On Saturdays from now on I’ll be posting my favorite articles of the week from other bloggers for your reading enjoyment.

Elora Nicole is attending The Idea Camp conference on adoption and orphan care this week and has posted her notes from the early sessions: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10, part 11. Yes, it’s a lot of reading, and you’ll want to digest it slowly, but these notes from the speakers are firing me up to do more. This is a conference we might be checking out in the future.
