I'm curious if anyone has ever adopted a baby through them, received help from them in placing a baby, or is signed up as a resource family.
Before we had kids we were signed up as a resource family and I was helping them gather statistics on abandoned babies across the country. We received calls from them a couple of times, but were never chosen.
Their mission is to help women who are considering abandoning their babies to find safe, legal alternatives. They say that 60% of the women who work with them end up parenting. Some stay with the resource families for a time.
It's a great program. If you're interested, they are at http://www.projectcuddle.org

adopteeme I normally agree with a lot of your opinions but here I have to differ.Here the law was in response to babies being abandoned in very unsafe ways that often led to death.While it still amazes me a woman can go through an entire pregnancy and give birth and no one notices it does happen.This is not the ultimate solution but as an immediate step to try and stop unsafe abandonment.What angered me was when the law was first passed here if a woman did not do it in a perfect manner such as leaving the baby wrapped up in a box in the hospital cafeteria instead of the ER the news would show her pics from the video cameras.They would be looking for her to prosecute her for abandonment .Blew the whole point of the law.
