Two close friends of mine have decided to go the adoption route after years of TTC and many losses.  It was just recently that they announced their intent to adopt.  I'd say it was about six months ago.  They got the news last week that they were chosen and would be bringing a newborn home in just a few short weeks (I really hope this happens for them, and nothing unforseen prevents it).  I'm so happy for them that they were chosen so fast, and this sounds like they got very lucky. 

My friends were all over with their own website, Twitter account, FB fan page, etc, but I think their match came from networking the old fashioned way.  Did you use social media?  Do you think it gives adoptive parents a better chance at being matched?
