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.

Hi, I am Mia Mei and I am the voice and inspiration to this blog… sorta.

This is my first post.

I have it in me to change the world … for the better, too.

I mean, isn’t the world a better place when there are more smiles and laughter and playfulness in it? Sure, it is! Or at least that’s what I am told.

And that’s what I do best – giggle, laugh, play, jump, run, skip, fall down, get up, hold hands, cry, drink, eat, get dirty (yeah, that kind of dirty, too), get cleaned up, hug, get hugged, kiss, get kissed, eat candy, share, roll, bounce, watch veggies, eat veggies, sing (Beeeeannn!), pray, get picked up, get put down, get picked up again, then down again, drop stuff, pick it up, hold too much at one time but keep trying to get more, say things nobody can understand but keep trying till I get it right, love my mommie, love my daddy, love my brothers and my teachers and my friends and people I haven’t even met yet because loving seems like lots of fun not to mention I get loved back and and and…wait, I gotta go potty.

If everyone did these things and did them more often, I hear the world would be a better place.

And I am going to do my part.

Wanna help? Wanna play?

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