Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and the Internet are  significantly affecting how people adopt and the relationships within adoptive families.  Should you friend your child's birth mother or birth father?  Should you prohibit your child from contacting their birth family via the internet social networks?  What can parents do pre and post adoption. Our guests are Dr. Martha Henry, Director of the Office of Foster Care and Adoption Education and Policy, and a developmental psychologist; and Adam Pertman, Executive Director of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute, and author of Adoption Nation.
