Ethnically Incorrect Daughter

Sumeia Williams was born in Saigon in 1970, during the Vietnam War. She was brought to the US and adopted by an American soldier and his family. She knows little about her life before her adoption, yet has always felt out of place in the US. Sumeia grew up in a small town in Texas, where she was the only Asian. She blogs about her feelings about being adopted and about never feeling like she fit in.

Ethnically Incorrect Daughter – Why You Should Go

All parents of a transracially adopted children, or those who are considering transracial adoption, should read Sumeia’s blog. It is a very honest look at the difficulties that some adoptees feel when being raised with no connection to their home country and obvious differences in their adoptive country.

Summing Up Ethnically Incorrect Daughter

A very honest and beautifully written blog by an adoptee who has never stopped wondering and looking for her biological mother, and who has never felt like she truly fit in as an American. She regularly ponders questions about her past life that she will likely never get answered. We so often consider only the beautiful parts of adoption, but this blog reminds us that something has to end for a child before an adoption begins.

The Life Of A Wife Of A Wounded Marine

Wife of a Wounded Marine

This is the blog of Karie, a woman whose husband was wounded in Iraq just three months after they were married. She shares the struggles of coping with a recovering husband who has had both physical and emotional challenges since his tour in Iraq. Karie brings an interesting perspective on the war and how military families cope.

Wife of a Wounded Marine– Why You Should Go

Karie’s perspective reminds us that it is not just the soldiers that are affected by war, but that entire families feel the strain of dealing with the aftermath of war, particularly when soldiers are wounded. Her Friday Faces of War column is particularly interesting.  Throughout the blog, Karie shares the challenges and triumphs of a life not quite what she’d envisioned, and remains brutally and commendably honest and open.

Summing Up Wife of a Wounded Marine

Other military families will particularly like this blog, as they’ll find it easy to relate to Karie’s struggles. But the site is great for all of us, as we can see firsthand how our soldiers and their families cope with the life changes brought on by war.
