Birth parents seeking a loving home for a 6-month unborn child. We are looking for decent foster parents (christian, married couple) who could provide a good education, a caring home and a loving family... ones who can provide good values and upbringing to our child in an environment a growing child deserves. We are hoping to find loving parents that could maintain honesty and will be able to make the child understand the situation right from the very start. Looking forward to discussing this further. Please note that we are not offering the child in exchange of money, just an assurance that our child gets what any person deserves in life. Assistance for medical requirements are welcome and will greatly be appreciated. #1

We are a young married couple in our 50's. We would like to adopt a Filipino child (girl or boy) and bring to Australia as we live here. What is the age limit to adopt or is it a case, by case situation and, does it really have to be so expensive to adopt? It deters genuine would-be-parents from adopting because not many would have the $14,000 to $20,000 that's required. Why can't that money be put towards the infants' welfare and future? We would gladly sponsor more children once our adopted child was here with us. #3
