by ACajunsWifeNovember 17, 2014 at 8:17 PMHello, I am Stevie and new as of today :) looking into adopting Angel a girl in Uganda we have been sponsoring along with her sibling (we get the info next week, eek) I really hope we can bring and keep them together.
Hi,I'm Rena and I'm actually a birthmom. I came here for advise and to get some encouragement through this very hard time in my life! I'm 27 and I am a mother to my 8ys Ds and birthmom a beautiful 10 wk old baby girl. Hearing an adoptive mothers store or feelings may help me for what's ahead! And besides this is the best place to ask what I can or cannot do as far as a semi adoption goes! Ughh our agency really need to go to school for there job r something. Hah!
Congrats to the ones who have gotten a sweet baby and good luck to the mommys waiting.
Praying for you all!
by Jaderegina3December 7, 2014 at 11:51 PMMy husband and I have a very open relationship with my daughter's birthmother & father. We met her birth mom when she was 7 months pregnant. We see them all the time & love that our daughter now has a "GIANT " family. Please let me know if you have questions! We're also looking to adopt a baby again and would like info, too if you know of anyone interested in the adoption option! You don't know how much we pray for people as selfless as you...on behalf of all adoptive Mommas & daddy's ... Thank you...
December 16, 2014 at 10:46 PMHi everyone my name is Lynn. I gave up my son almost 3 years ago due to him being special needs and the family that took him can better take care if him. And sometimes I have depressed feelings about it, and no one understands what I'm going through so I would like to join this group to express how I feel sometimes

Hi all, I am Luciana. We're a family of 6: Me, my husband, our 8 year old bio son, two rescue kitties and one hedgehog. Currently, we're waiting for a referral to adopt a baby from Taiwan.
Infertility and adoption has been a long long and painful road. Two failed IVFs and one failed adoption due to provincial regulations. It has been hard. But we perhaps because of that our family grew stronger and closer. Now praying that our current adoption process is smooth and peaceful. That would be such a blessing!
Happy Holidays to all!

by Jmir1426January 8, 2015 at 1:27 PMHi everyone, my name is Jennifer and I am 30 yrs old with no kids yet. I am just starting to look into the adoption process here in NY. My bf and I decided to adopt because he already has 4 children that are all teenagers now and he doesn't want to go through the "baby stage" again. So this was our "compromise". Is there anyone that can give me some advise on what's to come. We are looking to do local adoption.
by beadfairyJanuary 16, 2015 at 11:35 AMHello, my name is Libbey I'm a stay at home mom with two sons, 6yo and 7yo, and we are days away from having a baby placed with us. I am an American living abroad with my husband and I'm not sure if I will be able to give her my citizenship or how it all works. I have so many questions!
