That's about where I've been lately, and thus, silent/absent here. Which is really too bad, because I had a fantastic conversation with Tami, there was all kinds of increased traffic to the blog and good conversations were developing, and then I went into overwhelmed mode and let all of the momentum go momentum-ing away.
But I have been reading, and thinking, and so I'm planning a comeback of sorts...
In the meantime, here's some of the best stuff I've read during the last little while:
- A different approach to orphans in Tanzania
- Thoughts on parenting and race
- Mom of now-infamous momlogic post responds
- What explains white-black disparities in school testing?
Oh, and then there was an absolutely terrific documentary on PBS about a girl (now a woman) who was adopted from Guatemala after her parents die in a mass execution. Very little, unfortunately, is said about the adoption experience itself, but the film is amazing in capturing the difficulty of trying to knit two different worlds together. And beyond all that, it's an extraordinary story. Learn more here.More soon, I promise...
