Surprisingly, Chris agreed and they decided to move to China along with their 3 children (15, 10, and 9 years old at the time)
The three children could not speak any Chinese or been to China, it was a huge challenge for all of them, but Chris and Lydia took the risk and went ahead with this adventure.
