Grace at a Families with Children with China event
The Red Thread is a fairytale with a Chinese adoption theme. Grace noticed that many Chinese adoption groups had taken the legend of the red thread (a belief that people destined to be together are joined by an invisible red thread) which was originally for marriages and reinterpreted it for adoption and thought that was fascinating and wonderful. She has always been interested on how myths are and can be transformed over time. She feels that it makes these beliefs more real, more "living" somehow. So, Grace took their interpretation of the red thread and made it into this fairy tale.
