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.

So many good ones this week, y'all... be sure to grab a cup of coffee and settle in.

Thanks so much for linking my post about preschoolers and race! I also write more about race and children on my blog, I'm Not the Nanny www.imnotthenanny.com

What a great round of links you put together. I'm going to check them out.

I sometimes post links that I feel maybe helpful to others too. I'm sure the ones you posted would come in handy to other parents going through the adoption process.

Being fairly new to your blog I gotta say that one of the things I find really great (besides your writing style) is your Linkage.

I love that you share from you huge network of all sorts of adoption blogs, and I LOVE that you do a lot of the groundwork for me by rummaging through and serving me the highlights! ;)
