I went to a general store but they wouldn't let me buy anything specific.
Often we need or want to purchase an item that is adoption specific or birth country specific. More often than not, you can't find these items at the local stores. Here is a list of some helpful venders that fill this need. Maine companies are listed first in order to help boost our local economy. National catalogs are listed second. If you don't see your favorite adoption related business, let us know, and they will be added.
