November is National Adoption Month!
Adoption is a lifelong journey that takes patience, perseverance and commitment.
Stories are a way to document that journey and to encourage and support others with theirs.
If you have an original, unpublished adoption story that educates, inspires or encourages other members of the adoption triad, we would love to share it on our blog and our communities on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
Send your story, or any questions, to Lawrence, our community manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re particularly interested in stories about adopting a baby, placing a baby for adoption, and how to create strong relationships through open adoption.
Try to keep your story between 500-1000 words (less or more is okay, too, if the story warrants it).
If you have a photo (or photos) to illustrate your piece, please include it.
Send us a brief 1-2 sentence bio and, if you have one, a link to your website, blog or adoption profile.
We prefer stories that focus on open or newborn adoption, but we’re also open to other adoption paths.
We reserve the right to edit pieces and titles for clarity, length and language and to break up the paragraphs. If we need to make more major changes, we’ll ask you.
