Big Eyes


When we were in China adopting Choe, we were stopped by a lot of Chinese people who remarked about how big Chloe's eyes were. Little did we know at the time, but now when we look at those photos, we can see that she was scared. Nevertheless, her eyes are a bit rounder than the average Chinese eye and we still hear remarks about Chloe's "big eyes".

Earlier this evening, Chloe went upstairs to her room to put on her pajamas. She likes to do this at least an hour before bed, often even before her bath. Tonight I noticed that she was dressing in the dark and I remembered that Chloe is afraid of the dark. I turned the light on and said, "Chloe, what are you doing dressing in the dark?" She replied, "It's OK Mom. I have BIG EYES!" Then she proceeded to turn the light back off.

That's so funny! You never know what they are thinking. I showed Olivia's picture to my neighbor who is from China. The first thing she said was "she has big eyes"!

That is funny. Glenys has the big eyes and double lids as well. We were stopped a lot too.

I think our daughter has big eyes too. Once we came home with her, we used to think she didn't look Chinese at all because of her eyes. Now we laugh at how silly we must have sounded because she DEFINTELY looks Chinese! Your daughter is beautiful!
