    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.

    Congratulations to the winner, AFC member kwebster0807. Here's the memory she shared:
    "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!"

  • Exploring Adoption Through Pretend Play
    Exploring Adoption Through Pretend Play

    Along with tea parties and superheroes, preschool-aged children may incorporate themes like birth and adoption into their play. In the July/August 2011 issue of Adoptive Families, we help parents understand what's behind some common imaginative scenarios, and how to use play to open up adoption discussions.

    Do your kids get creative when exploring adoption or their birth cultures? Share your family's playful scenarios, and follow-up conversations, with fellow parents by posting a comment below.

Are there any movies you'd advise other adoptive families against seeing?

    Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Memories and Traditions in Adoptive Families

    "Mother's Day and Father's Day hold special meaning for all of us, after long, and sometimes excruciating, wait to become parents. For the past two decades, my Mays have been filled with strawberries, pancakes, and warm maple syrup, heartfelt letters, and my gratitude for being called 'Mom' by my two favorite girls in the world. What do these two holidays mean for your family?" wrote Adoptive Families editor Susan Caughman in the May/June 2011 issue.

    Please share your favorite memories and traditions for these special days by posting a comment below.

    And from all the staff at Adoptive Familie and AdoptiveFamiliesCircle, Happy Mother's Day and Happy Father's Day!
