As a young girl, I promised myself that one day I would make you proud. I hope I’ve accomplished that, and I’m sorry that I haven’t been the perfect daughter. I should have put in more of an effort to keep in touch with you, and I know it’s been a while since I’ve written, but I promise to be get more involved in our family. I regret the harsh words I said to you that day, and I wish I could take them back. We may not always get along, but I’ll always love you. All I wanted was for you to understand that while I was growing up, it was hard for me to feel “Asian” and accepted by our Chinese relatives.
