Happy National Adoption Awareness Month!
For the last 3 years, I have made an effort to post about adoption everyday during National Adoption Awareness Month as a kind of blogging blitz and I have encouraged you to do the same. Let’s do it again, shall we?
Last year I read about some of you feeling guilty, apologizing or becoming discouraged because you missed a day or something like that. Shenanigans. This is a guilt-free zone. To prove that to you, I am posting this on November 2nd. That’s right. I already missed a day. Resist the temptation to be hard on yourself for something silly and instead, put together some posts this month that mean something to you.
The challenge is not to write every single day. The challenge I am issuing is to just make an extra effort to write about adoption this month.
Let’s dispel some myths. Let’s share our stories–the good and the bad. Let’s talk about this process that is so important to us–what we love and what we would love to change.
For the last 3 years, I have learned so much during National Adoption Awareness Month from all sides of adoption. This is not an activity just for adoptive mommy bloggers, although I hope they will join in too! Everyone is invited even if you have no personal ties to adoption.
Here are my 2010 National Adoption Month Posts.
Here is a calendar of activities to do in your area every day this month from Adoptive Families Magazine. (This is last year’s calendar and last year’s post.)
