Redesign!!!

Yes, you're in the right place -- we're still AdoptionTalk! My Mother's Day gift to myself -- I carved out some "me" time to do a bit of a redesign to the blog. I also added a "Follower" gadget -- click on the "Follow" button to the right, and let people know you're reading!

And giving credit where credit is due, the free Asian-inspired blog background comes from Izzie Grace Designs.

Love it! Happy Mother's Day to all of us--first mom's, foster mom's, and adoption moms. Here is to understanding and acceptance among us all.

Ooh, fancy new theme!

What does the character on the sides mean?

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! Xie xie, Mei-Ling! I'm told the character means "life," which is pretty appropriate, especially since Zoe means "life." (Maya means "divine creative force," which is "life," too, in a way!).

Of course, I have not had the character independently verified, so it probably means "stupid foreigner will put anything on blog!"

Mei-Ling said...

You're right, Malinda.

The character for life is "sheng1ming4" = 生命

Love the new digs!

Thanks for the confirmation, Mei-Ling. I'd checked it on MandarinTools.com, but I don't trust my eye for characters!
