Sara, I know two couples who've adopted from Africa within the last 5 years.  One couple worked with All God's Children, and the other with Lutheran Social Services.  Both children were adopted from Ethiopia.  I know another couple who is currently waiting to be matched with a sibling group, who is working with Lutheran Social Services as well.  I am not sure about the cost of either....but I am sure both places would be able to give you ideas if you e-mailed them. (I know it's not cheap though.....)


Yesterday we got a few more pictures of our daughter... which were taken last week.  She is really different compared to her referral picture which was taken in June.  I can't help but think of how much we are missing while we wait for paperwork to process.  But she is adorable and healthy and being well cared for, so that is a comfort.

I Live in Idaho and I am trying to get some good advice on an Adoption agency for Africa. We are sure it is Africa and Not another Continent. But we are un sure of the right agency! There are so many with different qualities! We found one which has lower costs but I am not sure that it is the right one. We are wanting to adopt a younger sibling group.  Any advice would be great!! Thanks!!

So our bm invited me to her next appointment to see the u/s and hear the heartbeat. I am so nervous!!! What with all our heartbreak in the past I hate to get too involved but we really think this one is going to stick. And I don't want to say anything stupid or something like that. Ack! :) But I think I will go if I can get off my brand new only been on the job a week and a half job. yeesh

Our meeting with bm went well. She is a really nice young lady. She has some mental health issues and delays but it was harder to notice, she mentioned them. We found out she's having a boy! Which is exciting. There is some issues with bf not responding to the sw's letters so we aren't too sure what is up with him. But he has a warrant out so we don't think he'll be showing up at the court date. The bm and me had a lot of little things in common, it was almost creepy :) but all in all it went great we get along very well and connected well I thought. She's really sweet and we can't wait to get to know her better.
