Secrets to Your Successful Domestic Adoption - Insider Advice to Create Your Forever Family Faster

Deerfield Beach, FL, October 31, 2010 - A social worker, birth mom, and adoption advocate, Jennifer Joyce Pedley shares her proven strategies and unique insights for finding the perfect adoption match. This is a must-have guide for a faster, successful open domestic adoption; oftentimes without the red tape and wait times of a traditional agency.

Adoptive parents are the ying to the birthparents' yang; so different, but yet without the other, neither are complete. This is the pull that author Pedley, a birth mother and licensed social worker, understands so well. Based on both years of experience in the field of adoption, as well as a birth mother in a successful open adoption with her now adult son, Jennifer Joyce Pedley shares practical, comprehensive, and legally sound advice for taking charge of your adoption process in her book, Secrets To Your Successful Domestic Adoption: Insider Advice to Create Your Forever Family Faster (HCI Books -- $15.95).

Pedley takes the reader by the hand and demystifies the domestic adoption process, explaining exactly why it can be preferable to connect with an expectant mother directly rather than using the facilitation of a traditional agency.

Potential families will find:

* How to bridge the digital divide and avoid the pitfalls of the Internet
* Do's and don'ts of the latest methods available, including classified advertising, written profile, and even video to thoughtfully market your family
* Critical information about the home study process
* Help in identifying red flags commonly associated with an expectant mom's decision to parent.
* Ideas for incorporating adoption especially the topic of birth parents, into everyday life in ways that are practical, creative, and child-centered.

In addition, Secrets To Your Successful Domestic Adoption carefully examines many of the legal considerations of domestic adoption including clarification of types of agencies, the roles played by facilitators and attorneys, plus essential information on Interstate Adoption. With warmth, experience, and passion, Pedley is a wise advocate and mentor in this must-have resource.


Jennifer Joyce Pedley, MJ, is a birth mother and social worker who has been helping people build their families through adoption since 1995. It was her own personal experience of placing her son in an open adoption, following his birth in 1990, which prompted her to become a social worker and make the field of adoption her primary professional focus.

Pedley is a founding board member of the On Your Feet Foundation; the first of its kind, a not-for-profit organization established in 2001 to provide ongoing support to birth parents after making an adoption plan for their child. Support is in the form of both monetary scholarships as well as in the establishment of a formal support network for women who previously would have kept their adoption choice a secret. In 2003 she established and began co-facilitating therapeutic weekend retreats for birth mothers. Today, On Your Feet For Life retreats continue to be held biannually and, to date, have engaged hundreds of birth mothers from all over the
United States.

Pedley lives in Michigan with her husband and two young sons. She continues to maintain close ties to her birth son as well as with his adoptive family.
