This is the blog for a new canadian adoption website. The site is called Adoption Connections and can be found at Although the site is based in Ontario, Canada, to date visitors have come from eleven countries and are welcome to participate. Have questions about the adoption system in Canada? Want to share your story or find others in your situation to talk with? Join in the Adoption Connections forums. Whether you are an adoptive parent, hopeful adoptive parents, considering adoption for your child, a birth parent, an adoptee or any other member of an adoptive or birth family, there is someone else at Adoption Connections who has been where you are now. The Adoption Connections forum is a way for those within the adoption community to support each other and to receive support from others who understand the trials, tribulations and joys of the adoption journey. We strive to offer a supportive environment where all are welcome.

Adoption Connections offers a Parent Registry where couples can have their profile displayed so that potential birth families can easily find the family they are seeking. Adoption Connections is a safe place to meet. Those considering adoption for their child can browse the parent profiles while in the privacy of their own homes without any pressures and may contact any couple they wish to at any time they feel comfortable doing so. This service is free for those considering placing a child for adoption.

Adoption Connections also offers consulting services on your profile. If you don't know where to start and would like a little guidance and direction, as well as feedback on your profile, I would be happy to assist you. I chose my son's parents based on their profile. Since 2004 I have assisted approximately 150 hopeful adoptive families in ensuring their profile is all that it can be.

We look forward to having you join us at

Warm Wishes,
