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.

Quit choosing links that make me cry. (not really, I love your Sunday Links! Glad you do this every week)

Yes, I can see the links better, and the "clicked on" links better. Thanks. I thought if it were a problem for me, it might be for others, too.
