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.

Number 6 and no more counting! said...

Oh my gosh. I sure appreciate all your research. Off to the library website I go to see if I can order any/some of these books.

Enjoy Father's Day and the recital. I am sure both will be worth remembering.
