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.
—Talking to Animals—
After Mia picked up the arrow from the flower bed she turned to walk back to her curly-haired red-headed friend.
But what she saw was a river with beautiful tall trees and an even larger blanket of wild flowers. Mia felt she was a flower standing in the largest flower bed in the world.
Mia saw a little girl with long black hair sitting among some animals and talking to them!
“Hello, bear cub. Good day, little faun. Good morning, my little stinky friend. How are you, my deer.”
The little girl and Mia visited for a long time and Mia, too, learned how to talk to animals, too!
“Chirp chirp, buzz buzz, growl, bark, woof, meow ….” Mia learned many animal languages!
Mia’s new friend talked of her dream for animals to be loved by all and for the world to live peacefully and in harmony.
Mia and her new friend decided to take a ride in the canoe. The water grew rougher and rougher as they got closer and closer to a waterfall.
The canoe flew over the side of the waterfall. And Mia screamed as they fell down.
Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
