The Dao is a pretty lucky kid!


Well, I guess it actually is true. Not to have me... I am so lucky to have him. But that someone found a day old baby and took him where he would be well cared for and loved for two years, that someone bothered to suggest him for adoption and do all the paperwork in order to give him a referral to us here overseas. To go from being a tiny helpless baby who wasn't even capable of sucking to being a rather spoiled pudgy kid whose surgery was paid for (in China), with a mama, here in Quebec, is pretty cool. And to go from being an infertile single woman past 40, sitting at home with my dog and cats, to being accepted to fly across the seas to another country and being gifted a child to raise as her own, that is pretty cool and lucky too. ;D


I guess you both are lucky and you found each other when you needed each other.

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 (*****)
