Using Facebook for adoption

When we were starting our adoption process, we knew that we had to market ourselves. So we set up a Facebook, a Twitter, and a Myspace. We didn't find that Myspace was quite helpful for us, so we focused a lot more on Facebook and Twitter and, of course, building our website. We would update, frequently, our Facebook and update with pictures of what we were doing. For families, a potential birth mother could find out more about our family. Our birth mother did find us through Facebook. She had a friend who was looking around and came across our Facebook page. The rest is history.
