There are a couple interesting things about her fascination with Asian people...
1. Don and I haven't really placed much emphasis on her being Chinese or from China. While we are not ashamed of the fact that she is Chinese, it just hasn't been a big topic of discussion. A lot of it is because she's only two. When we look at Lindy, we just see our daughter not our Chinese daughter. We know it will definitely come up more in the future, though, and we'll handle the various issues as they come.
2. There isn't a huge Asian population where we live. Up until recently, the only Asian friends she's had have been pictures on blogs and the refrigerator.
So, while I don't know where she learned to be so in tune with Asians, it is there. Somehow, I think it must be kind of important to her.
Recently, Lindy was blessed to meet these two little beauties, Libby(left) and Maliah(right).
When she talks about her new friends "Wibby" and "Mawiah," she makes sure to point out they are Chinese.
These three are very active, very social, and funny little spitfires!
