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.

We're getting very close to Travel Approval to adopt our seven year old son from China. I'm reading all I can, and I really like to listen to all sides of an issue. Thank you for serving us all with this post!

Wow, no shortage of interesting and thought-provoking materials in these last couple Sundays . . . my brain is frying up and sizzling as I type. I really am so incredibly grateful for these links. Some of them make me sad, some of them make me happy. Sometimes they even make me mad. But they always, always make me think. And PRAY! Thank you for the hard work that I know goes into this stuff!
