#Memorybox reminder

So the summer holidays are coming to an end…MBbadge

Have you had a good one? Bad one? Or indifferent?
We hope you’ve been able to store up some good memories, even if you’ve had a challenging few months. They give us something to hold onto when the struggles seem too much.

So today’s post is just a reminder to let you know that our Summer #Memorybox linky is still up and live, and will be for a few more weeks yet. Please come and share your positive moments, no matter how small or big. You can link up blog posts (like usual) or even tweets (here’s the tutorial on how) and we’ll share them when we can.

To save you clicking through or scrolling back through the posts, here’s the linky, so just add your memory below:

The Adoption Social Times

TAStimesOur monthly round-up of all things Adoption Social

Just a few weeks ago, the closure of BAAF was announced. One of the big questions this raised was ‘what about National Adoption Week?’, certainly amongst the adoption community on Twitter.
This year, National Adoption Week falls in October, rather than November, and during that week The Adoption Social will be supporting adoptees, rather than supporting the usual ‘adopter recruitment drive’ that we feel usually happens. As part of this we’re also supporting The Open Nest’s next event, which will be adoptee focused and will take place in National Adoption Week at the Foundling Museum. More information from The Open Nest on that soon.
We’ll be seeking guest posts from adopted people that week, so if you’re interested in writing, please do email us at theadoptionsocial@gmail.com

Weekly Adoption Shout Out
It’s been pretty quiet recently on The Weekly Adoption Shout Out, but we do expect that during the Summer. But do remember that all previous WASO links are still available on The Adoption Social (as long as those links are still live on those blogs), just click on Weekly Adoption Shout Out up the top there…you can always catch up and have a read.

Forthcoming themes:
28 August – Books
11 September – Confidence
25 September – In ten years time…

Thanks to everyone who took part in last months #TASPIC challenge of #smallthings, we’re well in the throes of our latest challenge #summertime, please do come and share your own #TASPIC images either on a blog, Instagram or on Twitter. We love to see them and round up each month – here’s the latest round-up.

Summer is a busy time, so we appreciate you might not have the time to blog a whole post. I know I don’t! But if you have a summery snippet that you’d like to share, a good memory, a positive moment, a photo, or anything else to share, then do come and link up to #MemoryBox which is open all Summer and a bit beyond too. Here’s the linky…

Twitter chat
A few weeks ago we hosted a chat on Twitter to gain feedback on the Adoption Support Fund. We presented this as a Storify round-up and gave it to our friends on the Expert Advisory Group who will take it back to the others on the group. Here’s the round-up for those that missed the chat.

Off to La Rosa
Next week we’re off to La Rosa campsite – home of The Open Nest, where we’re looking forward to meeting some more of you. We’ve got respite for the adults, and activities for the children, but won’t always have WiFi so forgive us if we don’t tweet/post/email back as often as we usually do.

Some posts you might have missed:

This piece by @Ivavnuk on Basic Goodness was powerful.

We had a couple of reviews – one on a book, Forever Fingerprints and one on a course, an NVR course.

Suddenly Mummy shared her experiences of reactions to second time adoption.
