Social media helps us expand our network to friends of friends (of friends, of friends). The bigger our network gets, the more likely we are able to find someone who wants to place a child for adoption.
What is Open Adoption?
Open Adoption is a form of adoption in which the biological and adoptive families have access to each other’s personal information and have an option of contact. In Open Adoption, the adoptive parents hold all the rights as the legal parents, yet the individuals of the biological and adoptive families may exercise the option to contact the family. This may be through letter and photos and/or face-to-face visits between birth and adoptive families.
Where are you on social media?
We're blogging (hh-adopt.blogspot.com), but we also have a Facebook page and Pinterest boards to help us get the word out.How does someone get in touch with you?
Through our I Heart Adoption site.
How does someone learn more about you?
We are Holly Guss and Heather Brown. Heather is an outgoing, creative person who is always willing to try something new. Holly is fiercely loyal and kind and can't wait to share the joys of reading, volunteering, and riding bikes with our child. We're so excited to become Moms through open adoption!
We've put together a web site that will tell you a lot more about us on the Independent Adoption Center (IAC) web site. In addition to that, you can check us out on Facebook and Pinterest. Please feel free to like us or follow our boards to learn more about us!
Whre are you?
We live in Durham, NC, but that doesn't mean you have to. We have heard many wonderful stories about open adoption families that live across country or up and down the coast. The IAC is licensed to handle adoptions in all 50 states and has offices in North Carolina, California, Texas, Indiana, Georgia, New York, and Florida.
NC is conveniently located in the middle of the East Coast. We're about an 11 hour drive to Memphis, 10.5 drive to Indianapolis, 9 hour drive to NYC, 8 hour drive to Columbus, OH, 7 hour drive to Philadelphia, and 2.5 hour drive to Charlotte. We're also about 3 hours away from the NC coast and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We make frequent trips to visit family in Georgia, Arizona, Florida, and New York and have friends and family across the country.
