If you don’t know by now, both my sister, Cari (pronounced Carrie), and I are adopted from China. Generally the first question I am asked when I tell someone this is “Are you related, you know biologically?” The answer is no. And just like I call my adoptive parents my parents, I refer to my adoptive sister as my sister. We were adopted from two different provinces in China. I was adopted from the Jiangxi province, where my sister was adopted from the Jiangsu province. Many assume that since we are both Asian we must be biologically related. Some people have even thought we were twins! And then asked if my sister was the oldest. Rude. I’m three years older.
