Awareness

“Our greatest obstacles with respect to adoption are indifference, lack of understanding and lack of education.” – Governor General David Johnston


Personal stories of adoption are very powerful tools to normalize the idea of adoptive families and help people think honestly about the joys and pitfalls of adoption. If your life has been touched by adoption, we would love to hear your story.

Write a blog about the experiences you’ve had with adoption and what message you want to send people about those experiences. Send it in to use and we’ll post it as a blog for Adoption Awareness Month.

Not Sure Where to Start?

We’ve put together a Blogging Tip Sheet for Sharing Your Story, click here to download.

Details

Submission Deadline: Friday November 11th.
We may accept blogs after this but cannot guarantee they will be posted in November.  Feel free to send in earlier!

Questions or Ready to Submit?
