Family road trip

Last week we took a trip to Portland for some shopping, then on to Kingston, New York to attend my aunt and uncle's 50th anniversary party. We had a fun time, and it was great visiting with family.

Zhang Empresses

"Produced Feb 2007
Growing up surrounded by blond, blue-eyed children in Sweden, Chinese adoptees Alice, Mimmi, Nanna and Linnéa always felt different. The girls were adopted on the same day from the same orphanage but -- having moved abroad as babies -- they don't speak Mandarin and have no concept of their native country. Now ten years old, they are returning to China for the first time. What will they make of their homeland? A moving look at identity."Zhang Empresses
