i would like to know if there is any information someone can send me in connection with the next scenario:
there is this one colleague that works with me, she told me this morning that she does not know what to do, her 17 year old sister just found out that she is pregnant, she wants to go for a abortion, but we are trying to discourage her not to go!! she can always give the child up for adoption, she is in anyway apparently to far to go for a adoption because she went to the clinic and they told her it's to late, but i am afraid that she might do something to herself, but not just that, that she might do something to harm the baby and that they will both suffer in the long run. so i need to please get some information about adoption and what we can do to help as she nor her family has got money to support the pregnancy and baby/s
It's impossible to give you advice on this issue. Every country - indeed many counties or states - have different rules about both adoption and abortion. You should contact your local social services department, or church group, and ask for more information on adoption options.
there are a 2 options as to what adoption route you can take in South Africa.

Did your friend got help. I not contact me. I can maybe be of help, we want to adopt a baby
Please let me know
Has your friend's sister found a home for this little angel. I am with a professional adoption agency and looking for a baby to adopt.
please let me know if she still needs a home for this baby.
My husband and I have no children and have so much to offer this baby.
I am married to my husband for 5 years, but I cannot give him a baby. I had a historectomy and would love to have a baby to whom I can give a great education, love and a great future. Please if anyone know of a baby that needs a love and caring home, please contact me. I am also Afrikaans spoken and a white female and It is really bad to hear about the hunderd abortions.
I wish there were more girls that would consider adoption, we have been waiting 15 years to adopt a white baby. When your heart longs to hold a baby and there just seems to be no hope, you pray that some girl somewhere would realize that she has the ability to give you the most precious gift.
The Door of Hope in Johannesburg South Africa would love to meet with this mother and help her figure out her next steps. You can contact them on 011-432-2913 or email doorhope [at] netactive [dot] co [dot] za. They also partner with organizations all of South Africa depending on where you are located.
I am looking to adopting a baby, bat it is not that easy. We are a white afrikaans speaking family and have 3 kids already. To adope a white child in south africa is not as easy. Where wil I find Help. We are good loving people that wil love a baby as our own
Please if you know of any one that ont to give there baby up for adoption please contact me
Thanks for your request. Our understanding from our experience is that there are not many white babies in South Africa who need adopting. Those that are available to be adopted are preferred to be given to couples who have no children and have no ability to have children of their own.
For me, the crisis in Africa is the non-white orphans, and I would encourage you highly to consider adopting across the culture and skin-colour divide. This creates an amazing picture of the new South Africa, and of God's Kingdom in which there is neither "Jew nor Greek".
God bless you for your desire to do such a wonderful thing as adopting an orphan.

PRETORIA ADOPTION SUPPORT GROUP (PASG)
The PASG was recently started, due to a need for such a support group in the Pretoria area.
The group offers support to individuals and couples considering adoption (transracial families, single parents, gay parents or any other family), as well as those who have already adopted their precious children. Meetings are held on the first Sunday of every month in order for adoptive families to socialize, share experiences and to offer hope and encouragement to newcomers. Please note that this is a social group, informal get-togethers to allow the children to play and parents to mingle.
A FACEBOOK page was created to provide additional information and a source for contact with all members. Please search for us on FACEBOOK or alternatively contact us on the following e-mail address: pretoriaasg [at] yahoo [dot] com.
