@pigment80:  are you planning on trying to adopt a baby, or is any age open? just curious.

 

Just be prepared for some issues that can arise. I am one of four who are adopted and two of my siblings have “Reactive Attachment Disorder” — from not attaching to anyone as babies. A lot of things can cause this.

Unfortunately I’m not a whole lotta help since we’re still TTC but if this route doesn’t work out for us we’re definitely looking at adoption too.

The reason I’m posting though is that I just read this interesting autobiography on that actress Nia Vardalos’ fostadopt experience.  It was a pretty good read but the even better part of it was that she included a ton of references at the back of her book on adoption and fostadopt in the United States and Canada.  The book was called Instant Mom.

Good Luck to you!

Are you thinking of adopting through the state, internationally, or domestically through and agency?

I have found an international agency my husband and I are planning to use in a few years. If your’re interested I can give you the info I have on them.

If you are thinking of adopting through the state or fostering to adopt, I can give you some advice as we are currently going through that process.

If you are thinking about adopting domestically, I won’t be of as much help. I have found an agency that I like, but I’m not sure that is the right route for our family so I haven’t researched it as thoroughly.

I literally have so much info I don’t know where to start. Please, feel free to ask me any questions.
