TAYLOR, Mich. – A couple raising three boys turned to MySpace.com in search of a baby girl. Now, they say they've found an expectant mother who is willing to let them adopt her baby.
Sherry and Karl Dittmar of Taylor first posted their request for a baby girl on the popular Web social site in April.
They said an unidentified Detroit-area woman orally agreed to give them her daughter upon her birth in July.
The deal follows contacts from among 800 messages the Dittmars got after creating the site April 21.
MySpace "does work," Sherry Dittmar, 32, told The Detroit News for a story Tuesday. She had her first face-to-face meeting with the woman and her family at a restaurant last week.
"They are wonderful people," she said. "It's exactly what we've been wanting."
She and her 33-year-old husband became legal guardians of two boys seven years ago. Ronald now is 11, and Joseph is 9. The couple are biological parents of Wyatt, 5.
She said her ovarian condition complicated the couple's effort at conception.
She said she would accompany the woman to a doctor appointment and take her shopping to "pick the crib set for the baby."
"I want her to feel that her baby is sleeping in the blankets that she picked out," she said. "I want her to be a big part of the baby's life."
MySpace.com is owned by NewsCorp, the parent company for FOXNews.com and FOX News Channel.
