A few weeks off

Dear Readers,

AS many of you know, my family and I are taking a few weeks off to travel to China and meet the newest member of our family. As you read this we will be landing in Beijing. If you are interested in following our story, we will try to post to our China blog while overseas. I hope to resume this blog in mid April. So check back then.

I am taking a few books with me. I found a new travel memoir called Undress me in the Temple of Heaven by Susan Jane Gilman. A story of some young college graduates who set out to be a pair of the first people who back pack around China when it was first opening to tourists in the late 80s. This is already starting to be page turner. I am also taking Malcolm Gladwell's latest which I got for Christmas. So bring it on 12 hour plane flights! I am ready for you.

I would love readers to take a look at this article from the economist last month. It is a really sad and sobering article about the war on girls. If you have any other interesting articles to refer me to about Chinese adoption please post the links. Until then, see you when I get back.

Peace and happy reading!
