I thought a poll might be fun to see exactly who visits here. Even if you rarely (or never) post, please feel free to participate.

Thanks to those of you who have responded so far! I love that this group has such diverse experiences with adoption. I am in awe of you birthmoms and look forward to hearing the news of families that are adopting!

Laurie, any idea at all when that miracle match might be coming? I can't wait to celebrate with you!

Proud birthmom here. My daughter is 15 months old and I placed her into an open adoption.

I don't post very often, but I enjoy reading your success stories and hope to adopt two children someday. We're planning one more biological child in 2008 (we'll be 35 and 33 at that time). It would be nice to adopt a couple of "older" (hard to place) children about 10 years down the road. A good friend of mine adopted a 5 year old from a Russian orphanage last year. It's been an amazing experience for their family!

Our oldest daughter from China was 5 3/4 at adoption (last October), and she has adjusted beautifully to our family. If we ever adopt in the future (which I don't think we will, but I never say never ), we wouldn't hesitate to adopt an older child again. It has been a wonderful experience for our whole family, and Jacey is just precious. I always tell her that she wasn't adopted as a baby because God was saving her for us.

PS- Love your blinkie about Texas!
