    Hi everyone. We are waiting to adopt again and trying to spread the word through our networks. I figured I would ask you guys again. We don't know how long the wait will be this time, and you just never know who will know someone who is facing an unplanned pregnancy and considering adoption. A friend of mine had mentioned their hopes to her hair dresser and it happened that the hair dresser's niece was considering making an adoption plan. So you really never know!

    We made a facebook page since the last time I posted. I was hoping that those of you who are on facebook would be so nice as to "like" and share our page with your networks and help us spread the word that way.

    Here is the link to our regular page too.

    Thank you and wish us luck!

    Saw your site, and thanks for not only adopting, but also instilling a sense of wonder and respect for the environment in future generations. [​IMG]

    Thanks! Nature and the outdoors are pretty central to our lives. We live in the foothills of the blue ridge and its so beautiful here- now tha its warm we tend to be outside by default!

    Good luck with your adoption plans. We adopted our Hannah Rose 10 years ago. What a wonderful experience. It was as magical as giving birth, which I have also done twice:) I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Here is a picture of Hannah and I at the Baths on Virgin Gorda. She is my angel.

    Congrats! We are also doing foster care and adoption! I'm pretty sure we'll also do an international adoption one day.

    Thanks...she is so precious. She has been with us since she was 10 days old:) How many times have you adopted? It is such a wonderful experience. Good luck and I hope it all happens quickly for you.

    Just the once, DD will be three this fall- who knows if number two will be along by then or not. All we can do is spread the word and try to stay busy. At least DD and the farm keep us running!
