Are you familiar with Adoption Mosaic?Â How about their magazine Adoption Constellation? I realize there are some that disagree with this organization (I saw a long scathing message trail on Dawn’s blog some time ago). I am not speaking to you.Â I am speaking to those that might not be familiar and have not yet formed their own opinion. I am also peddling my own.
The magazine touts itself as a magazine “Unlike any other adoption-related magazine, Adoption Mosaicâ€™s The Adoption Constellation magazine represents and speaks to all members of our diverse adoption community. The purpose of The Adoption Constellation magazine is to help build and support bridges between adoption constellation members, with the ultimate goal of improving our adoption experiences.” I had been monitoring the mag for a while, several friends have contributed. Yet I never purchased it. (I did download old issues).
I just purchased a subscription for selfish reasons. I was interviewed for an article in their Spring 2011 Issue. The article was written by adoptive mother, Dawn Friedman, and is focused on Adoption Relationships in the Online World (My adoption relationship is ONLY an online one). I believe the mag just went to print and should be out soon. Note the cover art was done by Massachusetts based artist (and adoptee) JooYoung Choi. Visit her website at http://www.jooyoungchoi.org.
Anywho, wanted to share and encourage you to check out.Â I have recently suggested an adoptee/artist/photographer friend also consider submitting to them.Â Those that object to their position, mission, POV, should also consider doing same.Â Way to get your voice heard is to express it.
