I won't burden you with the requisite "seven random things," since I think my last post was random enough, but I will pass the honor on to a few of my favorites.
- ErinLo was the very first blog I frequented. Her touching writing helped pass the time during our seemingly endless wait to bring Reagan home. Her beautiful daughter Selah lived in the same orphanage as Reagan, and their trip to Vietnam provided our first glimpses of the province that was our daughter's first home.
- Christina (a.k.a. Mrs. Broccoli Guy) writes about family, parenting, adoption, and a great variety of otherwise mundane things in a compelling, insightful and challenging way.
- Nicki over at Stepping on Legos is an intelligent, creative woman who holds many views that oppose mine. Yet in spite of our differences, I admire her skills with a camera, a computer, and especially words.
- Merideth of Lawyerish was a tragic victim of the shut-down in U.S./Vietnam adoptions, but has handled the disappointment, and her current nearly-complete pregnancy, with humor and grace. Plus, she's a lawyer, so the girl can write!
- My friend in real life, Anita, uses the Biedeblog to keep us all up to speed with the Lord's work in Malawi, document the growth of their precious kids, and to encourage us through her dependence on God in all circumstances.
- Annemarie at The Day's Fashioned for Me doesn't post often, but when she does, it's a joy to read.
- The Bex Files by Jessica documented their journey to bring Bex home from Vietnam (are you seeing a theme here?), and now serve to show just how fun little boys can be. Plus, she's posting every day this year, and what blog reader doesn't love that?
There are so many others I could mention, but the Olympics are calling! Thanks again Rebekah!
