As you may know, November is National Adoption Month! This is a great opportunity to raise awareness about the urgent need for adoptive families for children and youth. What better way to do that than to share some inspirational stories? 

We’re asking parents who have adopted through Beech Acres Parenting Center to share their stories as a way to inspire other families to consider opening their heart and their home to a child. 

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  1. Answer one or all of these simple questions:
    • What inspired you to consider foster care and adoption?
    • How did adopting change your life?
    • How did Beech Acres support you?
    • Where are you now? Just a quick update on your family!
  2. A photo from your adoption day AND a current photo.

That’s it!

You can share your story in written format and send it to If you really want to make an impact send us a short video with the answers. 

These stories will be shared on our website, social media, and perhaps emails or newsletters. 

Can you help us to inspire more extraordinary individuals to consider foster care and adoption?

Please complete a media release form for any children and adults who appear in photos or videos. 

Thank you!
