AAC FAMILIES!! This is a great opportunity to share your adoption story with more families around the U.S. If you are interested there is an email at the bottom that you can submit your story, please CC email@example.com if you choose to participate so that we can also use your story for our My Story Monday Blogs.
SPECIAL DOUBLE ISSUE: Celebrate
The next issue of Adoptive Families
is all about you!
We're excited to announce a special double issue, "Celebrate
Adoption: Our Families, Our Stories," and we want contributions
from the AF community. Every family formed through adoption has
a story to tell - and we want to hear every last one!
Adoptive parents, birth family members, and adoptees of all ages,
your personal essays and photos that capture
defining moments for your family, around themes or stages in the
adoption journey like:
Deciding to adopt
Getting "the call" that you'd been matched, or
that the baby was on his way
Meeting your child
Welcome home - first weeks as family
Realizing that a strong bond has taken hold
Finally feeling like a mom or dad
Family traditions, old and new
Mother's Day and Father's Day memories
We also want to see scans or digital files
of your child's adoption announcement, and pages from your
family's scrapbooks and lifebooks, and we'll print a selection in
this keepsake double issue. If you have personal essays or images you'd
like us to consider publishing in the "Celebrate Adoption"
issue, e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org
by April 1.
We can't wait to
read - and showcase - your family's stories and pictures.
