I doubt it because her and my uncle both have grown children and I don’t think more are planned. I’m not sure more are even possible without adoption. I can’t say for sure what they’ve got planned, but a new family member would be a big surprise for everyone.
If I’m thinking about things in the framework of a struggle for power, money and saving face, maybe this makes a little more sense. This is a really interesting thought experiment for me.
My stepson is kind of the kid my uncle never had, even though he raised 3 boys who all turned out pretty well. None of his boys took to his interests, however. My kid and my uncle have been buddies since they first met, instant connection kind of thing. My uncle is a high-level bow hunter and general outdoorsman who played college hockey. My kid has been a lifelong hockey nut and a hockey player from age 7 or so. His other main interests are fishing, camping, hiking and hunting.
I suppose I can’t leave out partying with his boys and chasing tail, both of which he’s smartening up about lately, thankfully. He bagged his first turkey the other day. 19lb 13oz taken with a 12 gauge. Uncle was ecstatic, of course. That’s a monster bird.
Maybe this is a combination of Chinese long-gaming for money and power. Maybe it is good old fashioned female jealousy. Maybe I’m way off altogether. Who knows?
Thinking about it in strictly power and influence dynamics, perhaps she sees my uncle siphoning off more of their mutual funds to my kid. He’s definitely blown a LOT of money on him over the years. She may even have a point…
Again, I’d like to stress that this is a minor concern and she’s been a wonderful new member of our family, as has her daughter. It definitely spices up the family pot to bring someone in from far away. For what it’s worth my uncle’s older sister also fell for Asia and Asians. She spent most of the 90’s and 00’s in Japan doing all kinds of high level business roles. Very fluent in Japanese. She was also very attracted to shitty men with Asian features.
