But there is nothing like meeting and getting to know another birth mother who has walked that same path, cried those [...]

Nikki’s Adoption Story

Surprise!

Life is filled with many surprises and the arrival of a new baby is always an unexpected one. But in the world of adoption, "surprise" takes on a whole new meaning. For those adopting domestically, there is often not much notice when that long awaited call comes from the agency. And, what better way to pass that on then to catch others unaware. Share the [...]
