Birth mothers and adoptive families are connecting on the internet these days. This is a new development that didn't exist in the early days. The internet didn't exist many years ago. Now, the reality is, the internet is allowing couples and birth moms to connect. They are doing it through Facebook. They are doing it through websites that they are putting up. They are doing it through emails to each other. People are connecting that way. There are certain dangers inherent in making matches that way. Those dangers are that you don't know who you are dealing with, so adoptive parents can hear about a birth mother on the internet. They need to make sure that it's a legitimate person and that she's really pregnant. They need to make sure they are not sending money when it's not permissible to do that. I would just caution people when they are going through the internet, they need to have an adoption expert professional advising them to make sure they are complying with the laws, and they are working with good candidates for adoption.
