Adoption In The News

Good Morning everyone! We’re half-way through the week and the sun is shining bright here at Adoption STAR Head Quarters.

Every morning when I arrive at the office the first thing I do is a quick search of Google for adoption terms (after I check into Facebook of course.) Today’s search was very interesting because at the bottom of the search, I found a result from 1925 from the “Evening Independent” in St. Petersburg, Fl. Apparently in 1925, a single wealthy man paid birth parents for the right to adopt their baby. It’s not clear if there was a law at the time against paying for the adoption, however there was a law against single/divorced men or women adopting children. It’s a quick story and a very interesting read.
