Adoptive Families magazine is turning 21! To celebrate more than two decades of resources and community, we’re asking readers to tell us how Adoptive Families has helped you on your journey.

One randomly selected family will win a $250 prize, and we’ll feature a group of stories and photos in an upcoming issue.

To enter the Adoptive Families Then & Now Contest:

Post a comment below, telling us what Adoptive Families has meant on your family’s journey.

What year did you start reading Adoptive Families magazine? What adoption stage were you in then—researching, in the process, waiting, parenting? How old was your child when he or she came home, and how has your child or family changed since then? Is there an article, a story, a piece of advice that you read in AF that has stuck with you?

We’d also love to see photos of your family. Share a photo of your child during your first days or months together + a photo of him or her today in the “Then and Now Family Photos” album on our community site, AdoptiveFamiliesCircle. If you’ve uploaded photos, please share the links below.

We can’t wait to read your stories and see your photos!
