Very Interesting...

This is a thirty-five minute interview on New York's public radio station with three experts in the China adoption process. I know it's lengthy, but I found it to be interesting, and that the three gentlemen in the interview were seemingly well-informed.

    Thank you for this excellent link, Joannah. Although I was only able to listen in a cursory fashion, I will be giving it my full attention tomorrow morning. I did however glean a glimmer of optimism--the first speaker said something about the process speeding up...hope springs eternal.

    Thank you so much for posting this Joannah! I was trying to tune it in yesterday, but reception was terrible so I missed it. I've just listened to the whole program, and it was indeed very interesting.

    Very interesting... I listened to the entire show. What we have to go through as perspective adoptive parents is scrutinizing to begin with. I feel very blessed to be in this process with only one more review to go.

    Thanks for the link.

    Interesting, but not too much that we haven't already heard. I kind of had to shake my head at that caller, who said now if they weant to adopt again from China, they have to stay in shape. I mean the CCAA is allowing you to have a BMI of almost 40 to still be able to adopt; I think that is still pretty liberal. I don't have the statistics at my fingertips, but that would still allow for quite a bit of wiggle room. My DH is overwight and has a 35 BMI and he could actually weigh another 30 or more pounds for his height and still be eligible to adopt. So I don't think a 40 BMI requires you to really stay in shAape!
