Hi ladies, I just wanted to say a quick hello and thanks to KL24 for starting this group again. It was not easy finding it but I'm glad I did. My husband and I have been going back and forth for a few years now and after gathering a lot of information, we have decided (I think) to fervently pursue adoption. We have a birthmother letter ready, have met with an agency, and have met with an adoption attorney. The process is pretty much just waiting on us. We do want to enlist as much help as possible in finding a match. So we're at the point of how many family members to tell and what all to tell them. Does anyone have any advice on this?
