The other day, ABC ran a segment in Good Morning America about using Facebook for adoption. See the following link:
Couples are actively using Facebook to adopt, and we are routinely seeing this to expedite adoption in Columbus and throughout Ohio.
Many prospective adoptive parents were reluctant to get personally involved in the search for a birth parent who was willing to place her baby for adoption, preferring instead to delegate this important task to an agency or lawyer. Some believe that if an adoption is meant to be, it will just happen. Do you believe in magic? Times have changed. More couples are refusing to wait on an agency or lawyer to locate a child. There is no rule that says you must wait to locate a birth mother willing to place her child for adoption. Prospective adoptive parents have options.
Today the high demand for infants for adoption and birth mothers greater involvement in the match-making process means that passive adopters are likely to wait for years. Prospective parents are overcoming shyness and willing to publicize their search for a child to the outside world. More couples are taking the lead in the search for a birth mother willing to place her baby for adoption. They are using direct networking through Facebook and YouTube. By playing an active role in locating a child for adoption, couples can receive more information since they are directly involved.
A very fast and effective way to locate a birth mother for adoption is to use direct networking through media such as Facebook and YouTube.
