Adoptive Families Magazine and YOU

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 erin@aacadoption.com if you choose to participate so that we can also use your story for our My Story Monday Blogs. 
SPECIAL DOUBLE ISSUE: Celebrate Adoption

cover-shadowThe 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, please share 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
  • Brother/sister moments
  • 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 submissions@adoptivefamilies.com by April 1.

We can't wait to read - and showcase - your family's stories and pictures.
