"I feel really selfish and lazy and like I cannot applaud myself at all for going with the China adoption program instead of fosteradopt. "
You know, when you get a kid with essentially no issues who is bonded to you, you feel a lot more like a birth parent (I believe), like "LOOK at this gorgeous child! How lucky am I!" Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. It is a pleasure to read how well the 2 of you are doing. Hugs!

Congratulations, Clutter Girl. I am so happy that you and the Dao are a family. Sometimes our children need to come to us through a circuitous route. I'm glad you have each other! Thank you for the updates! :)

I am also thrilled to hear how well things are going for you & the Dao!
Now if I could just figure out my new digital camera, I could send you some POULTRY PICTURES...

Books for Clutterchild

  • Andrea U'Ren: Pugdog

    Andrea U'Ren: Pugdog
    Pugdog just wants to be a dog, not a GIRL dog. Adorable illustrations, but a bit of overkill with the poodle ending. (****)

  • Rigoberto Gonzalez: Antonio's Card
    Antonio is nervous to show his mother's card with his two moms after the kids laugh at the butch one outside school one day. Nice to see a butch mom. Extra points for being bilingual English/Spanish. (****)
  • Peter Parnell: And Tango Makes Three

    Peter Parnell: And Tango Makes Three
    Another beautifully illustrated book about gay fathers, in this case, two male penguins in the zoo, who raise Tango, their baby from egg. My only problem, "it takes 2 to make a Tango". drat from the single mom point of view. (*****)

  • Latifa Alaoui: Marius
    Wonderful french canadian book about Marius, whose parents are divorced, and his mom has a boyfriend, and his father does too. Beautifully illustrated by Stephane Poulin (*****)
