Introduction to the Lee Family - One of my Asian Families
The Lee Family
Meet the Lee family. Chang, the husband is an architect, who works for OTJ Architects in Washington, D.C. Sunni, his wife, is a realtor with Coldwell Banker. Amaya (13mos) and Ming (3yrs) are their two daughters. Chang and Sunni have only been married for 4 years. They are both heavily involved with the community. Chang teaches Tae Kwon Do at the neighborhood gym (which David Anderson happens to own). Sunni volunteers every chance she gets. She has a pretty flexible schedule as a realtor. She loves her job, but since getting married and having kids, she has had to strike a better balance between work and home. Working 13 hrs days, 6 days a week is not conducive to fostering a happy home. Chang has given her the option not to work outside the home, but she loves having a little independence. Amaya and Ming have been a great addition to the family. They have both softened up their dad, somewhat. Prior to their arrival, Chang was a very serious, no-nonsense fellow. Since becoming a dad, he has done a 180 degree shift, smiling more often and not taking everything so serious.
