Try www.parentprofiles.com and search Nevada. There are several couples there with approved home studies and they have their agencies listed. Good luck to you. It's a very tough choice. I will tell you that the vast majority of infants placed in open adoption situations do not end up in foster care. That scenario is really blown way out of proportion on this site. See my profile for what is more likely and common. Feel free to PM if you want to chat.

My friend JUST completed her adoption of three brothers after 18 months of them having the kids in their home. AMAZING story

Great thread. Just found it. We adopted my son at 14 months old from foster care after trying for 4 year to get pregnant. Amazing experience. Any questions feel free to ask.

Hello girls! I am pregnant with #1, our daughter Ashlyn is due March 19th 2012. However, my boyfriend and I have decided that we'd like to begin the adoption process for a little boy right around the same time, because we know it takes a while. We want to have two babies around the same time, a boy and a girl, because we want to wait a long time before having any more. We've done a lot of thinking about this, so it's not up for discussion, honestly- all I want is support and information. Hope that's okay with everyone! :P



How are you all? What are your stories?

Yes. That is our plan. We would like to start our family sooner rather than later, and find ourselves lucky to be in the position now to do so. I'm pretty good about researching and such, and being in foster care and adopted myself, I am well aware of the extra challenges and such.



I like to kind of look at it like this: some families are blessed with twins, and they somehow make it work- from zero to two- and I think we can do it.



I'm really just looking for people to talk to about it, and get the emotional support and maybe some resources regarding birth mothers& such. :]



What are your guys' stories?

Were going through the foster care route. But were still in the paper work stage.

What made you decide to adopt? How old is your daughter?

I have always wanted to adopt. Theres just so many kids out there that need a loving family, and we can give that to them. My daughter just turned 2 last month. Were hoping for a boy 3-5 years old.

That sounds kind of like our situation. That's exactly what we're wanting to provide for a baby . :)

My husband and I have been trying to adopt since August 2010. We are signed with a reputable adoption attorney in Rogers, Arkansas that can help facilitate an adoption within the states. We know God has a plan for us AND the birth mother He will orchestrate into our lives. It has been most humbling putting myself out here on BG but it just takes one encounter....

Awesome thread.



I'm interested in adoption, we both would like a little girl. Also knowing my chances of getting a girl after having 2 boys and with hemmoraging after both births......adoption seems the safer route.



Any information I could get on the process of private adoption and foster care and costs would be appreciated!
