The best advice that I can offer about starting off on the adoption process is to keep positive and to know that it's going to be a process. It's probably not just going to happen overnight. Keep marketing yourself. Use social media, Facebook, Twitter and personalized website. Spread the word through families and family friends that you are looking for a birth mother. Help educate people if it's an open adoption, what open adoption means. The best advice I can give is to just wait, your baby will find you. Never lose hope.
