Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.

Oliver is giving his, um, can’t tell, so I will go with parent, a tattoo.
I am really glad my mommy and daddy gave me the name Mia.
First, that is what everybody calls me. He he he.
Second, it’s really easy to write.

“Ollie, get the gun.”
“Got ink in there?”
“Okay. Write your name right here below Gasoline.”

“Gasoline. That’s my 3rd wife. She’s your big sister’s mommy.”
“Daddy. Which big sister?”
