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.

some of these titles are a little scary for me! But, I think so important for me to look in to.

5th one from down really caught my eye. That is so sad that the parents lost their child but it proves to me that they still really love him since they don't want to pull him away from the only life he has know.
Thanks for posting these! They are really great.

Great links! Funny timing- I had a "nice" conversation with someone this afternoon! That post (6th one down) came to mind as I stumbled to pick my jaw off the ground and answer!
