The Week’s LinksPosted by Kim
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 Dundee” at 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 Regret” over 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.
