Suz, THANK YOU for rooming again - I had a great time last year, and am looking forward to it again already!

Daniel, hot dog, I get to meet you!! Congratulations on your paper being accepted - what's the topic?

Thanks! I'm looking forward to it.

My topic will be: "Islamophobia and Adoption: Who Are the Civilized?"; I'll be taking a look at the movement of evangelicals and now Muslims who advocate for adoption based on false readings of the Holy Books, and how this is used as a foreign policy battering ram against countries seen as vulnerable to accusations of "backwardness" and thus economic predation. Connecting the economic and political dots, like I usually do (to nobody's amusement)....

Will hopefully see you there!

I will be there, on a panel. My topic is a history of birthmother activism. Easy, since I have been involved since the 70s. I have not gone to this conference for the last few years, but look forward to this one.
