This weeks challenge is not a hard one because since it is Thanksgiving it’s all about being thankful. Show your birthmother, agency, social worker, etc that you are thankful for how they played a part in your adoption experience. You can look back at some of the previous challenges if you need some ideas. Happy Thanksgiving! From the Staff at Family to Family
Today is National Adoption Day!! Congratulations to all of the adoptive families that finalized their adoptions today. The courthouses will be packed with very happy families and what better day to officially become a forever family than on National Adoption Day. The staff at Family to Family are celebrating the many placements we have done over the years and want to thank all of our adoptive families, birth families, attorneys, social workers, and everyone else that help make adoption possible.
This week your challenge is to talk to your child about their adoption journey. Tell them their story, show them pictures of their birthparents or buy an age appropriate book about adoption to read to your child. For more information on how to talk with your child about adoption please email Jennifer@fam2fam.org.
Every week we are posting a new challenge for families to honor National Adoption Awareness Month. This week’s challenge is to give back to your adoption agency who helped you complete your family through adoption. Some examples would be giving a donation, supporting a fundraiser, volunteering, or writing a testimonial for the agency to use about your experience. Show your adoption agency your appreciation and support of their work and efforts this week.
November is National Adoption Awareness Month. The staff at Family to Family Adoptions works hard all year but this month we are presenting each week with a challenge to you. This first week in November we challenge all adoptive parents to remember their birth parents and send at least 5 updated pictures of your child. If you adopted through our agency please feel free to just email them to us and we will pass them along to your birthparents. Your child’s biological parents will be so glad that you thought of them. Check our blog each week this month to see the next challenge.
