Posts I enjoyed…

01 Sep


I haven’t done a link post for awhile so here are a few I read and enjoyed lately, they made me think.

Amanda at “After All, it’s a small world” has a post that speaks about Mothers in Africa, and why the western perceptions don’t work.  From her about page:

I am Amanda. My husband, “BB” and son, Freddy recently moved to Kigali, Rwanda after spending 13 lovely years in Chicago.  I am an attorney, and I am working as a legal fellow for International Justice Mission.

I started this blog to chronicle our adoption journey.  We attempted to adopt three children from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. After learning that the documents had been falsified to support the adoption, the adoption has been terminated.”

I would encourage you to read more than just this post, because it’s all good.  The post I am linking to is simply called Mothers

Next up is from “Wacky Adorable Family“, who is an adoptive parent, but also identifies her blog as “liberal tree-hugger rants“…  She is Cherokee and her post speaks to what is missing in the mainstream conversation about Baby Veronica

The author of “Somebody’s Children” Dr. Laura Briggs has a new post up that also brings different thoughts to the same case.  Baby Veronica, Again: Still a Feminist Issue 

And from Reluctant Xian “Jesus Wouldn’t Like That…” and “What Would Jesus Do” Shouldn’t Be Uttered Anymore that has nothing to do with adoption, and yet he touches on points at the end that run parallel with the same topic Amanda does in her post. 

Hope you all are having a wonderful and safe long weekend.
