Special is better than perfect.

While having breakfast yesterday, dad told me about something that he read on the web. Dad ordered his favourite curry noodle and I ordered my clear soup with fried tiny fishes and some green veggie pork noodle. He got his order before mine. And since he usually eats faster than me, he was already almost done eating when I started on mine. That was good because he didn’t have to tell me things with his mouth full of noodles... he he

An American lady was writing about how she went about adopting a Chinese baby girl from China. She adopted a few months old baby girl with cleft lip from an orphanage. Dad said the baby was probably abandoned by her own parents because of that. This lady already has her own children and she wasn’t like very rich or has plenty of money to spare. She said that she wanted to give the baby girl a home and bring her up with love and maybe later when the little girl is older, she will find the money to get her cleft lip done. Isn’t she like so so so kind? Is not like she has to! But, she just felt that she has to.

Dad said that there are many ordinary people in the world who has a good heart; we just don’t hear about them that much, that’s all. Babies and children are not always going to be perfect, but when they are brought up well, they will be special.

Special is better than perfect, I think... he he.

There's one American couple who adopted a Chinese baby girl from China too. Four years later, they discovered her talent and decided to groom her. Few years later (I donno her exact age now), this little charming girl participated in American Got Talent! When she got into the final round, her parents cried. Sweet isn't it?

She really has the talent TO BEND HER BODY!!!!!!!! Gosh. Twist here and there. And I freaked out while watching!! Hope she can beat the rest of the contestants though. :S

Totally agree!

I have American colleagues who adopted a Chinese girl too and they are just blown away each time she comes home with A+ marks at school.

She's quite a chatty, cheeky character too who can't stop telling knock-knock jokes one after another!
