I want to adopt a little girl so bad! I want a mixed race baby, and I dont care what race it is! I want a baby so bad and I cant have anymore children b/c of the kind of tubal I got. Ive had my tubes cut and burnt, so there is no way that I can have another natural child. I have 3 boys already and Im ready for a little girl. I couldnt stand to be a foster parent for very long b/c I would get too attached to the children they would bring to me and then have them take them away would just be devastating! I have a set of twin boys who are almost 4yrs old and would LOVE to have twin girls as well, if that were an option... How can I go about finding mothers that dont want their babies and would allow me to adopt them??Answer Question

You can investigate private lawyers who specialize in adoptions. They would welcome a perspective adoptive parent who would consider a child of minority heritage. But don't discredit foster/adoption through the state. There are children who have had their parental rights terminated and are available for adoption. While fostering and then having a child be reunited with their biological family is bitter sweet (yay! the family is still intact and tears at letting go...), it can be rewarding beyond what you ever expected. And if you foster/adopt, if and when rights of the parents get terminated - you get the first option of adopting that child (if no relatives are available). Many parents have adopted this way. We did a private infant domestic adoption of a black child and it took less than six months total from start to finish. Our next will be a little girl through FC.
