From the last few weeks, some good stuff we’ve read that relates to adoption and/or parenting a special needs child.
As always, if you are a traveling family, or have posted something, or read something, that you’d like to share here on No Hands But Ours, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the news:
Adoptive mom Linda Goldstein Knowlton, who produced the award-winning film Whale Rider, recently produced Somewhere Between, a documentary film that tells the stories of four teenaged girls, all adopted from China.
In the blog world:
Karin, from Treasures from Afar, blogs about some recent medical appointments for her kids, Zoey and Jordan. Zoey went to Shriner’s to receive a new prosthetic leg and Jordan went to Boston to reveal his “new” ear. Be sure to check out the amazing ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures.
And our very own Nancy, recently home from China, has found herself co-sleeping with new daughter Mazie, and not loving it. But thanks to some great advice, she has found a lovely, and restful, compromise.
And lastly, if you’re like all of us around here, you’ll want to take a few moments (or hours!) and travel vicariously with these families currently in China to bring home their kids.
