another possibility?

I get a message on my flickr page from an old FF girl...

(see if you can follow, it's kind of a "who's on 1st" scenario)

Shelli-This is the only way I knew to get in touch with you. I am contacting you on a long shot, forgive me if this gives you and Narda any heartache, but you two are the first people I thought of for this. BTW, this is Christy XXXX from Fertility Friend, we were using the same donor, XXX at one point in time through Fairfax Cryobank. My ex girlfriend's brother's girlfriend wants to give her baby up for adoption, he is only 7 weeks old. If you're interested, please email me and I will give you my cell number and we can chat more xxxxxxx@hotmail.com. Please understand I am not trying to bring heartache or anything to you guys, it's just a thought, that might help make a family for you. Best wishes and I hope you're well.

I have contacted Nicole (our faboo SW), and asked her to have the birthparents contact Spence-Chapin.

the baby is in Maryland. He is a bi-racial, healthy baby boy. (our dream scenario!)

It may not work, but it *could*

When one door closes...

Anyone know about intra-state adoptions between NY and Maryland?

I'm off to go google...

Maryland has a 30 day revocation period, that's all I know.

oh my! i'm wishing you all the best from Oregon. if you haven't already, check out the Interstate Compact rules between the two states. The adoption will go by the rules of the state where the birthmother lives (which you already know), but both states have to review the paperwork and agree that all the laws were followed before you can travel home. It usually takes about 10 days :)

Hey, you can stay with us while you work it out (if it's ok for you to be in DC not MD)! That would be so cool. Good luck a million times over!
