Bixia Liu


Bixia Liu was an elementary school teacher in Guangzhou, China. At age 63, she immigrated to the United States and became a daycare teacher. Today, Bixia has advanced dementia and looks forward to visits from Charlie the therapy dog – quietly appreciating his patient demeanor and reliable willingness to spend time together without expectations.
