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 linkage posts while nodding my head in agreement... others stretch my mind as I seek to understand. Always, always, I consider them.

In my heart I believe our children are so blessed to live in such a diverse community. There are so many different kinds of children adopted from so many different countries now...they are not alone as the first adoptees were....I pray for all of the adoptees that their identity will not rely on where they were born and who there parents are or are not but who there real Father is...and that He created them to be who they are and they are God's most beautiful masterpiece. Have a great Sunday...love you.

I second Collen's comment. I look forward to this all week. I laugh, cry, and most importantly, think.

Cheers, Kiy

Hey Tonggu momma - I'm a new reader to your blog, and a fellow "tonggu momma" myself to a wonderful 19 month old whom we adopted in January. These Sunday linkages are such a gem for me - thank you for sharing your research with us!
