Welcome

Thanks for stopping by! Whatever Things Are True covers politics, policy, and parenting in international adoption. Too often, the way we talk about international adoption reminds me of that old fable about The Blind Men and the Elephant – we tend to confuse one small part of the animal for the whole beast. Although I’m the mother of three via international adoption, I try to take a child-centered approach to adoption issues. I hope you’ll stick around and share your thoughts, too.

I feel for those families. When we were adopting our little girl from Vietnam's Bac Ninh province, we made it to Vietnam right before they shut down the program. We were on pins and needles for months after hearing the rumors that the program was being stopped. Somehow, the stars aligned and we were able to get to our daughter at Bac Ninh and bring her home. There were so many kids at the orphanage which was so run down. I pray that those families left in limbo can have resolution soon on their adoptions.
