Summary of the Week -- New Feature!

Alphabet Soup Child is introducing a new feature to the blog, beginning this week.  "Summary of the Week" will appear every Friday morning.  It will be a brief rundown of news stories and other items related to our alphabet soup children that just happened to catch my eye during the week.  If you have any interesting news stories to share, please add them into the comments!  Also, feel free to nominate stories/blog posts/anything you think our readers would be interested in.
