You Make the World a Better Place is making the rounds of the adoptasphere. It was sent my way by This Woman’s Work proprietor Dawn Friedman. Thanks, Dawn, for your kind words.
And now, I’m passing this on to…
Baby Love Child–long time friend and supporter of Bastardette, Bastard Nation, and Bastards. BLC is my Theory Girl. I’m just the technician!
Ron Morgan–BB Church’s Funhouse–another longtime friend and supporter. The most righteous Bastard in the whole world! Cynical, street smart, and cool, BB is right out of a James Ellroy novel. He speaks POMO like he’s Judith Butler! He’s also co-organizing A Day For Adoptee Rights.
Anita Field–Bastard Granny Annie. What can I say! From her bed of affliction she’s kickin’ ass in Illinois. Anita is one of the most dedicated bastards I know. We pre-date BN. If Anita can’t do it, nobody can! Recoop soon!
Craig Hickman, author of Fumbling Toward Divinity: The Adoption Scriptures, one of the best adoption books ever! Craig is the uber Bastard writer tying together those inconvenient truths of blackness, bastardy, and queerness through the written word and performance. An absolute powerhouse!
Claud Corrigan D’Arcy–Musings of the Lame–is amazing. punkette, mom, writer, and researcher. Her essay, “The National Council for Adoption: Mothers, Money, Marketing and Madness” (linked on Bastardette’s sidebar) is a great piece of investigative reporting. I wish she were my mom! Oops! She’s young enough to be my kid. Still…
Erik L. Smith. As “obsessed” about baby dumping as I. A great legal mind,Erik is the only person (so far as I know) who has the cajones to file a suit against safe haven laws (Ohio). He’s got all the answers, but TPTB don’t care. If it saves just one…
James Marsh, ChildLaw Blog. Jamie throws himself under the bus every time he posts about child exploitation, pedo adopiton rings, Masha Allen, and abused and dead adoptees. He’s one of the bravest people I’ve ever known.
Kali Coultas–A Day for Adoptee Rights. The new breed of bastard activist, Kali is the co-conspirator…er, I mean organizer… of A Day for Adoptee Rights.
You all make AdoptionLand and the world a better place!
PASS IT ON!
