AAC is continuing our popular tradition of holding a contest to submit a logo for our 2016 Annual International Conference. The conference theme this year is Trailblazing Change: Moving Mountains Together in Adoption. The winner will receive free conference registration for AAC's 2016 Conference in Denver, which is transferrable to another attendee if the winner is unable to attend. We encourage the winner to consider submitting the logo artwork as a raffle prize at the conference. The donations from the raffle will be used to assist in AAC’s legislative advocacy. The AAC will use the logo in conference related publications as well as on products in the AAC Café Press store. So put your creative caps on everyone! The deadline to submit artwork is August 15th, 2015. Work can be submitted to Desiree Jacob firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission must be in a PDF or word file.

from Jean A. S. StraussCheck out this powerful short video by Jean Strauss documenting First/Birth Mother's experiences and feelings surrounding adoption. Many groups opposed to access legislation argue that First/Birth mothers were promised life long anonymity. The evidence though suggests quite the opposite. The stories shared here support the real sentiments of the vast majority of First/Birth mothers throughout the country. Listen to four mothers speak about their experiences and feelings, which highlight the powerful and excruciating experience they each survived.
