Since I just reentered the blogosphere yesterday, this is going to be a mighty short list.  But let me say, I am really enjoying reading everyone’s thoughts once again!  Here are a few of the posts I recommend today.  As always, I don’t necessarily agree with all the opinions expressed, but I value that they were expressed.

My Salvadoran Crocodile Dundeeat Latina-ish – is a funny account of the valience of Tracy’s marido (husband) in saving their family from a very persistent snake.

Love and Regretover at Adoption Choices – A hopeful and inspiring post about the reality of living in an open adoption (while honest that it’s not always easy).

We are here!at Our Little Tongginator – After 5 years of waiting, my friend Tonggu Mama is on her adoption trip (with husband, mom and daughter) to bring home their second Chinese-American daughter.

First-world problems that are ruining the lives of my children at Rage Against the Minivan – echoes conversations I’ve had with a number of my friends, lately.

Dylusions – Day 6 at 1036 Art – my “real-life” friend Ellen became my “blog-life” friend over a year ago when she started her own arts-and-crafts blog.  I check it regularly, and I really liked this particular piece (partly because I need that reminder on a regular basis).  But wander around her blog for a while – she’s exceptionally talented!

Picking your parents: Adult adoption on the rise at Pound Pup Legacy.  Since we have one in my immediate family, this article landed near my heart.

And a series from a little while back by my friend Danielle in El Salvador:  Trip to Morazán – Part One – Museum of the Revolution “, “Trip to Morazán – Part Two – Guerilla Military Camp“, and Trip to Morazán – Part Three – Memorial at El Mozote – covering a piece of Central American history of which we tend to be unaware here in the U.S.  Yet the repercussions are with us today – most visably in the current “immigration issue” debate.
