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.

Navigating Between Two Mothers -- first mother Lorraine Dusky at Birth Mother/ First Mother Forum... her observations about her daughter's struggles to form relationships with both her first mother and adoptive mother during the teen years

Just Thinking
-- adoptive momma (domestic U.S., but living in Australia) Kohana at Growing Family... her conflicted and confused thoughts about adoption

If Only the New Disney Princess Could be More Like Mulan
-- adoptive momma (China) Joanne Bamberger at PunditMom... y'all know how much I am anti-Princess and pro-Mulan - how could I NOT include this link?

U.S. Births Hint at Bias for Boys in Asian Families
-- guest writer and aspiring novelist Linda Chan at 8 Asians... the preference for boys, so prevalent in some Asian countries, appears to be creeping its way into the United States

Different Decisions = Different Families = That's Okay! -- first mother Firemom at Stop, Drop and Blog... a recent blog "argument" between WAHMs and WOHMs reminds Firemom of arguments among the adoption triad

Babies!!! - adoptive momma (China) the Rumor Queen at China Adopt Talk... links to blogs of families who received referrals this month through the China adoption program

Don't Go Crossing My Boundaries -- adoptive momma (domestic, open) Liana at Welcome to the Dollhouse... why she finds it so very difficult to deal with boundary crossers on adoption-related posts, even though she copes well with them when she writes about other topics [HAT TIP to Melissa at Stirrup Queens]

The Madonna Effect -- adoptive momma (Cambodia and Vietnam) Christina at Voices for Vietnam Adoption Integrity... thoughts about the recent court ruling in Malawi about little Mercy

Great links! I couldn't agree more about Mulan and the princesses. I tried unsuccessfully to get Amelia to prefer Mulan over the princesses - perhaps if she wore a pink sparkly dress while battling the huns I would have a chance with my girly girl:(

Haven't had a chance to look at all of the links, but did you notice that one of the babies listed on RQ's blog list is a Tonggu baby? :-)
