A few weeks ago, I wrote several blog posts in recognition of National Adoption Awareness Month. And as part of those posts, I tackled the topic of what adoptive parents wish that people wouldn’t ask in public. To further this message, I created a web cartoon which hopefully demonstrates the absurdity of some of these intrusive questions. I was also given the opportunity to create a video and a blog piece for iVillage, as a way to get the word out to the general public. Fortunately for me, I had the help of a few fantastic friends- Ann, Joanne, Penny, and Lynne (as well as my pal Toni who didn’t appear in the video).
Here is the video piece that played on iVillage, and was also featured as this week’s “Must Watch Video”!
And here is a link to the blog post that I wrote for iVillage: “What Not to Say to Parents of Adopted Children”
And in case you missed my full web cartoon… here it is again:
