  • Adoption Status Updates for San Bernardino County
  • by CAfosadopt Last comment: Yesterday at 10:52 PM
  • WOW! That is great news! So happy for you!!! Your home study and license didn't seem to take a long time. We were told that we wouldn't be contacted by a home study worker until 6-8 weeks after PRIDE and licensing wouldn't happen until PRIDE was completed. Can't believe that you were able to get the presentation meeting the same day as your call. Is that how quickly it typically happens or...

  • Should I share birth mom's letter to daughter?
  • by Beachy Last comment: Yesterday at 10:07 PM
  • My daughter is the same age as yours and honestly I wouldn't read her a letter from anyone at this age because unless it was from Sofia the First she wouldn't really pay attention to it or take it in. If it would make you feel good to read it then certainly do it but it seems like you would miss a good opportunity for a deeper conversation when she is older and better able to engage on the...

  • bmom blocking it all out.
  • by rmlf1 Last comment: Yesterday at 07:02 AM
  • totally understand, but one last important detail I had forgotten, I was able to find her and called her 20 yrs ago and she basically said she didn't want anyone to know ,she had blocked it and didn't want me to call her again, so I just forgot about it and let it sit, I was going through a divorce at that time and had to focus on that and my kids. so she knew I had some interest.

  • question about iep and 504
  • by parenting-over-40 Last comment: Yesterday at 08:13 PM
  • Ocean - We had a 504 at the beginning of Kinder last year but at mid-year an IEP was put in place. I was told the IEP replaced the 504 and was more enforceable. I am in Texas if that makes a difference. I agree with PP to take a parent advocate. You can take any expert with you to that meeting. There are people (physicians, parents, etc) who are experts in handling the IEP. I would try to...

  • by rogueflwrchld Last comment: Today at 05:27 AM
  • It sucks, I know. I will never say anything negative about any of my kids' bio parents to them, however do tell them things like, "She's not ready to be a parent. Mommy's aren't supposed to (leave their kids on the front porch etc)" or "Her mother never kept her safe so she doesn't know how to keep you safe." I am a realist and believe that it's my job to be real for my...
