Below is page 12 of my: “Memoir: Foolishly Brave Unconditionally Blessed, From a Chinese Girl to American Working Mother”.
(Continued from page 11)
I was left “alone” with my “new” parents and “new” younger brother. I had only met my parents twice before when they visited me in the farming village, and I’d never met my younger brother before.
There were many differences between my parents’ apartment and my grandparents’ house. My parents’ apartment was in a row of flat, connected apartments. It was basically a studio without a bathroom. My grandparents’ house had hazy plastic film covered windows while my parents’ apartment had windows of transparent glass. My grandparents’ house had a dirt floor, while my parent’s apartment was concrete. At night, my grandparents used a small oil lamp, while my parents had two “electric lanterns”, which were actually fluorescent lights. The light was much brighter than the small oil lamp. On the wall of my parent’s living room, there were pictures of Chairman Mao and Chairman Hua next to each other.
Both of my parents had full-time jobs. Typical of China in the 1970s and 80s, both of my parents worked full time, six days a week. My father worked for the railroad, and would ride a bike to work every day. My mother was employed as a retail store salesperson and later became a manager in the store. Their total wages were about fifty RenMinBi (about US $9) per month in the 1970s.
My brother is two years younger than me. He was about four years old at that time. He wore a green Liberation Army hat with a shining red metal star on the front. He looked very cute and fashionable, since that’s what the cool boys wore at the time.

“It is a good book. Hard to put down.”– Jerry
“Loved your book so much I’m starting to read it for the second time! “ –Barbara
“I really enjoyed your memoir as it is well written and has a lot of personal insights incl. cultural and religious ones. I experienced how much your parents did for you even they have only little wealth and the way you support them! That is completely different to many people in Germany – they ask for money from the government first.” -–a reader and friend in Germany
“I just read chapter 6 today, very good. Yes, it takes love and patience to make an interracial relationship work. Especially from different cultures. But that is what Jesus teaches us right? Love and patience.”—a reader in USA
