Together for Adoption 2012: win a registration

 

 

 

 

 

Adoption changed our lives. A couple of years ago, I wrote a series of posts telling some of our family’s adoption story. It begins here.

We knew lots of people who had adopted, and their experiences had taught us a lot. What I didn’t know, though, was how much we still would be learning now, 16 years into being an adoptive family.

That’s what I plan to talk about when I speak at Together for Adoption 2012 in Atlanta, September 14-15–What I Wish I’d Known.

The organizers have graciously given me registrations to share with 6 of you. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Visit the Together for Adoption website and look over the conference information. If you subscribe to the Together for Adoption blog, that earns you an additional entry.
  2. Use your social media outlets to tell others about this chance to win a registration. Each additional social medium earns you an additional entry into the drawing. For example, if you were to link to this contest post from your blog and from Twitter and from Facebook, that would be 3 entries. (If you don’t use any social media, you may use email to send a bunch of friends the link to this blog post.)
  3. Comment once at this post to let me know you have completed #1 and #2 and to report any of the optional extras you’ve completed.
  4. Deadline is 11:59 pm cst, Monday, June 18.Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living through the Rediscovery of Abba Father

I hope I’ll see you in Atlanta.
