General submission tips

  • Please no slander, no self-promotion, no agency/organization-promotion, no graphic images or foul or offensive language.
  • Make sure your words uphold the idea that adoption can be a loving thing. But still be honest and truthful.
  • If you send us a photo, the larger the better and preferably horizontal.

Submission tips for open letters

  • What’s an open letter? It’s a letter intended for an individual but read by a wide audience.
  • We’re not facilitating reunions, instead we’re publishing the letters on as a way to convey the hope of adoption.
  • No pictures, just words. You don’t have to include your actual name, but you can if you want.
  • Preferably less than 800 words.

Submission tips for narratives

  • Please keep narratives under 1,200 words. 
  • If you’ve got a video longer than 10 minutes, contact us.
