This multimedia guide covers all aspects of announcing your adoption. We talk about when to announce, ideas on how to announce/adoption announcements, how much information to share, and fundraising considerations.
Opinions differ on when to announce your adoption. Some families want to shout their
plans from the rooftops as soon as they decide to adopt, while others wait until they have a match or a referral. Still others choose to rely on word of mouth to let people know about their plans before the adoption is final and wait until their child is home to send a formal announcement. Each option has its pros and cons, and you have to pick the option that works best for your situation and your personality.
