Congratulations to Kate, who won a copy of Adam Pertman’s book Adoption Nation (Second Edition) in the giveaway yesterday! For more about the book, or to read everyone’s comments about adoption, see my previous post.

Here’s today’s giveaway post, the last of three. First, some adoption-related news:

Yesterday, the Arkansas Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling that said the state’s ban on adoption by unmarried, cohabiting couples—a ban enacted by voter referendum in 2008—was unconstitutional. I have more on this in my piece over at Keen News Service.

On to the contest:

We’ll make this an easy one. Leave a comment on this post with your favorite springtime activity, and I’ll enter you in a drawing to receive a free copy of Adoption Nation, courtesy of the publisher. Comments must be left before 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time Friday, April 8, 2011. (That’s 2:59 a.m. Eastern Time, April 9.)

Further rules and restrictions after the jump.

Additional rules and restrictions: U.S. and Canada residents only, please. One entry per person. Don’t worry if your comment is moderated; once I approve it, it will appear based on the time you submitted it. Spam comments, including off-topic or commercial comments, will not count. If you win any one of the three drawings for this book, you cannot play again. (You can leave a comment to participate in the discussion, but I won’t enter you in the drawing.) If you are or have been a paying advertiser (or an employee of a paying advertiser) on Mombian, you can’t play.

You must also leave a valid e-mail address with your comment. Don’t leave a postal address, though. If you win, I’ll contact you by e-mail about shipping. I will then share the winner’s name and postal address with the publicist, for the sole purpose of allowing them to mail you your prize directly.
