Sorry to lurk but I figured this would be a good place to get an answer. I volunteer for a sex education program for middle school/high school/ and even collage age youth. Our program has very little in the way of funding and really relies on it's volunteers to have up to date info and resouces for our class. Our info on adoption I feel is rather lacking and I was wondering if any of you knew of any good user-friendly web sites that has good info for ladies that may want to seek adoption as an option? Everything I've been able to find so far as more for if you want to adopt vs. giving to adoption. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Well, if they're pregnant and looking for a family, parentprofiles.com is a huge one. TN allows private adoptions so I would think if they know they want to adopt out their baby that would be a good option. It'll give them more control over the family that gets the baby and allow for a better relationship. Also, I believe (but am not sure) that all states allow the adoptive family to pay for legal and medical expenses.
I'll see what I can find for resources though. One good option could just be meeting with a local adoption lawyer (with no consult fee) and asking for info you can give the girls.
Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!
