Seven years ago, he made our family complete. He came along and was the missing puzzle piece. In mandarin, the word for 'good', 'happy', 'positive' is made up of two characters : the character for girl followed with the character for boy. When something is good, it encompasses this notion of wholeness. Our son is sensitive, open hearted and kind. His big heart is a part of him that we favor, even though he gets hurt by others sometimes. We are raising him to be someone who not only respects others, but also himself. His spark is bright and a joy to watch develop.
