Baby Anklet Monitor

This is weird.

Can people really do this if they have enough money?

Buy a mommy?

Ask them to have kids? Huh?! How does that work?

They want green cards? I have green crayons.

And they will pay enough money to buy a house? $120,000 – $300,000. (Ed. Some places you can still buy a house for that, but not in Silicon Valley.)

This puzzles me.

Sure there’s a gate mommies they are called. (Ed. Surrogate mommy).

Chinese people who have lots and lots of money will give money and mommies will have babies. And if their babies are born in the US they can give their mommies green cards after 21 years.

Wow, that’s a long time to wait.

Hello!? I have some crayons.

I think I need to have a talk with my mommy about how babies are born and how people can pay money for babies to be born.

I have a piggy bank. I wonder how many babies I can buy.

But then … I am saving up for Disney World.

Do I want a new baby or do I want a new princess doll.

Some decisions are too hard for little girls.

Mommy, can you tell me how we get babies? How much money they cost?

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