Haunting but Beautiful Stories

Until recently, I had known Katherine Ozment only as the easy-to-like wife of my good friend and former colleague Michael Greenstone.

Then I discovered her Web site, which contains examples of her writing. She has an amazing gift. Check out “Winter of Discontent,” “The Last Hurrah,” and everything else in between.

But make sure you have some time to spare because, if you are like me, once you get started, it will be hard to stop reading.

Totally on topic, because I want to tell Katherine how truly wonderful her writing is. "Winter of Discontent" had me sobbing, "The Last Hurrah" had me laughing out loud. I can't wait to read the rest of her stories & articles. What an amazing gift is right!

Totally off topic, but since this topic did not have many comments, I figured it might get noticed. Economics of Adoption: specifically International, China Adoption. Currently the wait is > 2 years: in another 6 months it will likely be > 3. This is emotionally tough for families who went into the process that were told 9-12 *months*, but how is it affecting the agencies that provide so much support to the kids in the orphanages?
