My Agenda

Every so often I receive an e-mail or see a comment on a blog or newsgroup questioning why I write what I write or do what I do. In order to make my motives clear, I have decided to write this essay detailing my journey in adoption and why I feel so passionately about the China adoption program.

Research-China.Org Blog:
If you are reading this, you are probably an adoptive parent of a child from China or interested in China's international adoption program. Research-China.Org has been researching China's orphanages for over two decades, and the articles presented on this blog are written with adoptive families in mind. Since we began this blog in August 2005, we have written over a hundred different articles. Many were written in response to incidents of small import, others were in-depth investigative pieces written in response to major events in the history of China's adoption program. There is no doubt much that will interest you.
