The Lifelong Journey of Adoption: Do you remember?
August 23, 2010

I don’t know if you had a chance to read Thomas Friedman’s piece in the New York Times on August 7th. The column entitled “Steal this Movie” was about a new Israeli documentary, “Precious Life,” by the Gaza reporter for Israel’s TV Channel 10 news, Shlomi Eldar.

July 21, 2010
Picture a beautiful wooded campground in the Berkshires, on a clear, clean lake; rustic cabins; and a rec hall with games, ping pong tables, and snacks. Now picture 16 friends gathering in this wonderful space for three days of boating, swimming, hiking, great BBQs, and s'mores.
