    Yeah! to Carleton College and St. Olaf College! These are in my hometown — Northfield, Minnesota! So glad these women are there. Makes me even more proud of this town.

  2. Awesome post. I rarely meet other adoptees in passing, let alone had any as professors. Kudos to you guys for compiling lists like these!
