Hello ARSS Family! We want to welcome our new members from our Facebook and Instagram. We appreciate you joining our ARSS community!
Welcome to summer……It’s our Birth Month – Happy Birth Month to US!! We are celebrating our one year Anniversary!! We are very excited to be celebrating with you and hope you will visit our latest blog recapping this whole year in review! Click here to visit the blog.
We are reaching out to you our community to help us keep our “Best Genes You’ll Ever Wear” program going. For our Birth – Day, we are giving away TWO AncestryDNA Kits. In order to keep our shelves full of DNA kits, we need your help. One of our many goals is to pay it forward and so far we have been able to do that with the kind gifts of some of our recent finds with our “Best Genes You’ll Ever Wear” program! Please include Adoption Reunion Search & Support in your own “pay it forward” gifting. We truly appreciate it!!
Don't forget to enter our birthday DNA Kit Giveaway on Facebook! On July 19th we will announce TWO winners. So don't delay, enter today for your chance!
While a lot of you bake during this summer months, why don’t you stay inside in your cool homes, or at the beaches, lakes or even a pool, and read a book! To continue with our Summer Suggested Reading we have for you:
Betty Jean Lifton’s “Journey of the Adopted Self”. This book is one of the first books I ever read on adoption. It’s like an adoption Bible. Being an adoptee myself, I wanted to see what was out there. Betty Jean Lifton takes us on a journey of ourselves. To understand us, to explore us, so that one day we can be “whole”. We all know we are on a journey, a journey to find our authentic self. Betty Jean Lifton takes you there.
“Primal Wound”, by Nancy Newton Verrier, is another classic. In her book, the author relates to a child’s consequences of adoption from the separation from their first mother through their adulthood. She talks about attachment bonding and effects of loss. Our primal wound.
We want to congratulate Patty, Lisa, Patricia, Alison, Ian, and Tracey on their recent finds! Let’s keep this green wave going. Happy Summer everyone!!!
We hope you will read our monthly news, and come back often to our website, Facebook page, and Instagram.
