  • You can put an ad in the paper, and also look online.
    http://www.adoptionhelp.org/adoptive_families/
    http://www.findadoptiveparents.com/
    Those sites give an idea and the first one lets you put an ad up. I had some friends who had some luck putting ads in the personal section or announcement section and they had a baby within a year. You just need to be careful and make sure you have a lawyer to haggle all the details. You dont want to end up with alot of medical bills and no baby.

  • Your local church may have some sort adoption set up. I know the LDS church here in Utah does, so contact them and see what they have to say.

  • I see people looking for adoptive parents all the time in the paper. You can start by taking out an add.
