2009: What a year

Looking back on 2009, I can say that this has been quite a year for me and my family this year. Just to name a few things:

I’m looking forward to an even more prosperous and rewarding 2010, including speaking at Confoo.ca in March, more writing, welcoming a new child into our home, and turning the big three-oh :-P. Happy New Year to everyone!

  1. Interesting year!

    Best of luck with your adoption plans. Interesting that you chose Spence-Chapin though. And something of a surprise, admittedly. As I’m sure you know, they’re not entirely controversy-free, and have been accused of pressurising vulnerable third-world women into surrendering their newborn so they could be sold to rich white Americans. Who knows. You’ve probably thought this all through pretty thoroughly anyway.

    1. From what I can tell, most of the adoption irregularities arise from the local governments, rather than the agencies themselves. And a lot of that is getting much better thanks to the Hague Convention.

      Korea itself is a very modernized system which is extremely well run; most children put up for adoption there are actually adopted to families in the country rather than overseas. Other countries aren’t quite up to that level of modernization in that area.

  2. magnificent points altogether, you simply gained a emblem new reader.
    What may you suggest about your put up that you made a few
    days in the past? Any certain?

  3. I’m a homeschooling mom. The girl needs to call the school she wants to attend, and ask them what they require. She then needs to work to fulfill the requirements. They may even suggest where she should go (community college, etc.) to get the courses she needs. Our local nursing school (ranked in the top 100 in the country) actually offers the students the remedial courses they need. If the girl is serious, she’ll follow through. I’m sure if the girl had known during high school that she wanted to attend nursing school, her mom would have helped her get the courses she needed then. I know I would have.
