Just venting!!!!!

Hello to all my fellow Puerto Rican friends!!!!!! I just wanted to see if there were any of you out there that have pursuited domestic adoption in the US while living in PR and who is/was your agency. My husband and I currently live in PR and we have been waiting for almost two years to be matched with a child. We already have our home study approved. Needless to say we feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and very sad. Please help!!!!! Thanks!!!!


Two years is a long time to wait.  It’s no wonder that you need to vent. 
Adoptive Families has lots of articles to help those who are waiting during their wait for their child. Perhaps some of them will be useful to you.

Also, we have the US Newborn Waiting Parents group which you can find support too.

Good luck!

Let me ask you something! why adopt in the US if there are so many kids in Puerto Rico waiting to be adopted. I live in Florida I’m Puertorican and I am adopting from Puerto Rico.
