My niece joined the family on July 12th, 2010. This special young lady's mother is my younger sister, which in classic Chinese culture makes me her Jiu Jiu (舅舅) -- thus the title of this blog. Here I intend to semi-regularly post reflections, thoughts, stories, and assorted whathaveyous pertaining to our trip to China, adoption in general, and (mostly) watching my niece grow up. Since the web is a very public place, I will attempt to maintain my family's privacy while telling the story... but I invite you to follow the blog and come along for the adventure!

We're Hurting with Them

We lived just outside Brussels in the early 1980s.

We flew in & out of Zaventem airport, and drove past it often.

I had several friends who lived in the Schaarbeek/Schaerbeek neighborhood.

We used or passed through the Maalbeek/Maelbeek and Schuman stations many times.

Watching the BBC reports, I think I recognize the street where the follow-up raids took place; if I'm right, it's just one block over from where one of my best friends lived.

We're hurting with you, Brussels.
