Ok, so more questions…does anyone have experience with self-matching and/or independent adoption? While I assume the chances of matching that way are probably lower than the chances of matching some other way, I’m open to trying a little bit of everything. I’d love any feedback or suggestions that are available?


I know two adoptive families who connected with their children’s birth parents through people at work, so yes, these situations do happen.  Our own experience with a similar situation was a failed match.  Don’t know if that helps.
