Obadiah is the first person Amreitha has met that looks like her. That's because he's the first biological family she's ever met.
We looked forward to this moment for years. Cried with anticipation as his arrival drew closer.
Then we saw him and he didn't look like us. He looked like our dear friend Linda Ho.
Our tears of anticipation turned into tears of confusion.
Amreitha's first biological look a like didn't look like her, but a Vietnamese/Chinese/Khmer woman. What strange betrayal. Not sure how to deal with this.
Do you think our baby looks like us? What parts belong to Amreitha? What belongs to me? What belongs to Linda Ho?
