Baby Rose received her one month old “Hmong Blessing” from her grandpa Xiong. You’ll have to forgive my ignorance if I explain this poorly, but basically when a baby turns one month old, it’s traditional to give the baby a blessing. Strings are waved over the baby’s hand to sweep away bad luck and sickness, etc. then the strings are waved over her upward facing hand so she can catch the blessings being given to her. Then people give gifts to the baby. It’s a way to welcome the baby to the family and thank the spirits that brought her to us. #hmong  #hmonggirl  #hmongbaby  #hmongculture  #halfhmong  #halfhmonghalfwhite  #alllove  #hmongblessing  #hmongblessingstring  #blessed  #love  #family  #familyisforever
