Spotlight on AF

Back-to-School Prep
Getting ready for a new school year means preparing your child--and his teacher--for questions about adoption in the classroom. Don't miss adoptivefamilies.com/school, where you'll find downloadable handouts for your child's teacher, inspiring ideas for adoption presentations, creative approaches to sticky assignments, advice from experts about development and learning styles, suggested books to read and donate to your school library, and more.

In Good Company
Adoption support at work is coming into the mainstream--many companies offer reimbursement of adoption expenses, paid leave, and flextime. At adoptivefamilies.com/topcompanies, check out the reader-nominated companies who are going the extra mile to help their employees build families. If your employer offers great adoption benefits, we want to hear about it--and if your employer could use a nudge in the right direction, you'll find a downloadable sample letter to help you make your case.

The Right Stuff
Moms and dads have an endless assortment of products, tools, and services to choose from, whether they're just starting to build a family, or are welcoming a second (or third) child into their homes. But which gadgets make the grade for our families? At adoptivefamilies.com/gear, readers review baby carriers, lifebooks, travel strollers, announcements, and more. Don't forget to add your own reviews!.
