Hi. Does anyone have any experience with an interstate private adoption? DH and I have a 14 month old daughter who was a micropreemie. Prior to her we had 3 losses and are pretty much guaranteed another high-risk pregnancy and potential loss. Given this possibility we have been discussing the possibility of adoption to expand our family. We informed my MIL of this possibility as DH and his 2 sisters are adopted. The other day she called us to say there is a woman at her church whose daughter may be looking to give up her child (as she's given up her previous 5 children). Obviously this is a HUGE maybe and we are not getting our hopes up but we are interested in the possibility.
So at this point I am more curious about what may be involved. The birth mom lives in Iowa and we live in NY. Prior to our micropreemie's birth we had met with an adoption counselor so are vaguely familiar with the process.
Thanks in advance.
