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 about Sports

Zhang Yimou is in charge of the 2008 Beijing Games opening and closing ceremonies.

Ceremonies such as those that go on before and after Olympic games need more talent and creativity than one person can provide.

Steven Spielberg had already been tapped by Zhang…now Ang Lee is on his team.

Ang Lee was proclaimed “the pride of Chinese people all over the world” when he won an Oscar for his “Brokeback Mountain,” a movie that never made it through censorship for mainland release.

The movie did, however, get released in Taiwan, Lee’s birthplace.

Question: What’s an American doing on the Chinese committee for these games?

Question: What if Lee oversteps the censorship boundaries? Will the opening and closing ceremonies not be seen on the mainland?

I, for one, am totally excited about the ceremonies for these games and expect them to be spectacular. China does know how to put on a show.

What do you think?

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