What is a stork drop? In adoption a stork drop is when a baby has been born and is available for adoption. The mom has not made prior adoption plans and has arrived at the hospital to deliver. When couples come to us who want to adopt, this is usually their first request..to be matched with a baby that has already been born. What typically happens though is that there is no history available. There are no medical records..and most often there is no information about the father of the baby. Without any of this information, many families choose not to move forward. If you have been waiting to adopt, I encourage you to step forward and take that “leap of faith” that we always talk about. Don’t over think. Adopting a baby takes a heart full of love, not a brain full of knowledge.
