I'm Andrea. I'm married, with 3 kids (one adopted domestically, 2 bio). I'm attempting to do an independent international adoption. The child has been located and I know what to do on the abroad side of things. I'm having a harder time finding out what are the MN state requirements and how to acquire a home study. Does anyone have any information that could help me on this?

We are from South St Paul and about 5 months in to the process. We are looking to complete a domestic open adoption. Looking forward to our first!

Domestic Infant Adoption Information Request

I am married for over 6 years and live in eastern suburbs of St. Paul. We are planning to adopt domestically using HOPE agency (Stillwater) services. If anybody has used or using HOPE for domestic adoption, please pm me your opinion/ feedback/advise.

Hi everyone -
This is my first time on an adoption forum. Im from the Western suburbs (Mtka area), am married, with a 9 yr old adopted daughter and an 8 year old bio daughter. Really looking for some support from others in very open adoptions. We have always had a good relationship with Birthfamilies, but things are changing as Birthmother just had another baby and she is parenting him. Would love to be able to share stories, advice, vent...etc with others going through similar situations.

Look forward to being a part of this MN group.

I'm from the Western Suburbs and I adopted my daughter domestically at birth. We have a very open adoption and I would love to get to know you all a bit more. I don't have anyone close who has been through this that I can lean on, vent to, celebrate with. This is great.

My name is Kasie we've been married for almost 10 years. Kaylen was a designated adoption, we did not seek out to adopt but when this situation came up we jumped at it. We finalized last July and couldnt be happier with our situation!

Smile Hello!

We are about an hour away from the twin cities. We have 3 biological children, and are hoping to complete our family through domestic adoption eventually. We are in the beginning of the process, but will be eligible for profile viewing soon! We are looking forward to meeting more people with experiences with domestic adoption, particularly when hopeful adoptive couples already have biological children at home. Find more about us at Biehn Adoption | Facebook! Thanks!

My name is Jim and I am an adult adoptee. I currently live in Fargo, but am from the Twin Cities and plan to move back in the next couple years. I'm currently in the process of finding my biological mother.
