Whatever Wednesday

Each Wednesday we post links from the previous week that touch on special needs adoption. Our hope is that these small snapshots provide you with a glimpse of life after adopting through China’s waiting child program… both the long-term blessings and the challenges that come with parenting a child with special needs. We also hope to raise awareness about a variety of special needs.

    Honestly, I think it's a spammer that's been going around the circuit. I have noticed it on a couple blogs with IA in common . . .

    I tried translating this comment above in g**gle translator, which came up with this:

    "Frustrated in front of others, do not talk about proud of it; proudly in front of others, do not talk about frustration thing."

    Is that what it says? Anybody? And if so, what does that mean??? Just wondering … is the commenter saying we are talking proudly about our frustrations? Just trying to understand …

tell us what you think...
