Adoption is a notoriously difficult process but some couples are finding ways to circumvent old methods. Dan and Tracy of Minnesota shared their story of adopting a child via Craigslist with HuffPost Live host Nancy Redd.
"I had a list where I knew it was legal to place ads looking to adopt," Tracey said. "I kept it in states I knew we would travel to."
The couple received a phone call from Arizona on Tracey's 35th birthday.
"I knew it was the real deal. My gut just told me this was going to go somewhere," Tracey said, in regards to her first conversation with her son's birth mother.
When Redd pointed out the strangeness of finding your child on Craigslist, Tracey brought it full circle and said, "Dan and I met online so, it made sense to us that that's how we'd find our son."
