Renee and I have been in China now for 7 years, and I have been in and out of China for nearly 14 years. You would think we know all there is to know about Chinese culture, well you would be wrong!
There is one thing that we have learned since we have been back with our 3rd child, and it always amazes us!
When it was just Tegan and Preston, we would get comments all the time, about our boys. That happens to foreigners in China, our kids stand out (as do we) and people comment on that. We have been fortunate in that the comments are not mean spirited, but curious; usually doing with race and color within our family
Yet, when we came back in August, its as if the color issue disappeared. No longer do we hear questions and comments about that, the comments are on that unbelievable face that we have 3 kids! Somehow the idea of a biracial family is normal, but 3 kids are not.
Chinese culture, we love it though it always surprises us!
