  • Found my Birth Mom
  • by ingwa Last comment: Today at 08:03 PM
  • djgolfcan, as a 37 year old adoptee man, I can really relate with your post. A miracle has happened to me too, I found my birth mom after some 30 years. I was adopted young, and only this weekend found her and she's alive and well. You're on a rocket ship of emotions. There is nothing like this, and nothing could prepare you for this moment, but live in it and allow your inner self to heal. I...

  • Raven, your (sarcastic) comment of dreaming of placing your firstborn reminded me of a recurring dream I had over the years of giving birth and placing another child. It happened after I had my other two children and probably was because I wanted more children and my husband didn't. Occasionally, I would wake confused and wonder how many children I had placed! One thing I learned long ago --...

  • New possible birth father 3 years post finalization
  • by ruth74 Last comment: Today at 04:17 PM
  • I would also want to make sure he understands open adoption vs. shared custody. The reason I say this is because he is asking for "visitation rights" when that really doesn't apply in this situation. Before I agreed to anything I would want to be sure we were on the same page with what was agreed to, just to avoid conflict in the future. I wouldn't necessarily say that he isn't a good...

  • Taking a big vacation with fk ?
  • by peaceforall Last comment: 29 minutes ago
  • Our CW always approves our out-of-state vacations. The visits are made up when we get back if the parents are around and make a fuss. It has never been a problem. I only bring my paperwork that shows I am their foster mom. I do not have any birth certificates.
