Welcome to the World Ridley Merritt

We are sometimes asked what the most difficult part of living in China is.  Is it the daily struggle of communicating in a second language?  The deep cultural contrasts? Being stared at everywhere we go?  The absence of thick, juicy ribeye steaks smothered in mushrooms and onions with a baked potato on the side soaked in butter and sour cream . . . what were we talking about?
Oh yeah, the tough parts.  No.  None of these hold a candle to missing out on the special days like today when my beautiful niece Shandi and her stud of a husband Stephen said hello to their amazing 8 pound 8 ounce bundle of love, Ridley.  Welcome to the world little man.  Love you more than steak (you too mom and dad).
