Adoption Awareness Month

November is National Adoption Awareness Month.


Obviously this is a subject that is near and dear to my heart, and since November is also Baby Blakely is Coming Home Month, I am trying to prepare some blog posts in advance about the topic of adoption that I will be posting all month long in November.

I'd love your help. 

Are there any specific adoption topics that you would like to learn more about? 

Do you have any adoption related questions that I can answer or find someone to answer?  Remember, I am pretty much an open book, so ask away!

Do you have a story about adoption that you would like to share with my readers?

Please comment below and thanks in advance for your help with this!

  1. I have a few ideas...fundraising ideas, encouraging Bible verses, how to educate people on adoption, and finally acceptance by family members....

    I would not mind writing something. You write very beautiful...but I could share our adoption journey this far. Shannonchristel@gmail.com is my email.

  2. I would like to know more about the home study process. This is the part that is freaking me out the most and makes me think "they will never give us a baby". Also, any insight on open adoption you might have would be fantastic also!

    1. Good idea. The Home Study process can feel SO overwhelming, but it actually is not that hard. Thanks! XOXO

  3. How about some links to adoption resources! I might have a few I could recommend... :)

  4. I am totally a sponge and willing to listen to any great advice and information. Ultimately I would like to know where to start, what resources to look at, and even what books to possibly read. I don't think my husband and I are in a good place to adopt right now but I know that I want to adopt a child at some point. I also was trying to find a Bible study on adoption but couldn't find anything. A wide array of resources would be awesome to have :)

  7. I would love to hear about the agency you use, your experience with them, how you chose them, things to look for or things to avoid. Any tips you wish someone had shared with you when you were starting out on your journey.

  8. I just happened to find your blog and think this is such a great idea! I am a birth mom and placed my little girl for adoption a little over a year ago. I would love to help you out and give you a birth moms perspective. And also help answer some questions on open adoption. Adoption is such an amazing thing and it has completely changed my life. I would love to help those that have any questions. Let me know if your wanting a birth moms side. :)
