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.

"how adoptive parents shouldn't ever arrive at a comfortable "I've done my job" place"

Oh good. I didn't go overboard in trying to convey that!

(I'm happy you linked to it, though.)
