Adoption Circle - April Newsletter

Happy that April definitely brought us some warmer weather, and hope the snowflakes are behind us.  But May in Ohio, you never know! 😊   Rain or shine we are looking forward to the month of May to celebrate both Birthmother and Mother’s Day!

The month of April brought us the Easter holiday.  Our little ones enjoyed Easter and playing with the Easter Bunny.  One of our little ones enjoyed playing with the Easter Bunny.

Also,  April was National Child Abuse Prevention Month.  This recognizes the importance of families and communities working together to strengthen families while preventing child abuse and neglect.  To continue to learn more about this awareness and show your support please go to  National Child Abuse Prevention Month - Child Welfare Information Gateway  

A way to show support of child abuse prevention awareness children and families were asked to wear blue to show their support.  Many of our children and families showed their support by wearing blue.  

  

 

This month we would also like to take the opportunity to again highlight one of our Social Workers.  Taranna has worked as a contract assessor since 2019.  She is such an asset to our agency and the families absolutely love her.

Taranna has been with Adoption Circle since November 2019.  She graduated from The University of Akron with her Masters in Social Work in 2009.  Taranna has been a social worker for 22 years and has specialized in several areas which includes child welfare (intake, ongoing, and adoptions), mental health, and adults with developmental disabilities.  She has also instructed several social work courses at The University of Akron, Youngstown State University, and Stark State College.  Taranna has a passion and enjoys working with families, especially adoptive families as they travel through their adoption journey.  In her spare time, she loves spending time and making memories with her 4 grandchildren who are 12, 9, 4, and 2.  She also loves having family dinners at her home, scrapbooking, arts and crafts, reading, and just relaxing and watching television.  

Full time, Taranna works for Summit County Children Services as a Protective Supervisor and she is a part-time mental health therapist and an adoption assessor completing domestic and international adoptions. 

 

From the desk of the Birth Mother Director, Kim.  Although our agency will discuss with you what to expect when an expectant mom delivers and the “do’s and don’ts” for the hospital, the following article is also a good resource on how to prepare for your adoption experience at the hospital.  How to Prepare for Your Adoption Experience at the Hospital - Lifetime Christian Adoption

 

Looking forward to May and the Birthmother and Mother’s Day celebrations.   Please look for our next newsletter the end of May.   If you don’t follow us on our social media accounts (FaceBook, Instagram, Twitter), please do so.  We post several times throughout the month! 😊
