July? Already?

It's been a busy spring. I haven't had much time to blog (read or write), but i'm here. The 3 yr old's most recent funny ramblings was a few days ago, playing in the backyard hand-me-down pool. She said, "Mom? You have 2 choices: Breast milk or breast water." I asked her, "Where does the breast milk and water come from?" She replied, "The breast milk came from my nipples and the breast water came from a pig."

The baby has been amusing and cute as can be. One of my friends calls her Bambi-eyes. She's babbling more, blowing raspberries, rolling over, sitting up with ease and eating bananas.

We went to the cabin for the 1st time of the season and did a myriad of chores to open it up for the summer. I used to be ambivalent about the cabin as a tweenager (nothing like going to the cabin, hanging with the 'rents), but the older i get, the more i appreciate it. I love showing the kids cabin stuff: picking rocks, swimming, jumping off the boat, roasting marshmallows, etc, etc.

How come only one of them has a life jacket? Is it because she's the favorite?

(HAHAHA... Oh man, that Scooter gets me laughing often... thanks.)

So. I AM ALMOST convinced that you have the cutest kids in the Twin Cities. Almost. To be sure, I'd have to see our 3 year olds together... of course, the cuteness factor may be too much for all to bear.

(every other weekend is a sure-bet for us...)

No, not because she's the favorite. IT's because we have already taught the baby to swim.

They are pretty darn cute, it's true. Which w/e's are "yours?" I'd love to get together sometime. I'm sort of out of the loop as to what the heck is going on with you...(you have my email).

Hello Lissy Jo,

I'm sorry because this comment is not directly toward your post. I am hoping, however, that you will take the time to read this, and make a future post based on the following information.

My name is Myriam, I am a French adoptee born in Korea and I am currently interning at the Global Overseas Adoptees' Link (GOA'L), located in Seoul, South Korea. I am writing to you with intentions of both providing you with information on, as well as asking for your assistance with our current campaign.

As you may already know, GOA'L has been supporting overseas adoptees born in Korea since 1998. We are now lobbying for overseas adoptees' right to hold a dual citizenship.

At the bottom, I will include a link leading toward documents about our campaign. There is an information package which contains the specific details about our campaign. Within, issues such as military service and tax responsibilities are outlined. The second document is the petition form. We are hoping to obtain 50,000 signatures by December 2008. To reach this goal, we are contacting organizations and individuals connected with Korea, or with adoption in general, in order to get their help, as this is an issue that could concern all adoptees in the world who are denied dual citizenship. We hope to set a precedent so that other countries forbidding dual nationality could also liberalize their legislation.

We would greatly appreciate your support in this campaign. The info package and sign sheet are available at this address:

Thank you so much!

Campaign Coordinator
