You know, this round-up is never easy. There are so many bloggers writing about adoption particularly (fewer on fostering), and some newer bloggers are coming through with some great posts. This month has been a good month for adoption bloggers with 3 of us being shortlisted for Brilliance in Blogging Awards – The One Hand […]

Choosing this month’s round up has not been easy, there have been a lot of great posts out there. You can always find a lot of these great post yourself on The Adoption Social, Weekly Adoption Shout Out, #WASO, but I very happy to give you a selection of some of my favourites I’ve spotted […]
Hi there and welcome to March’s Adoption and Fostering round up. I’m Vicki from The Boy’s Behaviour and I’m so pleased to be back editing this important round-up, along with Sarah from The Puffin Diaries. I’ve so many posts to share with you this month on a number of different topics, so forgive me if […]
I’m very happy to say the Adoption and Fostering Round Up is back. Myself, Sarah from The Puffin Diaries and Vicki from The Boys Behaviour, and jointly, the founders and driving force behind The Adoption Social, will now be taking up the baton. We find ourselves in the fortunate position of seeing and reading lots […]
As we near to Half Term (not long now! Hang in there!) we are getting straight to it this month, with a post from author Sally Donovan who has blogged at Community Care. ‘Adoption has become a political battleground’ is a strong statement but one I am inclined to agree with. There’s so much of […]
It’s been a while since I last wrote the round-up, having been very busy lately, so the lovely Sarah and Vicki from The Adoption Social stepped-in. However I am back now and have been reading away avidly the various blogs popping up all over Twitter. Starting this month with a wonderful blog from Hackney Child […]
So with Maryam still taking a break, The Adoption and Fostering Round Up this time falls to me, Sarah from The Puffin Diaries. As the other half of The Adoption Social and #WASO, Vicki from The Boys Behaviour being the other, I do get to read lots of blogs surrounding the subject of adoption. I […]
Hi there and welcome to July’s Adoption and Fostering round up. Maryam’s taking a break this month as she’s in the midst of Ramadan, and next month will be difficult for her too, so for the next two months your round-ups will be hosted by myself – Vicki from The Boy’s Behaviour and Sarah from […]
I’m writing this month’s round-up with a small boy leaning on my right elbow, watching me type. He can’t read yet so I am not sure what exactly he is finding so fascinating about me writing but at least he can’t spot my spelling mistakes. It’s been a busy month as usual in the adoption […]
This month’s round-up sees a wide range of posts from all the fantastic bloggers in the adoption and fostering community. Adoption and fostering requires parenting with some additional challenges that account for a child’s experience of the world prior to stability and a loving home. For most of our bloggers, writing is kind of therapeutic […]
Another busy month in the adoption and fostering blogosphere and the start of a new school term for many. The holidays may be over but hopefully too is the cold weather – was that sun we just had?? Bring on the summer – finally! Starting this week with Sarah from The Puffin Diaries who ran the […]
Its been a busy and interesting month for most of the adoption and fostering bloggers….not least because we had a big day this month: Mother’s Day. Its a day many of us looked forward to for a long time – years trying to have children or going through Approval and awaiting that match. When your […]
This is my first round-up of 2013. Last month the very lovely Vicki at The Boy’s Behaviour guest-edited the round-up for me, which was wonderful to get a new pair of eyes on the Adoption and Fostering blogosphere. It was also great for me as I seem to be increasingly up to my eyes in […]
Happy New Year and welcome to the first Adoption and Fostering Round-Up of 2013. I’m Vicki and I blog over at The Boy’s Behaviour, where I write about my life as adoptive mum to Mini. Our usual lovely round-up editor Maryam has recently welcomed the latest addition to her family and as you can […]
Read all the Adoption/Fostering Round-ups This month we had National Adoption Week (NAW) 5th-11th November. It’s a week devoted to raising adoption awareness and addressing misconceptions, spreading ideas and support. A lot of bloggers were very active and BAAF (British Association for Adoption and Fostering) who hosted the week, called for Adoption Champions – […]

Run by the British Association for Adoption and Fostering or BAAF as it’s more commonly known, National Adoption Week seeks to raise awareness of adoption, and asks those who have ever considered adoption, even if just for a moment, to ‘rule themselves in’. There are […]
