Privates on Parade - balancing confidentiality and openness in the adoption blogosphere...This article was first posted a few weeks ago on the fabulous blog: The Adoption Social . The Adoption Social is a great place to browse for invaluable information about adoption and fostering, to read other blogs about these issues, to enter discussions into topics which concern many adopters and to just hang out online. It publishes new content every day and is one of the websites I keep coming back to on a regular basis.
Run by two blogging adopters it really is a forum for adopters and by adopter. Check it out and participate in one of their Link Ups...
A piece from Adoption Journey on the need for adopters to consider privacy in social media.
A few weeks ago I was reading the paper in my lunch break. Towards the middle was one of those heart warming human interest stories. An adult who had been adopted as a very young child had set out on a search for her birth mother and had finally found her using Facebook. A reunion ensued and so did a happy ending. They were now back in regular contact and building a new relationship. Who couldn’t fail to have their heart touched by such a lovely tale? Well, me for a start because, as I read it, the uplifting story was tinged with a shiver which went down my spine.
