Webisode #4 - What's the adoption process like for an expectant mom?
Let's be honest — the adoption process can be complicated and overwhelming for anyone involved. One way to make it less confusing... work with someone who knows what they're doing and can help guide you through the process. That's why we wanted to talk to those out there who work directly with women and families who are pursuing adoption - whether they're placing their child for adoption OR hoping to adopt.
