Who Are You Also Known As?

Who Are You Also Known As?: Like many adopted people I never had a simple answer to the question, "Where did I come from?" For most people raised by their biological parents, this question can be answered by simply gazing at their parent's face. There in the turn of a nose and the curve of the eye they are reminded of where they came from. bounded by blood, a part of a human continuum passed from mother to daughter, from father to son.

Vote for Jenny!

Let's get Jenny Bowen from Half the Sky lots votes so she can carry the 2008 Olympic torch!

Our volunteers in Wuhan had a great idea. It may be possible for some of our Half the Sky children to carry the Olympic torch next year. I've entered a contest sponsored by the China Daily Newspaper and, if I can get enough votes from netizens all over the world, I may be able to have that honor. If it happens, I will run with 8 children from 8 orphanages in China. Believe me, I am no runner. But I would dearly love to give the children a place at the party.

Click here to vote.
