Celebrating Your Child’s Heritage

As hina matsuri day approaches, I am beginning to prepare things around my house to celebrate this annual Japanese holiday. I am very excited to honor my daughter’s heritage in this way and look forward to the days when she is old enough to share her opinion on things as well as enjoy the actual day of celebration. Just like Christmas and her birthday, she is still to young to understand what is going on. As I have been doing research and learning the traditional ways of celebrating hina matsuri day I came across many helpful articles of ways to incorporate your child’s heritage into your life, should you choose to. I know there is much debate on this topic, so this post may not be helpful to everyone, but for those of you who would like to celebrate certain holidays and customs that are a part of your child’s birth culture, than perhaps you may find Adoptive Families Magazine articles on celebrating your child\’s heritage helpful. If you have any additional suggestions or thoughts to share please do!
