Back in my mid-20's I dated a girl of Korean heritage who was adopted as an infant by a white American couple who couldn't have kids of their own.
She was certainly "Americanized"...whatever that might mean...but she was one of the best people I ever knew. I lost her to my job and the fact that I was young, pretty, and couldn't keep my pants zipped up back then.
I wouldn't trade my wife and daughter for ANYTHING...but I can tell you Patty would have made a great wife had I not been too young and stupid to see it then.
So...I am not a good judge on this one.
