"He followed me home, can I keep him?"

We made our annual pilgrimage to Cox Farms yesterday, wherein many hay rides were taken, many animals were pet and many gourds observed. A perfect day to take in some Fall activities and secure some pumpkins for the front porch, soon to end up as orange mash in the middle of the street (darn kids). There were many slides featured this year, of varying heights and changes from potential to kinetic energy. We worked our way up to the taller ones.

And the pony rides! How can you not shell out the five spot for a couple of turns around the ring at a half mile an hour on a wild animal that may throw your precious, helmet-less little girl at any minute? No, really these were the most docile creatures on the planet, doubtless sedated with the equine equivalent of Valium for this gig. Of course it was Ally's first time on one, and not her last I suspect.

I love your blog and want to tell you about mine: includes stories, slide-shows, blog, and excerpts from my nonfiction book by that name about Ethiopia's AIDS orphans. Forgive me if there was some other way to post this comment. We in the Ethiopian adoption world are great admirers of your Chinese adoption community, foundations, and literature, and hope our work, photos, books, and articles will interest you, too.

Best wishes,
Melissa Fay Greene
