Joy’s 31 days on Adoption Welcome!

joy's 31 dayson adoption (1)

Welcome!  I’m Joy and I will be writing for the 31 days writing challenge ( on adoption.  It’s a topic near and dear to my heart because I’m an adoptive mama.

Here I am with our little guy on Mother’s Day…

I want this series to serve several purposes:

#1-inspire and encourage those of you who are considering adoption or who are already involved in adoption

#2-inform and educate those who are curious about adoption

#3-develop myself as a writer

#4-remembrance for myself about this adoption journey and its purpose

I started this blog just so I could participate in the 31 days writing challenge. But I hope to develop it into much more.  That’s why its called “Joy’s Soapbox”…so I can write about whatever I want and share things I love and enjoy.  I do hope you will stick around.   Thanks!
