Blogaholics Anonymous

Lots of good links this week!  Enjoy.

Good Bye - Viewing life from the perspective of a newly arrived older child.  This blogger really knows how to tell a story.

Attachment Tips - Calling all adoptive parents.  Here's a great list of practical ways to attach with your adopted child.

Parents, Please Educate Your Kids About Adoption So Mine Don't Have To - Blogger Kristen Howerton, from Rage Against the Minivan, created a firestorm over at Huffington Post yesterday with this gutsy post.

Sabbath Sailing - Just reading this article made me feel relaxed.  Would you consider "unplugging" on the Sabbath to spend time enjoying God's creation?

Shading the Truth to Ease the Fears of Adoptive Parents - A challenging post by an adult adoptee.  Do adoption professionals always act in the best interest of the child?

10 Ways to Help a New Mom - great post with great advice.  I'd love to have someone write something like this for moms adopting older kids.  In my experience those first few months are every bit as challenging as the first months with a new baby.

Dear 22 Year Old Me - What would you say to your 22 year old self?


  1. Thanks for linking to "Shading the Truth," Dana. My goal in writing is to make adoption better and to raise people's consciousness about the inequities of sealed records. I really appreciate your reading and sharing!

    1. I enjoy following your work, Susan.
