Question by Gershom: What adoption related blogs or sites are you reading right now?
I recently discovered ChildLaw and its REALLY GOOD.


Does anyone else have a favorite adoption related blog or site they want to share?
Hey thanks for some new links, some here I haven’t seen or heard of before so I’m stoked on that! Especially the China ones. I appreciate it thank you!

I heart Childlaw.

Also the wonderful Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute:

Desiree and Usha’s Fleas Biting:

And for China, Brian Stuy’s blog, Research China:

And so many blogs from adult adoptees, it makes my head spin (and keeps me up till, ahem, almost 2am yet again), including many who post here (Possum, Amy, Jae-Ran, Harlow’s Monkey, Ethnically Incorrect Daughter, late lamented Twice the Rice, and many others). And some from adoptive parents also (Third Mom, Just enjoy him, Clueless in Carolina). And first moms’ also. I need to go to bed, or I would post highlights. Maybe I’ll come back tomorrow.

And can’t resist throwing in the related (for me at least) blogs on Race:

Reading through questions..Do you think its sad that mom’s get so excited about meal planning or organization?

Question by Jackson’s mom: Reading through questions..Do you think its sad that mom’s get so excited about meal planning or organization?
because that is the only thing we have to do? I am a SAHM and find myself also getting excited over coupon clipping or savings at the grocery store, or planning meals and sticking to the list, or house work lists. Is this a depressing thng? I am being serious. I literally have nothing else to do but plan out things and the occasional hobbies and crafts I do. Should we all get out and mingle more? get night jobs to contribute? Anything?

Answer by Mean people suck!
I bet all the mom’s working 40+ hrs. a week are thinking how great it would be to *only* have to plan meals and write up lists. I don’t need a night job partly because of the coupon clipping. My son is all the hobby I need. He takes up plenty of my time. If it makes you feel better then get a job. Happiness is important.

Create your own DIY guide at www.howcast.com or produce your own Howcast spots with the Howcast Filmmakers Program at www.howcast.com Trying to eat healthy but confused about what to avoid? Nutrition labels can help you make smart food choices. To complete this How-To you will need: Patience Some math skills Step 1: Look at serving size Look at the serving size; all numbers on a nutrition label refer to a single serving. You might discover that what you consider a light snack is actually meant to feed four! Tip: Keep in mind that the calories per serving generally don’t include additional ingredients you may need to prepare the item. Step 2: Weigh the calories Look at the line marked “calories.” Limit foods whose “calories from fat” make up more than a third of the total. Step 3: Chew over the fat Check out the “Total Fat” section. It tells you the number of fat grams in a serving, plus the breakdown of the kinds of fat. Avoid foods that contain trans fats and whose “percent daily value” of saturated fats is higher than 20 percent. Tip: Percent daily value is based on a daily intake of 2000 calories. Growing teenagers and athletes often consume more, while women and older people sometimes consume less. Step 4: Check your cholesterol Check the cholesterol number
