This is Minna, one of my dearest childhood friends.
I have known Minna since the 2nd grade when
she came to school with a note on her jacket
saying that she came from Taiwan and didn't speak English.
Fast forward to 2010.
Here is Minna's new daughter Jasmine from Taiwan,
who was adopted by Minna and her husband Joe
a month ago. Jasmine is 5 and is learning English,
just like her mom did almost 40 years ago.
Isn't she beautiful? I love this story.
