The Adoption Social Times


Yes, it’s time for your regular round-up of news from the world of The Adoption Social…

Weekly Adoption Shout Out
It’s great to see so many of you joining in with #WASO – even through the Easter Holidays when you’re bound to have been busier, and throughout our own break and quietness on social media – so a big thank you.
We’ve got a themed week this week, and here’s a heads up on forthcoming themes too:
15 April – Finding inspiration
29 April – Unexpected support
13 May – This week I…

We’ll be publishing our Top 3 WASO very soon – make sure you check to see if you’re included.

Guest editor
Throughout March we were pleased to welcome @craftikitty as our guest editor. Sadly, due to our unscheduled Easter break, we weren’t able to publish as much as we’d hoped from @craftikitty, but we’re pleased to have had her input into themes during the month and we’re looking forward to having another guest editor in future.

Our TASpic theme was picked by @craftikitty this month, and she chose #mademesmile. We’ll have a round-up of the pictures very soon, and we’ll announce the next theme shortly too. Don’t forget to get involved – just share your photos on Twitter, your blog, Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #taspic and the theme of the moment.

Fancy another #TASchat?
Well, get 28th April in your diary, 9pm GMT on Twitter. Given that our #WASO theme that week is ‘Unexpected Support’ that’ll also be the theme for the chat. So have a think about where you get unexpected support? Why was it so unexpected?

We still want your feedback
We know we’ve been a little quiet recently with illness and family taking over our time. But we’re back, and we’re looking forward to improving The Adoption Social and developing it over the next 12 months. We set the site up for you, so if you’ve got any ideas about what you’d like to see more or less of, other things you’d like to do, meet-ups (though we did a poll a while ago and found that our community is VERY s-p-r-e-a-d out and not neccesarily conducive to easy regional meet-ups), conferences, learning, posts, etc etc – Let us know! You can reach us on our facebook page, twitter or by email at
