Tell Me A Story

November is National Adoption Month, and I would love to hear from your children!

Do you have a child who was adopted and who would like to share their story? Does your child have a voice they would like heard, anonymously or not? If not a story, does your child write poetry or plays or essays relating to their adoption experience, their life as an adopted child/sibling, their hopes and dreams for the future, or their daily struggles? Or, do they have artwork that they can scan and send to me? If so, I would like to hear from them.

In celebration of National Adoption Month, I would like to publish your child’s writing/art. I don’t care if it is happy, sad, angry, or any other emotion. I just believe it is very important for our children who have been adopted to have their voices heard.

Or, do you have birth siblings who want to have a say about having siblings who have been adopted? I would like to hear their viewpoints also.

Please encourage your children to contact me via email or through a comment on this post. I will only share as much information as they and you want shared.

So much attention is paid to supporting parents who adopt, and I believe it is just as important to attend to supporting children who have been adopted. I look forward to hearing from you and your children!
