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.

I've finally gotten my slack backside into gear and added you to my bloglines!

Your blog looks great! We already have something in common (Janet T!~ don't ya just love that woman?!!)

I've been reading up on the "milk powder crisis" - and knowing our we are so close to Mini... I'm hoping she wasn't in an orphanage that used the bad milk.

hi! Thanks for linking to my post! Looking forward to reading more on your site.

Just for clarification, I say that *I* don't prefer to use the term yellow for me. However, there are Asians who feel that the descriptor more accurately reflects their identities.

In true advocacy speak, it's really up to individuals to decide how they want to be called. And, for me, the "yellow vs brown" category was always an interesting concept to reflect upon.

Thanks for linking! Looking forward to reading more from you!
