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.



Yesterday I wrote about Perry Chen, a Chinese-American, who co-founded Kickstarter.

His idea has helped a lot of people launch their ideas.

Here is one called Chineasy – “A bright and engaging illustrated methodology for learning Chinese through fun and whimsical illustrations.”

These guys (Chineasy) had a goal of raising 75,000 pounds and ended up raising 197,000 pounds. I don’t even know how much that is! (Ed. $307,000+)

Here is their Kickstarter details abt Chineasy.

Wow! That’s a lot of trips to Disneyland.

This inspires me a lot.

I don’t know what I want to do with my life. I mean I am only 5-year old and I know that there are 15-, 25-, 35-, 45- and 55-year olds who don’t know what do to or even what they did with their lives.

But it seems to me that I might be able to do anything I want if I just try hard enough and connect with the right people.

Interesting … interesting…

In the meantime, I will go to the park and play, and go to school and learn, and ask my daddy questions and get answers, and try things and make mistakes, and try other things and succeed and put all these experiences down here in my blog and turn them into a book or two or three or four.

Kickstarter … has kickstarted my thinking.

What would you like to do with your life if you had people backing you?

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
