The Adoption Social Times 2

It’s time for our second monthly round-up of all our posts on The Adoption Social.

Thanks to everyone that has read, commented on or shared a post this last month. We’ve had several messages of support and some lovely feedback from both contributors and readers alike. If you have any ideas for posts that you’d like to see on here, then please do drop us a line at

request for tips and advice#WASO
As you might have seen we published a round-up of #WASO posts this month with both of us choosing 3 of our favourite linked posts. We hope to do this every month, to try to give a bit more support, exposure and traffic to some of the bloggers that take part.

Forthcoming themes for March are:
7 March – Friendships
21 March – Recipes – and why they’re important to your family


What’s new?
We launched another new linky. We like to have several on the go at one time, but we know not everyone has time to write a new post for each linky. So ‘From The Archives’ is a new opportunity to link up an old post. Hopefully this’ll mean more people visit some of your older posts that might have missed out on some blog love. If you come across a post you’ve not seen before, I’m sure the blogger would appreciate your comments. We’ll alternate between this new linky and ‘The Things We Do’, so the schedule will look like this.
The Things We Do – 3rd, 17th, 31st March
From The Archives – 10th, 24th March

Britmums Round-Up
We’ve both been avid readers of the Britmums Adoption and Fostering Round-Up since it began, edited by Maryam Lane. In recent times Maryam extended her family and both Sarah and I helped out with editing the round-up when Maryam was unable. Sadly, she’s since decided to step down, but Sarah and I have jointly taken on the role of Editor. Sarah’s done a smashing job this month – here’s her round-up. We’re trying our hardest to include blogs that both link up to #WASO and our other linkys, and blogs that don’t take part in them. So rest assured that even if you don’t link up, we’ll do our best to share your blog in the Britmums round-up. If you know of some fantastic blogs – do let us know so we can include them.

And here’s a final round up of some of our posts this month…

We published an anonymous post from an adopter who often hears suggestions that she’s crazy. What do you think? Would you do it all again?

One adoptive dad is concerned about his relationship with his wife and ask for help in making time for them as a couple.

We met some more bloggers – Family of Five, Grey Street, Our Dear Daughter and Adopt and Keep Calm.

We received several supportive comments on this emotional piece about post adoption support. Have you experienced the same?
