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
