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 am praying for your family! Hope you all are feeling better soon - such a good verse to remember during this time!

Bristol Palin is the same age that my husband's mother was - I think that adoption is a very private decision.
Really interesting links!

Ooh, feel better soon!

And: Not sure if we were the only ones, of if it was because we were adopting an older boy. But, we didn't get a Barbie at the WS this past February. Bummer, too, 'cause the eBay proceeds were going to help pay for the WS!

Loved these links. The one about Owen and his mommy...that just about broke my heart! Those of us who've never adopted have no idea what families go through.
