Hi, Michelle & Rob! It was very interesting to me to read the reason you are pursuing adoption vs. biological children as the method of building your family. That is the reason my husband and I pursued adoption--because I have a heart defect that would make pregnancy potentially fatal for baby and I. I hope all goes well for you! We just got matched. Who are you working with? I have a suggestion for you if you're open. If not, I understand. When you start adopting, everybody and their brother have all sorts of advice! :-)

Hi all. Just joined adoption voices. My husband and I are from NY. I was highly advised 2/12 years ago not to become pregnant due to a heart defect as the pregnancy/labor could result in death not just for me but the baby. We are doing domestic independent adoption and have been advertising for a year now. We just hope that this year will be our year.

Hello everyone - I am new to adoption voices and the adoption process in general!  We just started the process last a couple of weeks ago.  I just wanted to say hello to everyone and let you all know that I'm excited to meet some new people who may have some more experience with this than myself!

As of April 26th, we are parents to a beautiful little girl.  We ended up doing a private adoption through a lawyer in town because we got no where with our adoption agency after 4 years and no connections through them.  Good luck everyone.  We hope your dreams come true soon.

I have traded info with another woman and several other women from many boards. We have proven that the couple I have been talking with from Ardmore are NOT the couple using those same names scamming people. If you talk to a couple with the names from Oklahoma you can verify if they are the legitimate couple by the area code 580. Anything else is false.

I don't know, of course, if all is well with "Brandi & Keith", but another place you could check to be sure you aren't being scammed is I hope not. Might be worth checking out, though. Either way, I hope you are able to start your family soon!

Best wishes...
