We were deeply honored and grateful to hear Dr. Alexander share her story of being a birthmom for the very first time publicly at the Conference last week. It was an incredibly powerful and moving session that challenged and equipped the professionals and all in attendance, for better work in the field. Dr. Alexander's research with focus groups illuminated the importance of normalizing and de-stigmatizing adoption in communities of color, and offered key insights for how professionals can better serve these communities. This was one of the most impactful sessions of the entire Conference. We are humbled that Dr. Alexander, and the other panelists representing different parts of the adoption triad from communities of color, generously gave of their time and expertise to support and strengthen adoption in this way. #ncfacon2021

Single Parent Adoption: The Process and Experience of Adopting Unpartnered - National Council For Adoption

An increasing number of adoptive families are single parent households where children have found permanency and are thriving with a Mom or Dad only. To learn how to best support these adoptive families, and provide guidance for singles considering adoption, we spoke with experienced single adoptive parents to understand their process and learn from their expertise. This issue of the #AdoptionAdvocate also includes important tips for professionals in assessing single prospective adoptive parents and assisting them pre and post adoption.

Adoption and Foster Parents. This book seeks to provide an honest discussion on the issues they face along with practical help and direction to support their journey. The book is available for presale via my website www.lyvoncampbell.com Would you please share this on your page and register to attend the conference? https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-forever-family-conference-2020-tickets-122892421541?ref=eios
Just a note to say THANK YOU for all you do! Here's a short inspirational story on our adoption and a tribute to all the birth families out there. THANKS AGAIN and keep up the great work! https://www.facebook.com/776975046035335/videos/396595224642292

Good morning friends! Just wanted to invite you to sign up for the 2018 CUB retreat! In case you don’t know, CUB, or Concerned United Birthparents, Inc. is an organization that began in the late 70’s when birthmothers decided to start speaking out and sharing their stories with the world. The result was powerful and has shown the nation and the world what it means to be a birthparent and that all voices in the adoption triad matter! I am very blessed to be working with CUB to promote the upcoming retreat which will take place in the Tampa area (Safety Harbor, FL) in early October! The keynote will be none other than Ann Fessler, adoptee and author of the powerful book “The Girls Who Went Away.” This story recounts the experiences of nearly a hundred women who surrendered their children to adoption in the era before Roe v. Wade. This retreat will also include special topics, a chance to network and fellowship with authors, organization leaders, meet members of all sides of the adoption triad (CUB now serves adoptees and adoptive parents too!), and make new friends who I can assure you will be there for you for a lifetime! I have had such an amazing time since I became a CUB member and started helping with outreach and the promotion of family preservation resources. If you would like to become a member and find out more about the retreat, check out the event page below or visit cubirthparents.org! Oh, and btw, my birthmother happens to live in the Tampa area too, so I’m excited to attend this retreat as mother and son!!!! Hope you’ll consider joining us! ❤️
I was referring to no. 118 no 119 which was discussing the Hague Agreement and how things have evolved.
I would caution any birth mother about family members who will do anything to interfere with a successful relationaship with their adopted child.This has happened to me years ago. It has been a disaster.
Just wanted to let you know that we have posted and will be posting links to some of your youtube videos on our social media accounts during this last week and in the coming week(s). Just thought you'd like to know! Thanks! Unplanned Good
If you are an adoptee or know an adoptee, would you please consider taking (&/or sharing) a #survey for adoptees (12 & older) designed by an adoptee?! It takes 10 min to complete & is designed so identities remain anonymous to encourage open & honest answers. It is available to take until 10/9. Every experience is uniquely valuable to the #adoption conversation so the greater the responses, the richer the content! Thank you in advance!
How can I send my bby for adoption
