#MemoryBox – 10/06/15

Today we welcome back the linky which bursts with positivity, yes it’s #Memorybox.

MBbadgeThis linky is a place for you to share all the magical moments from recent times. Those tiny steps of progress you are making or a special little something that happened for you or your child. We know that many of the things we see as good bits are the norm for other families. So here you can share and we will all appreciate just how much it means to you.

So did your child remember to do something that they usually forget or did they say something that made you smile. Maybe you managed a tricky situation particularly well or you and your other half shared a bit of time out. Hopefully you get the picture, we are looking for you to tell us about the good bits.

These do not need to be long blog posts, sometimes a picture says it all. You can share your blog posts here in our linky or share your pictures on twitter with the #bestbits.

So come on everyone, link up and if you enjoy doing this link up and people join in we could run it as a regular feature.

This linky does look a little bit different to our normal #WASO linky because it allows for images to be displayed in the list below. It’s very easy to use, just follow the instructions.


From a twitter discussion last week it came apparent that we needed an antidote for all the very serious and difficult conversations we’ve had recently around CPV. Whilst no one would want to the take away from the importance of discussing topics such as child to parent violence, we are very proud of the all those who contributed to our Adoption Sore Points week, we want to offer a balanced view of adoption.

So whilst many of us have very challenging times in our lives, we also make tiny and sometimes huge steps of progress. We now want to celebrate these moments, you know #theBestBits. So here is what we propose.

MB polaroidWay back in the day, when The Adoption Social first began (we are almost two you know) we had a weekly linky which was supposed to do just this job, it was called Memory Box. We asked people to link up blog posts about the magical moments, the bits that made you smile, the reminders of why everything is worth it. It didn’t need to be a lengthy post, sometimes a picture says it all. And with that in mind people didn’t need to have blogs they could tweet a picture with the #memorybox to join in.


So next week we will bring back #Memorybox. The link will be live on Wednesday and stay open until Sunday. So get those positive posts at the ready. Here’s an example of one I did earlier….image


As well as this we will hold a twitter chat next Thursday 11th June  9pm GMT all about #theBestBits #TASchat, so we look forward to lots of positive inspirational chat!

We do try very hard to give a good mix of light and shade and that is why we also run features like #Taspic for people to join in with. A little bit of fun. Find out more about June’s #Taspic here and get sharing those cheery #yellow shots.

And finally, just to remind all, we are here to support you, and if you have suggestions or thought on things you would like to see on our site, you can email us theadoptionsocial@gmail.com
