As we’ve done historically during Adoption Awareness month, we are enthusiastic to post real life stories throughout the month of November. We are now soliciting stories from families willing to share their words, experiences and inspirations. In the past, we’ve found that these stories have stirred up great conversations and we look forward to further creating awareness… of how unique each adoption experience is…of what it’s been like for these people to have “claimed” one another and built a permanent family together.
Taking the lead from a comment on our last blog post – we have asked several families who have been an adoptive family for 5 or more years to share what it has been like for them. We are so thankful to those who have said yes and are hopeful that more will follow suit. We know it’s hard and challenging but these wisdoms are truly inspiring. We feel that real life example is the best way to celebrate Adoption & Awareness! Experiential examples may be just the validation another family needs to follow a path they, too, feel led to explore!
If you would like to share your own story, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Although we have prioritized asking families who have finalized over five years ago.. who doesn’t love a relatively new placement story, too? There are no limits to the length of love..or the length of the story, etc. Names can be changed to protect confidentiality as needed. Stories have come from our clients in the past, but we are open to those from outside our agency as well.
Be sure to visit during November as we share several stories of domestic, foster and international adoption…
“Children never outgrow the need for family” is a perfect slogan for National Adoption Awareness Month. If you feel the mission resonating with you, please contact our office to discuss this potential. We can be reached at 559.229.9862 or at http://www.chrysalishouse.com.
