No matter which side of the adoption triad you find yourself--adoptee, birth parent, or adoptive parent--there is ample information available to you. You'll read about adopting domestically and internationally, what to experience during pregnancy and how to sort through your options for an unplanned pregnancy, how to sort through emotions as an adult adoptee and how to begin the reunion journey, and advice for foster parenting and general parenting.

There is support available to all members of the triad--support groups, professional counselors, adoption professionals, and family and friends. Even though you may feel like it, you're never alone. If you need support, reach out for it. There is no reason to feel ashamed or embarrassed. It takes courage to ask for help, no matter your situation. You can also share your experiences and your wisdom with others in similar situations.

Whether you're looking to place or to adopt, it's important to sort through all of your options. Take the time to research and study. Don't make a final decision until you're ready. Once you feel that you're ready for the next few steps of your journey, move forward with hope and confidence.
