Days off are wonderful for catching up on reading and writing - hence multiple posts here: I just found a most amazing blog, a woman's international adoption story in which she pulls no punches about the difficulties of bonding with her daughter, adopted as a toddler from Jamaica as opposed to the ease of bonding with her birth son about the same age. The post to which I'm linking you gives a superbly written account of the contrast in the quality of life between our pampered children and the truly poor children in places like Jamaica's "City of the Sun". http://www.anymommyoutthere.com/2008/08/tummy-mommy.html
