Morning reads...

My morning routine is to take a coffee back to bed and read the newspaper and then I read my favourite blogs on my laptop. These are mostly families en route or in China to receive their children. This is a recent thing as I thought I was long past following these trips. We know a couple who are slowly but surely inching toward getting their referral and I began following the monthly announcements of what dates were coming up. These were linked to the blogs and I was hooked. I also have a colleague who is adopting a sibling group from Ethiopia.........same thing! The situation with Chinese adoption is so agonizingly slow now......about 3-5 years I think they are saying.....that many are turning to Africa where it is a year from beginning to end for the whole process approximately.  God knows there are enough orphans in the world that where we go doesn't matter. That these kids get a home and family does so very much. Hence my previous get people thinking.
