#StopTheAwkward Project


We've been up to some mischief lately...have you heard? It's our #StopTheAwkward Project and we want you to be a part of it!

#StopTheAwkward is Adopteen's own way of addressing topics we've been dying to bring up in the adoption community. In the next few months, we will be posting videos of our faces, funny and serious, talking about anything and everything we want. Visit or subscribe to our YouTube channel to follow along and spread the word!

Our first video was posted last week.  Have you seen it, yet??

2014-2015 AdopTween Year is Coming to an End


AdopTween Wraps Up

The 2014-2015 AdopTween Year is wrapping up this month with a crazy Harry Potter-themed last Hangout! We're talking House Sorting Ceremony, Quidditch Tournament, Transfiguration, Potions, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Charms, and a delicious banquet!  When it comes to AdopTween and Harry Potter, we don't mess around.

Thank you too all of the fantastic AdopTween Mentors and AdopTween participants who have hung out with us this year.  We've had a blast and hope you all did, too!  You guys are awesome.
