adoption is awesome. i have seen it increase the quality of life of so many people - professionally, as an "adoptions specialist" for the state of california, and personally, from the experiences of friends and family who have adopted.
placing your child for adoption can be one of the most loving decisions you will ever make. if you cannot or choose not to raise your child there are plenty of people out there who can and will! if you or anyone you know has questions about adoptions, i am always willing to lend an ear and help out wherever i can (especially in california). if you or anyone you know is considering placing their child for adoption i can recommend two great families.
one of these families has an adoption blog set up here.
