T and I have been doing a bit more research on the adoption front. We have determined that, for our current state in life, it would be best to adopt a newborn, which means we would like to connect with an expectant mother (and father) who would be willing to make an adoption plan with us.
We received some great advice from a friend-of-a-friend who said that, in her experience, newborn adoptions work out best when the contact is made through a personal connection: "I know a woman who is expecting and thinking about adoption" and that connection making it to the hoping-to-adopt couple.
So, this is an open letter to all our friends :) If you know of any expectant mothers hoping to make an adoption plan, please let us know! And feel free to tell your friends! And your friends' friends! And your family! And your friends' family! and.. well, you get the idea :)
