A bit of an announcement

Hello to all our readers.

The Adoption Social is an amazing community resource that we have built up over many years. In that time we have been determined that it would be open to all those affected by adoption and not be commercially sponsored so that it truly belongs to the community and has freedom of speech and diverse opinion built in.

We have been proud and amazed as founders at the response to the website and particularly to the Weekly Adoption Shout Out. Contributors have shared with honesty and openness and in doing so have supported and informed not only other adoptees, adopters and foster carers but also professionals on the the many and complex aspects of adoption.

After much deliberation we have decided it’s time for us to move on and give our precious spare time to our families and to our own #SelfCare

The Open Nest Charity has always supported The Adoption Social and we are also trustees of the charity. With that in mind we are handing over the reins and editorship to the charity. The logowebsite, Facebook and Twitter will carry on as it always has. It will also have a permanent place on the new Open Nest website which is being launched in March.

We hope to continue with contributing ourselves and will be reading contributions as always. Thank you all for your support and please do keep contributing to keep the important resource going.

With much love

Vicki and Sarah

    So glad that you are looking after yourselves and that you’ll still be contributing. I’ve loved reading your posts and meeting other adopters through WASO. Thank you for all your amazing work in making the site what it is.

    Thank you Sarah (who I met a few years ago at a training and who introduced me to this amazing resource!) and Vicky. You have done an incredible job at setting up this creative initiative to support adopters. How right it is that you devote time now to looking after your families and yourselves. I’ve learnt a lot from reading the blogs and posts on this site that have so helped enrich my understanding as a professional. A big thank you.
