Turning the USA Pink with Adoption Truth


The image was from 12-26-12.  The Google Map is here for the most updated version. It is public, so if you feel handy and complete a state, feel free to pink it out.
I added a LISTly for the links. Please just add your Craigslist ad to Listly. No need for anything fancy;  just the link and the area covered. It will make it easier to see which are where, and if any get pulled. We have over 100 listings now in over half of the USA states. 

Getting Attention for the Cause

I’ll have been invited to be interviewed by Lisa Marie Macci on the Justice Hour this Saturday 11/24/12 at 3pm EST.

It’s an hour long radio show, so I hope that I will have the chance to speak abut many adoption issues! There is a call-in number for the show: 1-888-565-1470.

We will be talking about the Craigslist Adoption Truth Project on HuffPo Live here on Dec 10th 2012 at 8:15 EST.

About the Author

Musings of the Lame was started in 2005 primarily as a simple blog recording the feelings of a birthmother as she struggled to understand how the act of relinquishing her first newborn so to adoption in 1987 continued to be a major force in her life. Built from the knowledge gained in the adoption community, it records the search for her son and the adoption reunion as it happened. Since then, it has grown as an adoption forum encompassing the complexity of the adoption industry, the fight to free her sons adoption records and the need for Adoptee Rights, and a growing community of other birthmothers, adoptive parents and adopted persons who are able to see that so much what we want to believe about adoption is wrong.
