Sorry it took a while to confirm everyone. My dad was diagnosed with cancer this week, so it has been a crazy week! Welcome everyone. I am the mother of two. Our oldest is 2 1/2 and was adopted at birth. We have an open adoption with her mother. I look forward to getting to know all of you and hear your stories.

Hello Everyone!!!  My husband and I adopted our first child in October of 08.  She is amazing!!!  We were at the hospital for her birth and spent the night with her there before taking her home at 1 day old.  I am also adopted (Korea) and my husband is African American.  Our little girl is African American and Caucasian.  We worked with a private agency in Michigan and we should finalize after our next supervision in March!

Hi I am Courtney, my husband Erick and I were at the hospital nursery when our daughter was born,  Danielle is 17 months and we don't remember life without her.  She is biracial AA/Causian.  She is wonderful and we hope to adopt again next year.

Hi, all--

I'm Jenn; my husband, Todd, and I have adopted three kids (so far). Trevor is 5, biracial Caucasian/African American; Sophia is 4, African American; Eryk is 2, African American. They are all fabulous kids, and we are enjoying our journey. I've been praying for a little girl to join our family and am hopeful.

I'm glad to be part of this group!

Hi, I'm Susan - My husband Q and I (caucasian) have 2 sons: Mackie is 3.5, African American, adopted at 2 days old; and Will, 8.5 weeks, Hispanic, came home at the beginning of December. Both are domestic adoptions, something we feel very strongly about. We live between Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC. We LOVE our agency - lots of programs for parents and kids in transracial situations, throughout life.

Hi,

I'm Katie & my husband is Jeff. We have 2 adopted children - Jackson almost 2.5 is african american/caucasion, adopted at birth and Jade - 15 months is full chinese, adopted from China at exactly 1 year old. I am so glad to have found this forum. There is a lot on Chinese adoptions, but it has been difficult to find a forum for questions regarding our son. Oh, by the way, both our kids are amazing!!!

Hi. I am new to the group,but I think it's wonderful. I'm Le-An and my husband is Shaw. We have three children that were adopted. All boys, ages 6,8,10. Christopher and Dalton are Caucasian. Landon's birth mother is Sioux Indian and his birth father is African American/Caucasian. Dalton and Landon were adopted at birth and we have an open adoption with their birth families. Christopher was seven at the time of the adoption and he was in the foster care system. We are in Nashville, TN. I was also adopted at birth. I found my birth family at age 26 and now enjoy a beautiful relationship with them as well.
