The Pursuit of Happiness — I found it in Chengdu

Authors: Joachim Kim Kässmodel (China Daily)


I live in Chengdu, a poetic place that hosts foodies and creative minds.
Today, both of us live happily in Chengdu. She quitted her good job (she was the managing director of a reputable law firm in New York), along with it the comfortable life style, leaving the city that she adores behind to move back to Chengdu. Together, we started the Consulting company Ferrante & Partners, Ltd. and assist our clients with businesses and immigration needs in America, China & Europe. Juggle both professional and private life with the same person present many challenges but I found that having an interracial relationship is also rewarding. She is a Chinese but also has western culture and values. She is my partner in business, and my lover in life. Recently, she added a new role by becoming the mother of my child. By the graces of Buddha, we were blessed with a beautiful boy who links her and me for an eternity to come.
As we settled ourselves down in this beautiful city, Chengdu, we look back on our journey thus far, feeling blessed and happy. Two people who could not have been more different met in Chengdu, a city with millions of people. Together we followed our hearts, and stayed true to ourselves. Were we afraid at one point that the journey might not work out? Oh yes, very much, but like my wife always like to say: if there is a will, there is a way.
I want to share my story with many other couples and singles out there. If you believe in love, please be brave and embrace it, as love indeed works wonders.
