There are several answers that know more about the legalities of gag orders, however, re-read your agreement. Many times, the "gag" order is related to when you meet a young birth mom, and she doesn't want anyone to know her name. That should be respected, but your adoption attorney should be able to answer your question. No agency should have a gag order, unless it is just to protect the name of the birth parents. Also, I can understand where an agency could sue in the event that someone slandered them because they have found a birth mom, and sometimes, no matter what, bmoms are going to change their mind. The same agency should have another girl come in soon, however, I can see where that shouldn't be the agency's fault, because no one can predict human behavior.
