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.

Where did the time go?

I came to peek at a few (knowing I would be back for the rest) and never left.

Thank you for compiling these heartfelt, thoughtful,sometimes wrenching and vitally important perspectives.

Thank you to each of the contributors as well.
