My husband and I are beginning to investigate adopting, yet are overwhelmed about where to begin. Is there anyone out there who has done it, especially when in their 40's? We'd like to adopt domestically, newborn to 12 months, give or take. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!

Hi Ellen, I have some friends that I can connect you to. Email me at and I can make an introduction. I think they would be happy to chat about their experience.

It was such a surprise to see your message because I'm in the exact same spot. My partner and I just started taking some steps.
Let's connect!

Hi there, we aren't adopters, but did go through the DHHS foster care training and everything (which I believe you have to do to be an adoptive parent in Maine). I'm happy to talk with you about it.
