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.

Great links this week. Some really hard stuff to weed through - good thing I've had all morning to read, what with all the snow my guys are out shoveling :)

I particularly appreciate the one about honoring culture. We are feeling settled and "normal" enough now to tackle some of these questions and it's one I'll go back to over and over to navigate our own way of living as a dual-cultured family . . .

Thanks as always :)
