Chinawistful Hi, my name is Kate! I am passionate about different cultures, make people happy, and adoption.

Red Thread Broken "This blog includes personal questions, reflections, upcoming adoptee events, literature reviews and responses to recent adoptee media, as well as the ideas of what it means to be Chinese American. This blog presents a more holistic view of international adoption as opposed to the "Hallmarkization" as portrayed in the media."

Stories from an Adoptee I started my blog in October 2015. I want to create more awareness about adoption. I would like to give people the full impression about being adopted. Not only negative effects but also the positive ones. Adoption is for me a way of living. It made me for who I am. My adoption gave me a second life but gives me also a lot of pain. Therefore these stories are about lost, loss, love and friendship. These themes are universal and I hope other people can relate to my stories too. I am a very creative person and therefore it's an artistic blog I love to paint and write so a lot of items are made by me. If I see something else very inspiring I also put it on my blog. My blog tells stories about how I deal with adoption and how it inspires me in life. Love, the Happy Panda!
We Are Not China Dolls A Blog for Asian Adoptees. "Clearing ignorance and confronting racism, as well as transnationalism: Our purpose is to provide a place for adoptees and people to ask questions concerning adoption in Asia."
