Talking about adoption, birthparents, abandonment, race, and China with my kids. That's not all we talk about -- but reading this blog, you'll think it's all we do!!!!!

Blech! How Did I Miss This the First TIme Around?
A "retro review" of a 2005 episode of "The Simpsons," called Goo Goo Gai Pan, where Selma adopts a baby from China. Sounds like they trotted out every known stereotype about China and adoption.
I don't watch the Simpsons, but I can't believe there wasn't some outcry from China adoptive parents about this episode. How did I miss that?! What was I doing in 2005? Oh, yeah, adopting Maya. . . . I missed a lot that year!
