Activism Page Update
A recent post on a KAD blog describing the challenge of living with leukemia touched me from the point of view of adoptees' loss of their family connections, and reminded me how urgent it is for Asian Americans to consider becoming bone marrow donors. If you are Asian American, please consider taking this important action, which may save a life. If you're not Asian American, you can help, too - anyone can plan and conduct a bone marrow drive in your community or where you work (email me if you're considering this - I've done this in my community, am planning to do it again, and would be happy to offer my insights). See the links below for more information.

Adoptive parents - DO NOT MISS Twice the Rice's post yesterday, As good as the real thing. Every word hits the nail on the mark - especially this: "Why must we pretend that it is as good as the real thing?" Birth is birth. Adoption is adoption. Not the same, not the same parenting challenge. Thank you, Ji-In.
