I’ve been waiting all year for this installment of WTRW… We’re a bi-racial, adoptive, globally-minded family aiming to instill pride in our varied heritage. We incorporate traditions, customs, and celebrations from all corners of the earth into our family framework — Chinese culture certainly not the least of them. As proud mom to a handsome Chinese son, obviously in our home all things China are sacred, special, and set apart.
A good portion of our globe-trotting happens by way of books, as our budget and schedule don’t always permit the in-person, foot-on-the-ground adventuring we crave. (See my posts about France, Africa, Japan, Italy, Ireland, & Mexico.) Our home library is laden with China-themed lit, for the sake of both my Chinese-born son and my US-born daughters.
