Britmums Round-Up
This month I’ve (Vicki) edited the Britmums Adoption and Fostering Round-Up. Take a look here, many of our regular contributors are included. We really want to include as many good adoption and fostering blogs as possible, and we’re really lucky that we get to read lots of them already. But if you know of any other great blogs that we haven’t included then do let us know at

Britmums conference
Last year both Sarah and I (supported by The Open Nest) attended this massive two day conference for parent bloggers – just a week after The Adoption Social launched. This year, we’re doing it again! We’re looking forward to getting together, meeting other bloggers, developing our blogging skills and passing it all on to you too (oh and of course, there’s the goody bag too). If you’re coming along and we don’t already know about it – let us know, perhaps we could arrange a meet-up?

Exciting news
We do indeed have some exciting news, but we can’t quite share it all with you just yet. The bit I think we can say is that we’re hoping to arrange an Adoption Social family social – in a safe space with trained, experienced support, in August. If you’d be interested in this, please let us know so we can get a feel for numbers.

The other exciting news…well, you’ll just have to keep checking back for a little announcement soon!

And finally, here are a few of the posts we’ve published on The Adoption Social this month:
– An interesting anonymous post on feeling Second Best as a parent, this anonymous poster wanted the view of adoptees.

– We’ve met Mr Adoption Journey Blog, On the road of adoption, Suddenly Mummy and 3 Bees and a Honey in our popular Meet The Blogger Series.LGBTAFW-header2
– Following National LGBT Adoption Week, we published a quick round-up of some LGBT adoption bloggers.
– A great post from Gareth Marr on Pupil Premium Plus. We’re really looking forward to a follow-up. What did you think?
– Something a bit different – a review and suggestions of music for in the car. Are your favourites on the list?

– Sarah and Vicki were both featured in a book some time ago, here they share their contributions to that book – each in 100 words.
