Edumucation....and To Do's....

We have had a lot of great feedback. So I want to give you a few "homework" assignments because people keep asking how they can help us.


First, we would like you to "edumucate" yourself on the current law. Click HERE to read what the current law is in Oklahoma with regard to relinquishment of parental rights. Just educate yourself, and please know this, we are NOT suggesting that we get rid of any portion of this law. We are proposing ADDING to it to give both birth mothers and adoptive families alternatives to the way it has "always" been done. So please, take time to read and understand.


Second, please take our new "button" on the upper right hand side of the blog and put it on your blog or website. If you have "install" questions on how to install it, email us and we will be glad to provide that info for you!


Third, become a "follower" of the blog. On the right hand side of the page, all you have to do is "sign in" and become a follower. We need to be able to show the legislature that we have a huge following of people supporting the change in the law. So "follow" and e-mail out our new fancy shmancy blog to everyone you know. They don't have to be adoptive families.


Fourth, join our cause on facebook. It is called, Promote Oklahoma Adoption. If you need us to request you join, just send a friend request to Molly Shockley and she will send you one right back.

Fifth, leave a comment. Even if it just says....Rock on with your socks on! If you don't have an account, click Anonymous....


All homework is do on Monday! Get to it kids, put your money (aka blogs) where your mouth is and show this new thing off....


Also - a big THANKS to Murphy Resources and The Francy Law Firm for sponsoring our new bloggie page!!!!!

Wonderful! My husband and I are currently waiting on the adoption list for DHS for about 18 months now. We desperately want another child (we have two biological children) but can't afford a private adoption. We have a foster daughter that is set to return home in about 9 weeks. I will be following this blog!! I am so excited about it!
