Blogaholics Anonymous - Just three links this week!

I'm a blog addict, an information junkie. I read decorating blogs, home organization blogs, adoption blogs, political blogs - anything that makes me learn or think or laugh or grow.

This was my last week homeschooling before summer break and Nathan's last week at the International Community School.  Add in Julia's soccer tryouts in the evenings and a weekend soccer tournament for Katherine -- at the beach -- weekend soccer tournaments are so much more fun when you can hit the beach after the final game --and I didn't spend much time online this week.  The following three posts, however, are outstanding.  Sometimes less is more.

Disclaimer: By posting these links, I'm not saying I endorse all the views expressed.

The Ugly, Beautiful Truth - What do you tell an adopted child about his history when you don't know the answers for sure?

The Harder Path - When you adopt an older child, do you allow her to stay in contact with friends from her birth country by phone?  How does this affect her language acquisition and her bonding with you?  What's the right thing to do?

Giving Back - I've gotten to know Jennifer Peterson as she's regularly left comments on Death by Great Wall and as I've read her blog.  Here, a regional newspaper interviews her about being a foster parent to 16 foster kids over the years, eventually adopting five of them.
