Adoption resources

When you come across helpful sites in your research, post them here so we can get a good list going. I'll compile them into a large list of both domestic and international resources.

I just had a phone call from ROBEEZ (pronounced Robbie's)
They are sending us 25 pairs of little shoes to take to other children in Colombia when we go!
They want you to have at least 6 weeks before you travel in order to receive the shoes in time.

here is the link to the Heart and Sole Program.

Thank you!
