Start an Adoption Blog
Blogging is an activity that allows people to share their perspectives in a unique format on the Web. A blog is usually very personal, which makes it the perfect platform for posting reflections and photos on everything you do this month (and beyond, if you choose). Maybe your blog will be dedicated to raising awareness of an adoption topic that's important to your family or it can be a simple digital scrapbook of sorts. It's free to make a basic blog via a variety of websites, such as Blogger, Tumblr, Posterous, and Wordpress. All you'll need is an e-mail and a clever blog title. Take today to brainstorm a name for the blog and try to get everyone involved in thinking of things to post to the blog every day this month.
My Adoption Blog
I started a personal adoption blog to keep my friends and family updated on our adoption. I figured a web page that outlined the process was easier than constantly explaining it on the phone. What I didn't expect was the network of other adopting mothers that I would encounter. And they have been a Godsend. I no longer feel like I'm going through this journey alone, because I can read about other people's experiences, joys, and frustrations. It is so lovely when I get comments from a mother who can relate to what I'm sharing.
