Hello! My husband and I are moving to California in October to begin the adoption process. We have done tons of research but were wondering if anyone has suggestion or advice. We are looking for an adoption agency to help us adopt a newborn. I am so excite to be part of this network of people.

Any adoptive families where their Chinese/Hong Kong adoptee is now an adult? We invite them to join our adoptee reunion. www.caawr.com

My wife and I wanted to have a child. But after ten fruitless years of trying the old fashion way, we accepted the fact that we may be infertile and have chosen not to pursue other methods (drugs, in vitro, etc...). My wife has always talked about adoption so it was our next logical option. Biology has been quietly put to rest; however, we still very much want to be parents.

We always saw having a family as the next great adventure. Adoption filled us with hope, a sense of possibility. We hope that you and your unborn baby are a part of our new adventure. Growing our family and watching us as we slowly climb down cloud nine once we are asked to be a Mommy & Daddy.

We met Halloween night 1996 dancing. Norys was dressed as a saloon girl and Bobby was dressed as himself. Norys stopped in her tracks as she starred at him until his friend caught her. She was so embarrassed that she ran straight to the bathroom and did not come out for over 20 minutes. When she finally did he saw her and asked her to dance. We danced the night away.

Six months later we moved in together. A year and a half later we purchased our first property and were engaged two years after that. We had a whirl wind romance that still feels new fourteen years later.

My name is Ola Zuri and I would like to introduce you to a new children’s book series that will help to solve a problem. Recently published, Where Do I Belong?, is the second book in the series with topics relating to transracial adoption, foster care, racism, fitting in, questions about family, racial identity, and most of all, self esteem and self confidence. The inspiration for these stories has stemmed from my own personal experiences as a transracial adoptee and the various areas of difficulty that have been discussed with me by other adoptees, adoptive parents and birth parents.

Judy: I just re-read your posting. I thought you had brought in a newborn. You have given those children an amazing gift, I am touched by your story.

Judy: we've been waiting for a birth-mother match for one year and just decided to sign up through LA county for a Foster/Adopt Family. Couldn't hurt, we already have our home study complete.
But - aren't the chances of losing the baby to it's birth mother a bit scary. We're signing the paperwork today.
