She arrived yesterday at Chicago's international airport carried by a big, noisy metal stork...

Her name is Dora, and she was born in China fifteen months ago. I wonder how you say "eccentric auntie" in Cantonese

Congratulations! Oct 19, 2003

I also have a Chinese niece, who arrived in Brussels four years ago now, when she was two. Hannah is now 6, and living in England not too far from me with her mother (my sister). She is quite frighteningly clever and always happy. What joy children bring xith them!

Take A Child By The .. Oct 20, 2003

Take A Child By The ..
Take a child by the hand,
and show him the way,
Lead a child each morning,
into a beautiful day.
Take a child by the mind,
and give him the strength,
To fight every challenge,
and go to great lengths.
Take a child by the soul,
and let God be known,
It is by his mighty grace,
that so big they have grown.
Take a child by his sight,
and show him wonders galore,
Teach him curiosity,
and the need to explore.
Take a child by his smile,
so beautiful and sweet,
And tell him of all,
the friends he will meet.
Take a child by his wonder,
of the life all around,
Let him savor each flavor,
and hear each new sound.
Take a child by his dreams,
and say it's all-right,
To follow those dreams,
as far as he might.
Take a child by the heart,
and teach them to love,
For there is no greater gift,
from our creator above,
And after your child has grown,
and alone they now stand,
Watch and enjoy as they take,
their children by the hand.

-Ty Krotzer 5/14/98

Good luck with your niece
