Check out my article to see the new picture of Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy star) and her new adopted baby girl from Korea. Here's the link:

The advice I can give you is to find the program that is right for you then to find the most ethical agency that works within that program.

There are many things to consider.... are you willing to parent trans-racially? will you accept special needs?? if so, what are your limitations on special needs? How long are you able to stay in country? (different countries have different requirements) and what ages are preferred?
These are just some of the questions you need to search for the answers within yourself.
Once you have that narrowed down... then... look for an ethical agency....

hey guys! i'm 31 and never been married. i've been spending all my time, my resources, my energy mainly on myself. meanwhile there are children growing up in institutions instead of homes. my scripture tells me that i am my brothers keeper and not of His fold if i don't care for such as orphans. and dangit! i want babies! it do believe that every child deserves a mother AND a father but surely one of the two is better than none. now, i know adoption, particularly international, doesn't happen quickly and certainly not cheaply. what counsel and direction can y'all give me at this point? my greatest concern is financial. i'd love to hear what y'all have learned.

Hello everyone! I just found this site and I'm so excited! What a great resource for families. My husband and I are adopting from Ethiopia and have been waiting for our I-171H form for almost 7 weeks. (UGH!) To pass the time I started writing about adoption on Examiner as well. Yesterday I was so excited to hear about one of my favorite Grey's Anatomy stars who announced adoption plans! Check out the article here if you like! I hope to make lots of friends here.
