          Adoption Stories

          October 13, 2004

          All this year, Dr. Phil will be following couples looking to adopt, supporting birth moms in finding the right families to place their babies, and looking for homes for foster children. Here are some of their stories.

          Hoping to Adopt
          Jack and Jill have been married for four years. After years of failed fertility treatments and an adoption that fell through, they are desperate to adopt a baby.

          Placing Baby for Adoption
          Rachel is 16 years old and five months pregnant with a baby girl. Recognizing that she will not be able to provide the baby with many opportunities, she wants to place her for adoption.

          Wishing to be Adopted
          There are more than 117,00 children in the foster care system waiting to be adopted. Many have been shuffled from foster home to foster home, and long for a permanent place to live.

          Dion, Ashley and Luis are three foster children who want a permanent family with parents who will love and care for them.

          Meet Dion, Ashley and Luis, three special children.
