I know I am supposed to be writing really entertaining blog posts about our exciting, funny and glamorous life here in China. Which is probably why I have been so quiet. Most days I don't do anything all that exciting, the funniest part of our lives usually revolves around cooking crises and plumbing and glamour...well, no.
What's easy to write about is what I am passionate about, and that's kids. THE kids, MY KIDS. Usually that means the Eagles Wings kids, but this isn't really supposed to be a blog about them so I want to talk about other kids like them. Orphaned kids, special needs kids, kids who are really just kids who need families. But hey, why do I need to talk when Amy Eldridge has done a better job already? (Search and re-apply...thank you FPL!) So please take a few minutes to read this post from Love Without Boundaries and then take a look at this page. There are seven eaglets RIGHT NOW, THIS MINUTE who are available for adoption. They are WAITING. (And yes, five of the seven are boys. The analyst in me feels compelled to point out the statistics in the LWB post that about 1 in 4 China adoptions last year were boys but that 3 in 4 children on the shared list are boys. I will also plead guilty to adopting girls, but if I had known then what I know now I would have absolutely adopted a boy.)
So here it is...it isn't exciting, funny or glamorous either, but it's important. Yeah, maybe that's what I should blog about, what's important. Why International Adoption Still Matters
