This will be a quick and short post just because I wanted to clarify one thing. Sometimes I decide to repost articles or stories I find that in some way relate to adoption. I usually link the article to the original source, and provide a quick little explanation of where it came from and why I may have chosen to link it. I really do this for conversation fodder. That’s the whole aim of my blog, is to get dialogues going that hinge on issues related to Adoption.
I chose to post this piece of clarification because I think there has been some confusion in the past when I repost articles and don’t necessarily write why I may have chosen to repost such pieces. Many are incredibly problematic, which is the reason I repost them-because I think it’s really important to question and critique the ways in which adoption is understood through media channels.
In the future I’ll make it more of a point to include some brief analysis, and cite the reasons I have decided to repost particular articles.
