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.

Thanks for the link to John Raible's post, "Why so angry?" As a transracial adoptee (Korean adopted into White American family), I could relate to basically every statement he made...and although he did so honestly and candidly, he did so maturely and insightfully.
