Each expectant woman considering placing her child for adoption is looking for something special in the adoptive parent she chooses. What common factors do adoption agencies and adoption lawyers see in how birth mothers choose adoptive parents. How does age, marital status, health, and sexual orientation affect their choice? Host Dawn Davenport will interview Lark Cooper, the Intake Coordination for Children's Connection Inc, an adoption agency with offices throughout Texas; and Danielle Goodman, an Adoption Social worker in the Delaware office of Adoptions From the Heart. Both work extensively with birth mothers when deciding on placing a child for adoption.
