We’ve stumbled upon some great adoption stories, articles and videos in the past week or so. We wanted to make sure you saw them, too...
Last Thursday, we had the joy of hanging out with about 400 of our closest friends at the Southern Social. The Southern Social is a series of free concerts meant to promote local music, good food, and help raise money for people doing some good in the world.
Fun Fact—Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12, however Birth Mother’s Day is the day before, Saturday, May 11.
This year, we’ve teamed up with Blessings in a Basket for the first time to create a sweet care package specifically designed for birth mothers. Why? Because we want birth moms to be honored and encouraged on this holiday. And we thought a few goodies would be a loving way to care.
The first week in February we gathered around one table with 17 different men and women from North Texas. We hosted our first (ever!) BraveLove Roundtable discussion and lunch with different DFW area leaders from adoption agencies, pregnancy resource centers, schools, churches, law firms, etc. Everyone shared their opinions and talked honestly and openly about the adoption stigmas that exist today. We shared our vision and then had a constructive discussion around plans for making this movement move.
We’re thankful to have 17 new friends of BraveLove and looking forward to more Roundtables!
Hope you all have had a lovely week. We’re blown away that it’s already mid-February. It’s been a busy few weeks around BraveLove as we’ve met some incredible people that continue to help make this movement move. Just wanted to share some stories and updates with you as you head into your weekend:
A new year brings resolutions, momentum and hopes for improved habits. This year we have big dreams for BraveLove, and we’re doing everything in our power to make these plans a reality. We need your help though. Here is what’s on the horizon and ways you can get involved with this movement. (Note: These plans are dependent on the support we raise. We like to keep an open mind because there’s always room for change.)
Our 2013 plans…
2012 has been a great year, and we have you to thank this Christmas. We’re excited by some of these recent accomplishments made possible by your belief in our mission. Before we kickoff a new year, let’s look back.
You’ve probably noticed the surge of adoption info swirling around the world wide web this month like sweet reunion stories, adoption-related events and editorials. (FYI, November is National Adoption Month - in case you missed that memo.) That said, here is our BraveLove recap from National Adoption Month:
For those who have been tracking with us recently, you know it’s National Adoption Month. For the rest of you, start following today. We’ve been sharing some beautiful adoption stories, videos and Q&A’s. The good news - November isn’t over yet so there’s more to come.
