Cool tee and blog. I was going to blog, but here we are a year after we started our process and I have yet to get it up and running. Ah well. Hope you place soon. We have been waiting for 10 months now, and had one fall through on us. My nesting is out of control.

Re: Domestic adoptions & Networking

Thanks!!

I am not really "blogging" on this site..but we do have a video blog, So we both get on and talk about each step we are going through, our thoughts and feelings, showing what we have made our bought for them and then once we have our baby we will put music to it and that will be something they will keep for life .

Re: Domestic adoptions & Networking

We have had 3 matches in our 1.5 year adoption journey. The first 2 the mom's decided to parent before birth. The last one however, we drove almost 10 hours the day he was born, stayed at the hotel across from the hospital, only to find out the state had taken custody of him because he was born with drugs in his system. We would have loved to parent him anyway, but the State had custody already--

So that is it in a nutshell... So we continue on, knowing our baby and a very special birthmom will eventually come our way--

Now for networking...we are a happily married young couple with a very excited 6 year old big brother...open to any race, any gender, including sibling groups and multiples...

Re: Domestic adoptions & Networking

This is a good resource for how to network:
http://members.journeytoadoption.com/

We followed some of their suggestions/principles.. We sent letters out to friends/family in July... found a potential first mom in late October and our LO was born Jan 3rd! She's 17 months old now!

I'm thinking of tweaking the program for our second adoption search and using the internet for most of it...
