MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS SCAM FOR OVER 4 YEARS NOW. OUR DREAM WAS TO ADOPT A CHILD AND WITH ADOPTION ADVANTAGE THAT NEVER HAPPENED. THE ONLY THING THAT HAPPENED WAS OUR MONEY WAS STOLEN AND CAN'T BE FOUND. WE TRY EVERY DAY TO MOVE FORWARD BUT I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO ACCEPT OR BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE ABLE TO GET AWAY WITH HURTING AND STEALING SO MANY COUPLES DREAMS AND MONEY. HOW IS THIS RIGHT? WE ARE STIL HURT, IN DISBELIEF, AND ASTOUNDED THAT HE IS STILL ABLE TO PRACTICE AND DECIEVE MORE PEOPLE. THERE IS ONLY WRONG, WRONG, WRONG IN WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO MY FAMILY AND SO MANY MORE COUPLES. NO EXCUSES ARE ACCEPTED IN OUR CORNER FROM ANYONE THAT HAS HAD OR STILL DOES ANYTHING TO DO WITH ADOPTION ADVANTAGE OR SAID PERSONS. MY HUSBAND AND I PRAY JUSTICE WILL SOMEDAY BE SERVED TO ALL THAT IS RESPONSIBLE. THEY WILL HAVE TO LIVE AND ANSWER TO GOD WITH KNOWING THAT SOMEONE'S DREAMS WERE STOLEN ALONG WITH A FINANCIAL HARDSHIP THAT IF WERE PLACED IN THERE LAP WOULD THEY ACCEPT AS WE HAVE HAD TO DO? WERE IS THE JUSTICE?????????

Looks like it finally happened!

Adoption Advantage sued by Attorney General.

http://arkansasmatters.com/fulltext/...

"Attorney General Dustin McDaniel announced today that his office has filed a consumer protection lawsuit against a now-defunct Little Rock adoption agency, its owners, and a former employee. The lawsuit, filed today in Pulaski County Circuit Court, names Adoption Advantage, Inc., its owners, Ed Webb and Donna Gail Webb, and former employee Jaclyn Potter.

The complaint alleges that the defendants, who claimed they specialized in domestic infant adoptions, deceived prospective adoptive families with false promises of available birth mothers seeking adoptive families for their infants and that the defendants charged thousands of dollars in up-front fees. The company promised that if couples would sign a contract and wire the money they could “immediately” adopt a child. These promises were made when no infant was then available for adoption and the company had no expectation of providing the services contracted for.

“Many of these consumers gave their entire savings to Adoption Advantage in hopes of finding a baby to adopt,” Attorney General McDaniel said.“This company has not only deceived consumers and taken money, they have crushed the hopes and dreams of individuals hoping to complete their families.”

The lawsuit seeks a permanent injunction to bar the defendants from representing that they can facilitate adoptions and from charging or collecting any fees in connection with such services. In addition, the lawsuit requests restitution for affected consumers and asks the court to impose civil penalties upon the defendants. "

"the lawsuit requests restitution for affected consumers"
What does this part mean. Are they trying to get our money back? If so does this part even do any good if there is no money for them to pay with.

Donna Gail is operating another adoption agency in Memphis. I am not positive, but I think the name is "All for you Adoption".

They really hurt a lot of Birth mothers! Today is my son's 7th Birthday. Before they went down, I got pix 2-3 times a year and a yearly phone call on his birthday. I am sad today.

Donna was the worst one in the agency, she treated me kindly until my baby was gone, then before my ten days were up to change my mind, she refused to talk to me when I wanted to keep him. They knew I was married when preg and told me to lie and say I did not know where the father was. Why would she start in TN unless she had something to hide? She can't run from herself forever....The news is getting around!

I placed my daughter with adoption advantage in december 2005. Her adoptive parents are melissa and drew. I got pictures regularly for the first year then it all stopped. My daughter is 6 now her name is kathliyn, kate for short. I lived in jonesboro arkansas when i placed her and her adoptive parents lived near baltimore maryland. Her parents are awsome and even sent pics every month to help me with my pain. Melissa and drew if you read this please contact me at mandi.mahan@gmail.com i just would like to know how kates doing and to see her pictures.

Hi everyone
I dealt with adoption advantage in 2007 when I placed my twins KENDALL and KADEN up for adoption. I met with the adoptive parents and they were very nice and kind and I felt comfortable with my decision. I received pictures and phone calls once a year. I have not heard from them since 2009. If anyone knows KEVIN and SHURREE from Lil Rock Arkansas or if you guys are reading this could you please contact me at MONTRAE348@YAHOO.COM I just want to know how my kids are doing as any parent would.
