We are so grateful for this group of people (I call it the "number family," roughly translated from Chinese and brought to you by the number 4). God provided us with a number family made up of mostly American-born or raised Taiwanese students AND students who married early (or are close to being married). This year after our family dinners I've always come away marveling at how perfectly God provides for us -- people who understand cross-cultural challenges and the benefits of getting married early. We can look to our "siblings" for advice; not just about academic or clinical questions but also about family things like when is the best time to have kids during med school. I have learned a lot from them, even though I'm not 內行 (of their field). Two couples are having or had a baby this year so I'm taking notes for the future and also admiring them from a distance (med school + baby = crazy). They are a warm, welcoming, fun group of people and I couldn't have imagined a better cohort than what God designed. God has truly been faithful to us!
