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). To enter, add a comment to this blog post. Limit one comment per person. Contest closes November 30, 2011. See below for full rules.
Rules: No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. Subject to all laws. All entrants must register a valid e-mail address with AdoptiveFamiliesCircle (see Terms and Conditions). Giveaway begins at 10 a.m. EDT on November 1, 2011, and ends at midnight EDT on November 30, 2011. Limit: one (1) entry per person. Approximate value of the prize, one Child of My Heart Pewter Necklace, is $35. Odds of winning are based on the number of eligible entries received. Sweepstakes sponsor: New Hope Media, LLC, 39 W. 37th St., 15th Floor, New York, NY, 10018.
