I have had an influx of new readers lately. Welcome.
I encourage you to start by viewing The Best of the Blog, a series of posts nominated by my readers as some of my best. They also give you insight into my position on adoption, my experience, and the reason why I feel adoption should be a last resort and even then all ties to family of origin should be retained.
Additionally, if you are a prospective adopter, I recommend reading about the network of agencies that I surrendered my daughter to. You would be wise to avoid this network and more importantly question any agency that acts like them.
