Where do we (Mike and I) go from here?

Joanne Wolf Small asked:
So, where do you go from here?
The answer deserved a post of its own, though I’ll let Mike find his own voice in his own timing and post whatever he adds as a guest blog.
First of all, we settle back in here at home after the trip Mike and I were on [...]

Being C.A.R.E.-less about in kind donations

Yup, been busy, perhaps I’ll blog some of it at a later date.
Meanwhile, here’s a brief note that we can add to the growing pile of C.A.R.E. abominations.

Just go read B.B. Church’s latest piece-  C.A.R.E. Pays for Play?

Or forgotten.” about the “California Adoption Reform Effort’s botched from the get go [...]

Being C.A.R.E.-less about adopted people’s access in CA

If you believe the California Adoption Reform Effort, (or C.A.R.E.”) is going to gain full Bastard access to records in CA I’ve got a bridge to sell ya… .
In C.A.R.E.’s case, apparently the Brooklyn Bridge, as they for a time, could not be bothered to even find a picture of a California landmark bridge, instead [...]
