The winner will receive a copy of Loved by Choice: True Stories that Celebrate Adoption* by Susan Horner and Kelly Fordyce Martindale.
Whether it's the joy-filled decision to welcome a child into your home or the difficult decision to place your child in another's arms - adoption is making the choice to love unselfishly and unconditionally.
Loved by Choice offers a clear and uplifting look at adoption through true stories told from virtually every perspective. Birth parents, adoptive parents, grandparents, adopted children, and families enhanced by special needs, transracial, and inter-country adoptions are among those who share their joys and difficulties. The collection is a tender celebration of adoption, led by those who understand it best.
Want to enter? It's easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy. Just send us an email answering the following questions that we'll use in an upcoming article (leaving a comment will not count as an entry):
For birth families: Do you commemorate your placement date in some way? Why or why not? If you do, are others included or is it a personal thing? Has it evolved over time? Tell us about it.
For adoptive families: Do you celebrate your child's "Gotcha Day?" Why or why not? If you do, which day do you celebrate: placement or finalization? What do you do to commemorate the occasion? Has it changed as your child has grown older? Tell us about it.
We'll keep this giveaway open through next Friday (1/25) and announce our randomly-selected winner on Saturday, January 26th.
