I dont see many people posting in here, most post are old.

So I thought i would share my info, and if any one does have any Qs feel free to ask.

My husband and I have adopted. We started our process in OCT 2011 with the research. Started our home study in November, Picked and signed with our agency in March. Had to Failed Matches, with in 5 weeks. Yes back to back failed matches. Then in Aug we got a call on a Saturday afternoon. There is a baby born, and we are chosen as the parents. We need to be in X to pick her up by tomorrow!!!!

We said yes, went home, packed and had a flight, and were on a plane with in 5 hours of knowing baby bug was here. Now she is 4 mounts old, and is the most enchanting , wonderful thing in my life.

We are now doing home study follow ups, and have 2 more left to do. In early 2013 we hope to have our finalization court date.

You are right..this subsection of the board does not get a lot of traffic; so happy I happened to look today!

I have one adopted internationally and one adopted through foster care.

Thanks for sharing your story, I totally can relate!! As you probably can guess from my signature, The Biscuit joined our family through adoption.

We did a domestic agency adoption on the recommendation of one of my besties who used the same agency to do a gender identified adoption. We had a "pop-up" situation; the Biscuit was born one day, we were chosen and notified the next, and we took custody the day after that on his discharge from the hospital.

We are the second generation of my family to complete through adoption. My kid brother, a/k/a The Prodigal, joined the family through a private adoption back in the late 70s.

Congrats! Enjoy your little treasure and watch out -- this board can lead you into lots of stroller trouble (I am living proof!). :)
