    I wanted to shoot you an e-mail thanking you for compiling so much great information and links on your website https://chittisterchildren.wordpress.com/resources/. I did find couple of broken links though!

    If you are still updating your page, the company I work for has a great link that is related to your site! The site is:

    Adding this resource will make your page even more helpful for future visitors.Thank you for your time and consideration.

  2. We are currently beginning our adoption process by searching for the right option of agency, lawyer, etc. I read your blog post regarding ANLC, and am sufficiently warded off… Do you have a suggestion for the best, most reputable adoption resource in Southern California?

    • You are not required to work with an agency in California, although some people prefer to work with agencies in their own states. Open Adoption and Family Services has a stellar reputation. The second time we adopted, we almost signed with Nightlight Christian Adoption’s Los Angeles office. I think those should be some good starting points.
      Good luck on your adoption journey!
