My husband and I are considering taking the foster/adopt route. We've been waiting for a child with a private agency for over a year and a half. We did have one placement (we had a little boy for four months) but the birthfather contested the adoption and got the child back. I'm nervous about taking the foster/adopt route because I don't want something like that to happen to us again... I am wondering if we'll have better success working with our state's social services and children who are desperate for a home. Any thoughts? Positive experiences? Should we continue waiting with our private agency?
