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.

There are several reviews of the POV documentary "Off and Running" floating around the blogosphere this week. Check out these recent posts at Creating a Family, Joy's Division, My Mind on Paper, Adoption Fusion and Sarah's Blog.
