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.

Just Sit There -- first mother Suz at Writing My Wrongs... I can't even sum up this post because sometimes I am just so embarrassed by the words of fellow adoptive parents

What I Think About When I Think About Love -- adult adoptee (Korea) Sang-Shil Kim at Land of the Not So Calm... "Being adopted did not make me this (messed) up. But being abandoned did."

The Other Woman -- adoptive momma (China) Meredith Teagarden at The Things We Carried... a recent conversation with a fellow adoptive parent leaves her feeling flabbergasted

I'm Bloggin' Again

What wrong with the truth? -- adoptive momma (China) Cavatica at Cavatica's Web... talking with your child about relinquishment/ abandonment

You know you enjoy Western priviledge when... -- waiting to adopt (China) madduchess at the disloyal subject of the red queen... a recent conversation with a dummard

Chronic Problem or Redemptive Response? -- adoptive momma (domestic, transracial) Miles' Mama at The Chronicles of Miles... two recent blog posts leave her pondering this question

Thanks again, Tm. I was especially interested to read the "Adoption Guilt" post. I sometimes can get bogged down in the kinds of posts she was blogging about!! Refreshing!!

Kris said...

Thanks so much for linking me!! Someone called Melodie commented (she had to have come from here, I've never seen her comment and your blog is the only one listed under the ones she follows)- I can't get to her website and I'm so wanting to email her- she meets her daughter the SAME day as me!!! Need to post my itinerary but I'm drowning in getting ready!
