Adopting again?

Hi,
We are wanting to adopt again and would appreciate any advice!
Our baby girl was born 4/2010 and we took her home from the hospital, adoption was finalized 1/2011, we did this adoption privately. We have 3 boys as well, ages 5,11 and 15.
I have contacted a couple of agencies and both said because we already have 4 children they would not accept our application.
Anyone been in this position and were you able to adopt again? What agencies did you work with?
Thanks so much for any information or encouragement!
Tara

Re: Adopting again?

You can always try private & advertise yourself and hope you get lucky. We ended up doing a private adoption. I'd only do a private adoption if we did it again (we're still debating #2/5 after what we went through before we met our son's birthparents).

Thanks, we are thinking private too.
Everything went so smoothly and quickly (2 weeks from meeting her birthmom to her birth) with our daughter and that was done locally and privately.
I know they aren't all like that, we were very blessed.
