotlight, for bunches of reasons!
1) I get to introduce my brother and his family! I buttered them up while we were at the beach this summer and they graciously let me interview them.
3) We’ve featured lots of amazing mixed race and multicultural families in the Spotlight, but we haven’t gotten very diverse in family constellation, featuring mainly married couples with little ones at home. Today we shake it up a bit. And we like variety here!
Nathan: Our nuclear family is Sylvia, Keana, and me. Sylvia is Puerto Rican and I’m white. My family is kind of dispersed all over the United States. Sylvia’s mom and sisters live the closest – her mother and one sister live together a few blocks away from us in the Bronx – and they have helped out the most with Keana because they’re so close by.
If your family is interested in participating in a future Spotlight, I’d love to hear from you!
