Whasian. It’s a loving term coined by me for my children. I am proud of my children, my heritage and the fact that these beauties are “mixed” nationalities. (I always have a soft spot for children of mixed heritage.) Not sure exactly where the term came from, but I know I would get asked all the time about Daddy’s heritage. It’s a way that I can make sure everyone knows that my kids are beautifully made…mixed.
I took the word “White” for the Daddy side of the heritage (I know…it’s not proper. I hate using the word white to describe people. But this blended the best with the other part). Then I blended it with the word “Asian.” So you get Wh-Asian. Which then became Whasian. I call my kids Whasians all the time. It became the loving name for my beautifully mixed kids.
So…if you see me refer to my Whasians in future posts…you’ll know why.
