The private forums are for our active members. If you are new, or inactive, you'll only be able to post in the public forum.

Please understand, it's important in our adoption journeys, to have a safe place to vent, ask questions and discuss sensitive issues. Our only priority is create a space for pre and post adoptive parents to gather online, in a caring and nurturing environment. :pink

Access to our private forums will be given when you've become active enough in the public forum that we feel we know you enough. There is no magic number or length of time, it really depends on you. Here are two tips that may help:

1. Introduce yourself first. You don't have to give your life story (unless you want to), but sharing information about yourself, such as what led you to adoption, is a good way to help us get to know you and visa versa.

2. Browse the topics in the Adoption Information And Questions and add your thoughts to as many as you can. You can also start your own topic and ask any adoption related questions that you want.

We're looking forward to getting to know you!! :thewave

Your Adoption Connection: Beginning our family through traditional surrogacy
Will someone contact us to let us know we've gained permission or do we just keep trying to click on the forum we're interested in and eventually be let in? (ie. the pre-adoption forum...how do I know if I'm ever authorized to view that forum?)

Thanks for the info! :)

You can post anything related to adoption in the Adoption Information And Questions forum. There's no need to wait or keep checking the other forums. You just joined yesterday so I wouldn't worry about that right now.

When you feel you've been here long enough and have gained a good reputation here, you can PM Linny and ask for access. She's the one who usually handles that.
