Group Description

This group is intended as a resource for adoptive and foster parents living in the State of Maryland. Others are welcome, but you may not find the resources and support you are looking for. We are focused on domestic adoptions; there are a number of other excellent lists in Yahoo Groups that deal with overseas adoptions.

If you are currently foster/adoptive parents who have a relationship with their local Department of Social Services, or those who are considering foster care or adoption, we'd love to hear from you. Parenting a foster child introduces challenges that many birth parents will never encounter much less truly understand. There are very few resources available -- we see a need and are trying to fill it.

Please keep in mind that any advice you get here should be used at your own risk. There is nothing that can replace sound legal advice and common sense.

My wife and I started this to reach out to other parents in Maryland who are looking for help, advice, or to just vent. We are not social workers or therapists, just friends sharing a common experience.

John and Andi
