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.

A House Divided -- adult adoptee (Korea) and adoptive parent (China) Raina at the group adoption blog Grown In My Heart... on the differing views that exist within the adoption community, after reading two responses to the adoption segment seen on the television talk show "The View"
