Secrets of a non-Danish mom

As this new year begins, let’s take a moment to think about all the people for whom this will be their very first year, all the Idas and Emils and Aasmas and Szymons who will be born this year. If trends continue, there will be more than 61,000 newborn Danes joining us. And according to Denmark’s Statistik, 22% of children born here will have a mother who is not ethnic Danish. That’s something I know a little about, being a non-Danish mother myself.
