Hi we have been on our journey for 3 yrs. The first year was a waiting list. This would be our first child and we are welcome to advice to help us along on this process it can be a lonely process when friends and family don't all understand the emotion that a couple goes through. 

We have been enjoying our time together in the mean time going to concerts and taking time to visit friends and family.

I live in Muskegon Mi. A small town out side Grand Rapids. I am single and Caucasian I have five adopted African American children. One private at birth through an agency and four adopted through foster care. Also looks like I might get my foster son and his sister back. Seven under seven four still in diapers. And I wondered at one time if I would ever have

I just thought I would introduce myself. We are a family of three hoping for more. We live just east of Detroit. We have been approved for one year and the finding process seems long this time. Would love to meet other Michigan families. Have a great Memorial Weekend.

I'm always willing to talk about or promote adoption! The doll company sounds so cool.... I have to tell you this story. We adopted our daughter Nastya from Russia when she was 7. At that time a volunteer at the orphanage gave me photos of two little girls that she desperately wanted to find families for, so I took the photos home and actually ended up finding families for the girls. Well....comes the day Nastya wanted a baby doll, and we planned an afternoon to go to the store and pick out her baby doll. We got there and she pulled out of her little purse a picture of a baby that she picked up from somewhere. That was "her referral" I guess....and she went up and down the row of dolls until she found "her" baby.

She tells me she is going to get married, move to Russia, adopt lots of babies and I can take care of them - sounds good!

We adopted four times through Adoption Options Worldwide in Troy. It is a small agency that I found to be absolutely honest and scrupulous. We paid so much less for our adoptions (Russia) than anyone else I was a miracle.
