If that's the only reason to post the form yourself, you could request the
addition of an optional get parameter on the adoption page. If it's clear
that this parameter is intended to be used by third party services the
"stability problem" would be solved.

Otherwise, great idea!
Thanks for the comment!

Good catch! The 12-month period is important to mention. Putting the
"Read more" at the end sounds good to me, too.

In principle I agree, But here I do that on purpose (the purpose being
to prefill the "codepoint to adopt" field). Since the form on the
adoption landing page doesn't fill in values given via form submit, I
decided to re-build it and let it post directly to the next step.
