Sunday Linkage

As always, I don't necessarily agree or disagree with these links, but I believe they are important to consider. For those of you new around here, I'm an adoptive momma. Each Sunday I try to post links relevant to the China- adoptive community. I read some of these linked posts while nodding my head in agreement... others stretch my mind as I seek to understand. Always, always, I consider them. The better we inform ourselves, the greater our adoptive parenting skills.

Adoption Speak -- blogger and adoptive momma Tiffany at Namaste (hat tip to Alyson and Ford at Imagine Alyzabeth An)... a helpful (and sometimes funny) list for everyone about what to say and what NOT to say to an adoptive parent

Leah During August and Leah Post Surgery -- blogger, crafter and Love Without Boundaries fundraiser Melissa at Craft for China... this fundraising blog shares pictures of little Leah, living at the Anhui Cleft Healing Home, before and after her cleft palate/ cleft lip surgery

Reflections -- blogger and first mother WMW at Writing My Wrongs... one woman's worry for her husband on Sept. 11, 2001 becomes a worry for someone else very special in her life

Silence is NOT Golden -- blogger and transracial adoptee Agnes at The Rice Bowl Diaries... a vent about her adoptive parents' reaction to her birth family search that, while difficult to hear and also highly specific to her family, also provides insight

Hey Mia & Mike - Look Who We Met -- bloggers and days-away-from-becoming -adoptive-parents Alyson and Ford at Imagine Alyzabeth An... a short post reminding us that God truly does orchestrate everything, even our travel groups

Being In Reunion -- adult transracial adoptee and blogger Mei Ling at Shadow Between Two Worlds... Mei Ling discusses how her reunion with her Taiwanese birth family effects her life

Newborn Found in China's Bird's Nest Stadium -- the Associated Foreign Press... a newborn baby found abandoned in a women's restroom at this now famous Olympics venue (the article uses the word toilet to refer to the restroom rather than the actual toilet)
