From the Star Tribune: Couple make adoption a personal quest
After a decade of frustration and heartbreak, Kathy and Daniel Ollivier
of Minneapolis have launched an all-out marketing campaign to find a
baby. They're not the only couples to use these methods.

It’s mind-boggling that what they’re doing is not illegal. How is it not advertising to buy a baby?
In the last five years, instead of making fools of themselves and spending $10,000, they could have been fostering, and doing some good while waiting to adopt. But this type of parent always thinks they are above that.
Well, the best I can say is at least their signs and toll-free number are honest. What I hate are the APs who have bumper stickers and signs made up that say, “Problem Pregnancy? We Can Help,” and the toll-free number rings directly into the living room of the prospective adoptive parent . . . .
Yeah, I do give them some credit for being upfront about what they want. That’s all the credit they get.
I find this behavior repulsive on many levels.
