  • My ex and I found our daughters thru an adoption support group. They knew that we were looking for a sibling group and someone just happened to hear about them and thought they would fit into our family. We looked at their bio and put our application in for them just a few days later. The next week they were featured on Thursday child and the Sally Jessie Raphel show and the agency was bombarded with family's interested in them. Needless to say we adopted them and it was a ride.

  • Both of my DSs were adopted through foster care. Our oldest we did straight foster care and were blessed to be able to adopt him. Our second we did straight adoptions and just finalized a few months ago.

  • We are in the process of adopting our baby girl out of foster care. We are doing fost/adopt through a wonderful private agency. We were matched last summer, after 1.5 yrs of waiting, with a safe surrender newborn. We hope to finalize soon!

  • My best friend just adopted a beautiful baby boy through a Christian facilitator called Adoption Answer. They were matched within two weeks, and were able to bring him home from the hospital. They were very pleased with the process and the way Adoption Answer handled things. I was so happy for them and was thrilled to be apart of their journey. I will be glad to give you her contact info if you want.
