Because I have strong beliefs, but hate confrontation, and because there is a growing, urgent need to stop unethical adoptions while still desperately trying to keep adoptions open for families doing this the right way and for children who really do need a family, and knowing that not one single case is the same and a gazillion factors come into play, I would like to give you a GREAT blog from a beautiful friend of mine, well, actually she isn't a friend per say, but a mere acquaintance via blogosphere whom I've never shared correspondence with at all, but that's beside the point, but none-the-less very wise and will statistically, lovingly and morally break it all down for you in a way that I feel like I can agree with, even if I do have to agree with it in a ridiculously long, unnecessary run-on sentence...
So here is the blog (series) by Jen Hatmaker. Thanks Jen for allowing me to link back to your knowledge of this very delicate issue.
Let's Take This Journey Together
In my attempt to find information for our adoption process from Uganda, I became quickly aware that there just isn't much out there. I wanted to create a way for all of us taking this journey together to be able to walk along-side each other. A place we can find other people taking this journey with us. A place to encourage each other during the journey. A place to keep up with the family after the adoption is finalized, because, let's face it, the adoption is only the beginning of this journey!
If you are in the process of adopting from Uganda and are blogging about your journey, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add you to the hopefully growing list of people who are bringing these orphans home!
