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 Talk: Emerging From My Mask -- adult adoptee (domestic, reunited) Amanda at The Declassified Adoptee... definitely a must-read about her conversation with her (adoptive) mother

Amy Eldridge of LWB Speaks -- adoptive momma (China) Malinda at Adoption Talk... sharing Amy Eldridge's words about the current child population within Chinese orphanages

The sole trauma is the loss that occurs BEFORE adoption, but the practice of adoption itself causes no pain? -- adult adoptee (Korea) Melissa at Yoon's Blur... her response to the commonly held belief (by adoptive parents) that the trauma occurs before adoption, rather than also because of the adoption

"Just" an adoption, and all the racial issues that go with it -- adoptive momma (China) Awesome Cloud's Family at Zhe shi wo ying er... on how and why adoption is not a neat replacement for giving birth

a surprise gift -- adoptive momma (China) Kristi at the group special needs China adoption blog No Hands But Ours... on the surprise gift of a son when adopting from China

Did You Know "Despicable Me" Has Adoption Themes? -- adoptive momma (China) Malinda at Adoption Talk... a compilation of reviews written by adoptive parents about the recently released children's movie

Babies!!! -- adoptive momma (China) the Rumor Queen at China Adoption Talk... links to family blogs of families who recently received adoption referrals through China's non-special-needs and special needs programs

Thanx as usual for all your links.

I keep going back to RQ cause I can't believe how many days they did!! I keep thinking it must be a mistake! Do you think all those days may have been light?

I so enjoy your blog and love that you post these links. They give me exposure to blogs I might never have come across otherwise. Great list this week.
