International adoption in the headlines...hoooo boy!

OK. For better or for worse, international adoption has been all over the news the last couple of days. Most of my earth-dwelling readers will be familiar with a pop artist from Michigan of Italian-American heritage known as Madonna and her recently-failed attempt to adopt her second Malawian child. *Sigh* This unfortunate episode has put her, Africa, orphans and--by proxy--US in the news.

If you'd like a little perspective on this, read this interview from with Melissa Fay Greene, mother of 5 adopted children and author of There Is No Me Without You: One Woman’s Odyssey to Save Her Country’s Children. (Great book, by the way.)
