Thanks for sharing this. It was interesting listening. I'm intrigued at the way the new CCAA regulations are being portrayed in the media.

I was surprised at the statement that something like 75% of Chinese adoptive parents adopt from China a second time. I think that's wonderful! Anecdotal discussions Ive had with adult adoptees suggest that it's a good thing - in many cases they wished that there was someone else in the family 'like them' that they could relate to. We'd like to adopt twice from China, but right now adoption number one seems so far away!

Happy new year!
