Contest: Where Were You When You Got “The Call”?
THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who shared a family memory for a chance to win a "Roots of Love" pendant.
Congratulations to the winner, AFC member Jaylene. Here's the memory she shared:
"I was a high school choir teacher, and got 'the call' during a rehearsal. I announced my news and had 100 high school kids come crowd around me, jumping up and down and giving me hugs. It was the best feeling in the world! Two days later, we brought home our beautiful little girl."
It's a moment that no adoptive parent ever forgets -- learning that a birth mother has selected you or that a referral is on the way, and that parenthood, finally, is on the horizon. Where were you and what were you doing when you got "The Call"? What was your immediate reaction?
Share one of your family's cherished memories to be entered in a random drawing for the chance to win a "Roots of Love" small silver pendant from Twenty Birds ($60 retail value; pictured at left). To enter, add a comment to this blog post. Limit one comment per person. Contest closes June 11, 2012. See below for full rules.

Giveaway begins at 11 a.m. EDT on May 14, 2012, and ends at midnight EDT on June 11, 2012. Limit: one (1) entry per person. Approximate value of the prize, one "Roots of Love" small silver pendant, is $60. Odds of winning are based on the number of eligible entries received.
