Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 241

It’s #WASO time again!

How’s your week been? What are you going to share with us this week?
In our house we had a birthday celebration which went incredibly well, followed by days of challenging behaviour, not helped by us imposing a ban on his favourite YouTuber!

So whether your week’s been better or worse than ours, we’d like to hear about it. Here’s the linky…

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 240

Welcome to a brand new year of the Weekly Adoption Shout Out!

So here we are again, with the original linky for the adoption community and a whole new year to start filling with adoption blogs – whether those are by adopted people, birth families, adoptive families, professionals or anyone else blogging about aspects of adoption.
We’d love to increase the number of people joining in and get back to the brilliant community we’ve had in the past.

If you know of a blogger, in any country, that isn’t already involved in #WASO, please do invite them to join.

Here’s the first linky of 2018!

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 239

Welcome to the final #WASO of 2017

Yes it’s that time of the year where we say goodbye for a while, as we take time to focus on our families. This particular #WASO will be open until 4th January and the next normal weekend #WASO will begin on 5th January.

Forgive me for keeping this post extra short and sweet, but I’m suffering with a lurgy, and exhausted after just 2 days of the children being at home, so without any further ado, here’s the linky…oh, and best wishes to you all for Christmas and the New Year x

Whatever it is, we’d love it if you linked up to the Weekly Adoption Shout Out – the original adoption based blog link-up.

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 236

Is it too early to say ‘Seasons Greetings’?

We’re getting closer to the final #WASO of 2017, with this, the first shout out of December. So I think perhaps we’ll offer a few optional themes over the next few weeks. How about the first being ‘Presents or Presence’. You don’t have to use the theme, but it’s there for inspiration if you want it.

  • Remember, type in or copy and paste your blog url carefully
  • Share your favourite posts on Twitter and Facebook and use the hashtag #WASO
  • Comment and let the blogger know you found them via #WASO
  • Check back to see what new posts have been added, check them out too.

The Weekly Adoption Shout Out is live every week from early Friday to late Sunday (GMT), make sure you come back next week and link up too. And if you have any questions, drop us a line at
