Adoption Circle - March Newsletter 2024

Spring has sprung. At least that’s what the calendar says! 😊In Ohio we know differently and know that April snow is around the corner. We will take any sunshine we can get. We had several events in March that we recognized and celebrated. 

International Women’s Day

We celebrated International Women’s Day by recognizing the 5 amazing women who started Adoption Circle in 1991. Without the contributions of all of these women, Adoption Circle wouldn’t be the agency it is today. We are honored to still have one founder involved in the day to day operations and two are on the Adoption Circle board. We celebrate these women and all amazing women on International Women’s Day.


National Social Worker Month

The White House officially recognized March as National Social Work Month in 1984. Social Work Month is a time to celebrate the great profession of social work. Social work Month encourages support of the profession, uplifts social workers and celebrates their contributions. Again, Adoption Circle would not exist or continue to operate if it weren’t for social workers. Our awesome staff, comprised mostly of social workers, is what makes Adoption Circle the agency it is today. Please go to our Meet the Staff page on our website to learn more about our amazing staff of social workers.

World Down Syndrome Day

3/21 was World Down Syndrome Day. This day was chosen to signify the triplication (3) of the 21st chromosome. People with Down Syndrome have an extra copy of the 21st chromosome. Many people are not only living, but thriving with Down Syndrome. Our very own rockstar Hadlee is living proof of a little one thriving with Down Syndrome. Hadlee is currently in preschool and loves drawing, playing outside, dancing and music. She is a happy and an awesome little girl. 


Tax Time

As the tax deadline approaches parents may have questions about the tax credit. The following link is for the IRS form 8839 (Qualified Adoption Expenses). https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/about-form-8839 When filing your taxes, you may want to reference this form with your accountant if your accountant is not aware. As always, Adoption Circle never gives tax advice and always suggests you direct adoption tax questions to an accountant.


Easter came early this year. We were excited to see all the Easter pictures for the families who celebrate Easter. We loved seeing our families in their Easter finery and all the treats the Easter Bunny delivered. 


A Note from the Director of Birth Parent Services:

A reminder about book club! We are looking to start up our book club again, so please contact kim@adoptioncircle.org with book or Podcast recommendations. 

Looking forward to the May newsletter and highlighting all the April events. If you don’t follow us on our social media accounts, please do so. We post several times throughout the month! FaceBook, Instagram, Twitter
