You Knew You Were a Mom or Dad When… Contest
THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who shared one of their family's adoption memories for a chance to win a beautiful keepsake necklace.
"I knew I was a mother when I was waking every two hours for feeding. I was always a person who loved my sleep. Now I can't tell you the last time I slept in…. I love being a mommy!"
The moment a tiny hand wrapped around your finger. The first time you kissed a boo boo. When you realized you could call your mom a grandmother. When did you know, in your heart, that you were a mom or dad?
In honor of National Adoption Month, in November, all AdoptiveFamiliesCircle members who tell us about the moment they knew they were a mom or dad will be automatically entered in a random drawing for the chance to win a Child of My Heart Pewter Necklace from Deirdre & Company ($35 retail value; pictured at left).
