Send Origins Your Work

Call for adoption stories, essays, and poems for the Winter issue of our Mothers in Action newsletter.

Since November is National Adoption Month, also known as National Adoption Awareness (or as we call it Bewareness) Month, Origins-USA would like your take on this “celebration.”

National Adoption Month began in 1976 to increase adoptions of kids from foster care.  Each year the president proclaims November as National Adoption Month. President Obama’s proclamation is below.

Of course, no sooner than NAM was established, than the adoption industry subverted it to its own ends. See  the Bethany Christian Services website

This is the same Bethany that was featured in The Nation (“Shotgun Adoption” )

Please send us your essay, poems, whatever by November 16 to
