  • What was your timeline?
  • by Mommyof3ks Last comment: Yesterday at 07:58 PM

We had biological children already, in fact our youngest bio is nearly 10, and we adopted a baby. As for getting pregnant and adopting at the same time, only you know what you can handle, but having kids close in age is not a...

Things change over time and you could say something like "I know you said no contact when I was younger but I am older now and thought I would check if contact would be...

So I'm not understanding this. I've never had a kids, that I watch, that's like this. When he leaves someplace, gets time out or even when someone tells him not to do something, he says he hate that person , he...
