The Americanization of Emily

Since reuniting with my family in the USA I’ve been fortunate to witness the unfolding of a process of transformation. The first steps in my daughter becoming not just a United States citizen of birth, but an American of mind. I’ve also been lucky to learn about the changes she is experiencing through the closer relationship we now have, due in part to the common bond we now share in being American. I’ve been posting here, on my blog and within my personal journal from time to time about experiences Emily shares with me, as well as my own observations along the way. I’ve decided to collect these notes into a new page on my website. A journal-like chronology of what happens along the way, as my daughter grows from a Japanese teen into a Japanese-American adult.
