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.

Those arguments are so tired
-- adult adoptee (Korea) and adoptive parent (China) Raina at faiths & illusions... on adoptive parents (and others outside of the adoption community) who want to avoid the fact that her adoption was a direct result of abandonment

God's Will, the Moral Excuse and the Broken-Hearted -- adult adoptee (domestic) Amanda at The Declassified Adoptee... on God's will in adoption, from a Christian adoptee perspective

Adoption & Ancestry II -- adoptive momma (China) Malinda at Adoption Talk... on genealogy and the adoptee, both at home and at school

Love You Forever -- first mother Sandy Young at Musing Mother... on reunion between adult adoptees and their first parents

You Don't Understand -- adoptive momma (China) the Rumor Queen at China Adopt Talk... on building bridges with the small things so that they exist for the large things - things like adoption and race

Kindergarten & Racism: Welcome to the Real World, Kid -- adult adoptee (Korea) Melissa at Yoon's Blur... her entire series on lessons she learned in school is worth reading, but - with a first grader now - this one especially spoke to me

Looking Through My Daughter's Eyes -- adoptive momma (China) Lisa Kaden at Love Without Boundaries... a reminder that all of our children come with their own unknown stories, whether they be adopted through the special needs program or the non-special needs program

Open Adoption: Feelings and Actions -- adoptive momma (domestic, open) Jen at A Nickel's Worth of Common Sense... the complicated emotions one feels as an adoptive parent are universal, but the dynamics of an open adoption can bring them further out in the open

Choice -- adult adoptee (Korea) 윤선 (Yoon Seon) at 안녕습니다 (annyong seumnida): My adventures as a Korean Adoptee... on choice - and the lack of choice - within adoption, depending on whether you are an adoptive parent, birthparent or adoptee

Scratches --adoptive momma (China) Leigh at La Bicicleta.... on self-harming behaviors and the emotions inside

Traumatic for real kid to witness tossed adoptee, adoptee just fine -- adult adoptee (domestic, BSE) ungrateful little bastard... pointing out the underlying societal message that adoptees do not deserve the same compassion as other children

Teen Adoption and Foster Programs
-- adoptive momma (Korea) Carissa at the group adoption blog Grown In My Heart... on moving from foster-to-adopt to fostering an expectant teen mom who is not considering adoption

Adoption as Supply-and-Demand for Infertile Couples -- adoptive momma (Guatemala) Kim at American Mamacita... on how prospective adoptive parents sound to others on the other side of the wait

'I Am Human' -- blogger resistance at Resist Racism... I don't know how to label this one, but just go read it
