Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 241

It’s #WASO time again!

How’s your week been? What are you going to share with us this week?
In our house we had a birthday celebration which went incredibly well, followed by days of challenging behaviour, not helped by us imposing a ban on his favourite YouTuber!

So whether your week’s been better or worse than ours, we’d like to hear about it. Here’s the linky…


Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 240

Welcome to a brand new year of the Weekly Adoption Shout Out!

So here we are again, with the original linky for the adoption community and a whole new year to start filling with adoption blogs – whether those are by adopted people, birth families, adoptive families, professionals or anyone else blogging about aspects of adoption.
We’d love to increase the number of people joining in and get back to the brilliant community we’ve had in the past.

If you know of a blogger, in any country, that isn’t already involved in #WASO, please do invite them to join.

Here’s the first linky of 2018!

We’d like to hear all about it in your latest blog posts – or maybe you could share an image on Twitter that sums it all up? Just add the link below in the form, and it’ll be part of #WASO.



Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 236

Is it too early to say ‘Seasons Greetings’?

We’re getting closer to the final #WASO of 2017, with this, the first shout out of December. So I think perhaps we’ll offer a few optional themes over the next few weeks. How about the first being ‘Presents or Presence’. You don’t have to use the theme, but it’s there for inspiration if you want it.

  • Remember, type in or copy and paste your blog url carefully
  • Share your favourite posts on Twitter and Facebook and use the hashtag #WASO
  • Comment and let the blogger know you found them via #WASO
  • Check back to see what new posts have been added, check them out too.

The Weekly Adoption Shout Out is live every week from early Friday to late Sunday (GMT), make sure you come back next week and link up too. And if you have any questions, drop us a line at theadoptionsocial@gmail.com

Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 232

It’s time for the Weekly Adoption Shout Out!

Hello and welcome to week 232 of the Weekly Adoption Shout Out. This week signals the start of what can be a difficult few months for some of us. Schools focus so much on Christmas – nativity plays, church services, Christmas fairs, carol concerts and more, that familiar, safe routines turn into a bit of a jumble. Christmas can be a really hard and emotional time and so having to think about it months in advance presents challenges.
Bonfire Night this weekend brings more challenges for anxious children and poor sleepers, struggling with the sound of fireworks all around.
And of course, in the UK our clocks have gone back so routine changes a little as we all adjust to differing light and allow our body clocks to change too.

If you have any handy tips on how to cope with the coming months and mentions of Christmas, please blog about it and share it with us through #WASO.



Weekly Adoption Shout Out #WASO Week 229

WASO time again!

Hello there, how has your week been? We’d like to hear about it in your latest blog post, so please do write about it and share it with us by linking up below.

If you’re more of a reader, but have been tempted to set up your own blog, then why not dip your toe in the water by writing an anonymous (or not) piece for The Adoption Social. If you like it, perhaps you might then consider writing a regular blog of your own? Just drop us an email if you’re interested…

Anyway, here’s the linky…
