    Love Is At The Core Of A Happy Family, Not Just Names On A Family Tree


    Los Angeles, CA, April 28, 2016 – Discovering your family tree has traditionally been an exciting and enlightening school activity where children learn about their ancestors and share pinnacle stories of their roots. But what happens when, due to adoption, you don't know your roots? T. Katz, author of No Family Tree For Me, was adopted and knows from personal experience how the vision of a family tree for children in non-traditional and blended families could be somewhat underwhelming when put on paper.

    In No Family Tree for Me, Katz portrays the story of Tessie Tremaine. Like Katz's own daughter, Tessie walked on eggshells when asked about her family tree. Both of her parents were adopted. And when she was given an assignment by her English teacher to create her family tree, she couldn't think of anything worse – imaging a family "twig” rather than a tree.

    Ultimately, Tessie (and Katz's daughter) learn that family is what you make of it – not who you share your DNA with.

    "This book has personal meaning to me, and it was something I knew I needed to write. As a child who was adopted not once, but twice, I've been fortunate to become an honorary member of some incredibly loving families,” says Katz. "They instilled in me what is truly important in life … to love and be loved.”

    Meet T. Katz. She's a popular radio host in Santa Clarita, CA, known as "Afternoon T.” She's versed on a wide array of topics and loves hearing stories as much as telling them. Her interests range from discussing medical issues to music to adoption. She has her own interesting story about growing up adopted and her ex-husband found out late in life (by accident) that he, too, was adopted. Subsequently, the topic of blended families is one that she is passionate about. T. Katz is also a successful public speaker.

    As a parent, you know that nobody’s perfect. Often you learn the most by making mistakes. But, at the end of the day, what’s most important is that you love and care for your children.

    african american adoption


    Currently there are nearly 102,000 children (under 18 years of age) available for adoption from the foster care system in the United States. Older youths (aged 11 – 17) are overrepresented within this population, and often experience greater difficulty getting placed with a family. Like all children, these adoptable youths don’t need perfection — they need love, stability and commitment.

    Today we’re releasing a new series of public service advertisements (PSAs) that encourage prospective parents to consider adopting an older youth from foster care. Our PSAs are intended to show that you don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent. The ads show a series of humorous parenting mishaps, which can make adoption seem more realistic and approachable.

    We need your help spreading this message. Here’s how you can get involved:

    · Share our PSAs on your blog or social media channel: http://www.multivu.com/mnr/65203-hhs-and-ad-council-consider-adopting-older-youth-from-foster-care

    · Share our website AdoptUSKids.org or info line (1-888-200-4005 – English; 1-877-236-7831 – Spanish) with someone you know who has considered adoption

    These new PSAs are part of the Ad Council’s ongoing campaign with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and AdoptUSKids. Through this remarkable campaign, we’ve been able to place more than 21,000 children into loving homes. With your help, we can continue to place even more children with “perfect” parents.
