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.

The Gang's Momma! said...

I'm still trying to get over how that blogger could NOT know who Gilda Radnor was. Gawsh, I hate how old that makes me feel.

Great line up this week, tho! :)
