This site assists with ways to induce lactation as well as other options available. Keep in mind there is more to breastfeeding than just breastmilk. Some mothers chose not to go the induced lactation route but just to feed their baby with a Supplemental Nursing System formula at the breast in order to have the bonding experience of feeding their baby at the breast. http://www.asklenore.info/breastfeeding/induced_lactation/gn_protocols.shtml .
Florida Lactation Consultant Association website at http://flca.info/resourcedir.htm This is a great resource for finding a lactation consultant.

This site provides a supportive community where members share their experiences/insights. People are seeing patterns emerging. This is facilitating successful adoptive nursing experiences.This is a nice site for perspective adoptive mothers to visit. http://www.fourfriends.com/abrw/
