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.

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!
