  • She Kept My Brother
  • by LoliLauren Last comment: Today at 01:33 AM
  • Nah, I'm good. On with my own life. Just because they dont want me in their lives is no great loss. On to why I got an abortion. I'm not getting into personal details as to why I did. It sucked but I had to do it. Was planning to get my tubes tied when I found out I was pregnant. So that was already a plan in motion. Do I regret what I did? Hell no. I have no reason to since I did the...

  • What you want is very extremely doable, but personally my spouse and I would also choose an Adoption Attorney who is local to where we live?? Most or all of Adoption Professionals should freely Advocate Reference Listings of both satisfied and dissatisfied clients!! If they do not Advocate this?? Then I would walk out!! I know of 2 both of 'State of the Art' and 'Stellar' Adoption Attorneys...

  • Happy 22nd Birthday, Natalie!
  • by BirthDad1991 Last comment: Yesterday at 09:38 PM
  • Okay, it's not quite the actual day, but in anticipation of Natalie's 23rd birthday, I have done a few positive things today: wrote a Happy Birthday letter [unsent], full of all things that I would like to put into a card or real letter. My last one was in 2011 before I gave her the option to continue a rather one-sided dialogue. That's the nice way of saying I've never heard a response from...

  • by littleredpandas Last comment: Today at 12:05 AM
  • I second what a pp said on "The Connected Child". It is an amazing book and will give you some great ideas on how to help discipline or teach children who have been traumatized. If time-outs don't work (as in she isn't learning anything from them) you may want to try time-ins. Re-dos are wonderful to (making them re-do a situation with an appropriate response). You can search this...
