An Invitation… to National Adoption Awareness Month

We’re a wee bit early — but we do like to plan ahead!

November is National Adoption Awareness Month.  In honor of this, we’d love to fill our blog with stories from guest bloggers sharing their personal adoption experiences during the month of November.

Chrysalis House, Inc. believes in the power of telling our own stories and in learning from the stories of others.  Your words might be the insight another family, adoptive parent, adoptee or birthparent is searching the internet for…

Would you like to share your experience??  We are open to ideas for topics and posts, but here are some suggestions to consider:

Do you have a story about how CHI has helped you build your family?

Do you want to tell the story of how your child(ren) joined your family?

Would you like to share how you celebrate your child’s culture or family of origin?

Are you an adoptee who would like to share your unique story?

Are you an birth parent that’s made an adoption plan for your child?

What lessons have you learned through your adoption experience that others may benefit from?
