New Story in The New York Times Chinese

At the age of 65, my grandma left her job as a surgeon in the #1
hospital in China to come to the U.S. with barely any knowledge of
English to raise me me while my parents finished grad school.
Re-starting from scratch as a gas station cashier/ dim sum restaurant
cart pusher, she built a new career using a synthesis of Western
medical theory and traditional Chinese medicine to help couples who
couldn’t conceive. Twenty years and ~300 successful births later (and
a number of humorous cross-cultural misadventures and one
near-arrest), grandma has finally “retired.” This is her story, as seen through my child eyes and my now eyes.
