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 China, Who Adopts Girls & Why? -- adoptive momma (China) Malinda at China Adoption Talk... quoting a 2006 research paper on domestic adoption (mostly informal adoption) and attitudes towards girls in rural China

A Tricky Question
-- adoptive momma (China) AmFam at American Family... answering a reader's question, "If you had a white husband, do you think you might still have adopted internationally, or considered doing so?"
