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.

Who was General Tso? And other mysteries of American Chinese Food -- a 16 minute talk given by Jennifer 8. Lee as part of Ted Talks... a funny, witty and educational video about the history of Chinese-American food and it's impact on popular culture [HAT TIP to Aunt Lolo of Bubba Bubbles]

sponsoring a child -- adoptive momma (Vietnam) Judy at Just Enjoy Him... her reasons for choosing to sponsor a child from her son's birth country

Lying to Myself -- adult adoptee (Taiwan) Mei-Ling at Shadow Between Two Worlds... how one simple question can lead to so much inner turmoil

Not Another Racism Post -- adoptive momma (China) Autumn at Autumn Asks Why... three important lessons she's learned about racism

A weekend immersed in adoption -- adoptive momma (Korea) Margie at Third Mom... a reminder of how starkly unbalanced is the adoption triad

And another thing... and Okay, maybe not all of them -- blogger resistance at Resist Racism... more about the Miley Cyrus photograph and the implications for Chinese-adoptive families

Who Really Has the Right to Judge Birthmothers?
-- first mother Claudia Corrigan D'Arcy at Musings of the Lame... stereotypes about first mothers and why other women judge them

The Lucky Ones -- adoptive momma (China) Lisa at The Mammahood... in adoption, the adoptive parents, not the children, are the "lucky" ones

General Tso is man of war? Fortune cookies are really from Japan? Chinese broccoli with beef is not Chinese? oh dear!
