Another lady writer outdoing me

After linking to my fave Naked Ovary last post, now I'm compelled to direct you to Sara's touching memoir occasioned by the death of Tower, from I said it before, she said it better.

Adopty Genius

I know I haven't posted in an age, missed all manner of huge events, failed to comment on Bob Dylan and Los Abandoned being shut out of the Grammy nominations....but I have something important to share.

This is my favorite blog. The Naked Ovary. I don't know this woman but I have never read more nuanced, funny, smart, fierce stuff on being an adoptive parent. And her current post (12/07/06) is so damn true. (Though since she's not an open adoption tribe member, she doesn't get into how "our own" means "my own" as well.)

Please go read it before she writes something else that's brilliant.
