Jess I'm sorry, but you're wrong. I work closely with a woman who has been desperately trying to adopt a CHILD (not baby) from foster care for years. She's single, which is why many adoption agencies won't consider her. She has fostered kids for years, but each time the child gets placed back with the biological family. I have two very close friends who have been on a waiting list to adopt an infant for three to five years.

There are not thousands of healthy infants waiting to be placed in homes. There just aren't.

I understand that anecdotal evidence isn't satisfactory, so here is a reliable source. There's plenty of information here.

http://www.adoptioninstitute.org/ressta.html

If you don't want to wade through the massive papers of documentation, here is one excerpt"

Quote:
The NSFG survey found that women currently seeking to adopt
indicated a preference for a child younger than 2 years old,
without a disability, and a single child rather than a sibling
group characteristics that are less common in children in the
foster care system than other traits
.
I want you to be right--I'd run to my desperately waiting friends and tell them about these thousands of babies that are waiting for them.
