Join us as we work toward hearing all of the “Voices” of adoption.

We welcome stories, blog posts, a photograph, poetry, letters, music, videos, and podcasts, art work or any other creative idea you may have.

We ask our contributors to give the readers, “a viewing point” rather than simply an opinion or point of view.  Wrap your thoughts, feelings and experiences in a thoughtful, funny, or straightforward way that invites readers to think about the adoption experience in a way they might not have before.

Don’t forget that “a picture is worth 1000 words,” so be sure to include pictures – we love pictures that tell a story.

Send your submissions by email to: editor [at] with “AVM Submission” in the subject line.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Executive Editor
