Getting ready for a little soiree tonight that I’ll tell you all about tomorrow!
In the meantime, check out this op-ed piece from The New York Times called, “The Mystery of the Chinese Baby Shortage.”
This is a story I’ve really been following closely since it first broke — that the Chinese government has changed its rules and guidelines about who can adopt children from China because of the purported “shortage” of babies.
Obviously, I have a lot of mixed feelings about the changes and the contention that there aren’t enough children to “go around.” The Chinese government clearly has the right to decide who should be able to adopt the children from their country who need homes. But until there are more Chinese families willing to step forward, I worry about all the children who linger.
And, yes, that’s my little PunditGirl when she was still a PunditBaby!
I’ll be interested in your thoughts about the article.
