Olympics instill pride in adoptees

Found this article while searching for adoptees in the Olympics.  It’s a very short story on Chinese adoptees, their families and their views of the Olympics.  I agree with the one parent who was careful in stating that while watching the Olympics in Beijing with her children was enlightening it isn’t necessarily something she can claim as helping them learn their culture.  Which I think is a sentiment widely shared by several of the other parents in this article.  I agree.  It’s enlightening, but to say you are teaching your children Chinese culture by allowing them to stay up late and watch the Olympics is a bit of a stretch for me.  But again it’s nice that these adoptees have someone to look up to in Corrie Lothrop.  GS
