I am a 29 yr old divorced mother of two. I am currently 2 months pregnant and have decided on adoption rather than abortion. Where can I find more info on adoption in SA, preferably private adoption. Is there perhaps a website. I only want the best for all three my kids and know that due to financial and emotional reasons I cannot keep my baby. I don't want another angel to grow up without a father and feel that a loving environment with both parents is better. Please help.

Dear Mother,
I hope some of our other readers can give you a good answer on this one, as I don't work in that specific area. You can try a search on ( and I hear they are opening or maybe have already opened, a local SA goodle site, for "adoption agencies, South Africa " and se if there is a website. Also, I would have though that if you phone your local child welfare organization, they would be able to refer you to the right agencies.
