Giveaway!


Welcome! We're so glad you found us. We're new, as you can see, but kicking things off with a bang here at United For Adoption. In the near future, we'll be building this blog and helping you understand who we are, what we're doing, and why we love adoption.

In the meantime, how would you like to curl up on the sofa with a good movie this holiday season? Even better, how would you like to get the movie for free?


We're giving away five copies of Disney's "The Odd Life of Timothy Green." Movies like this are a great tool for opening a discussion about adoption. The giveaway starts today and ends at midnight on 11/27/12. Winners will be announced 11/28/12, and must respond by 12/2/12 with their addresses. DVD prizes will be shipped 12/4/12, straight from Disney.

Want a sample?


Disney’s “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” one of the year’s most uplifting and enchanting family films, springs up on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD, High Definition Digital and On-Demand platforms on December 4, 2012. It’s the perfect, must-own family-film for audiences of all ages to enjoy and snuggle up to this coming holiday season.

From Academy Award-nominated writer/director Peter Hedges, and starring Golden Globe® winner Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, Oscar® winner Dianne Wiest and CJ Adams as Timothy Green, comes this highly imaginative story (written by Ahmet Zappa) about a happily married couple who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. Then one stormy night young Timothy shows up on their doorstep. Soon they and the small town in which they live learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts.
