  • Help for my adopted husband
  • by loveajax Last comment: Yesterday at 07:09 PM
  • Hi! I am also married to an adoptee though the situation is somewhat reversed. He always knew he was adopted, found his bmom, really wanted to meet her and she would not meet him (he was a secret). But I remember it being a very intense time and feeling like I was not being as supportive as I could. But the reality is is that he had to deal with it in his own way (he is not a big...

  • PA Adoption Help
  • by LockerNo333 Last comment: 26 Jan 2015 08:42 AM
  • Hi All, My husband and I are from PA, and we are looking to adopt. I am trying to keep this short, otherwise I will write way too much. I have a slight question about the PA infant adoption policy, and I was hoping someone in PA could assist me. Q1 - If I live in PA, can I adopt from a different state? Q2 - If I can adopt from another state, how do the laws work? Does the agency I go...

  • Most people are not willing to give up there kids, most kids if the parents can't afford to take care of the child then other family members would. " it takes a village to raise a child" . Most kids are often adopted by family members living overseas

  • by Reunionsarehard Last comment: Yesterday at 03:28 PM
  • Thank you all for responding. I have received very good suggestions that I will implement. Your support has really helped. Sometimes when we are going thru things we can feel so alone. Especially when we know no one who has gone thru the same things. My friends have been awesome but they really don't get it. Thank you so much!! A funny thing has happened. My original question was should I keep...

  • Your date of birth will be correct; the place of birth on your amended birth certificate would have been changed to show you were born wherever the adopting parents were living at the time of the adoption.

  • Question from a frustrated Aunt
  • by murphypatrick12 Last comment: 25 Jan 2015 01:17 PM
  • It is because the child will try to push the primary parent away by forming quick and superficial bonds with others. By blocking this from happening the child is forced to rely on the parent. They learn that they can count on and trust that the parent will provide and be trustworthy. This rule also prevents others from reinforcing the child's attempts to go to others rather that the parent. Your...

  • by HereWeGoAgain Last comment: Today at 01:54 AM
  • Goober was average size at birth. Spent his 1st year in the 95 percentile range for both height and weight. (That was rough carrying around a 30lb infant that couldn't walk yet!) His head was in the 40ish percentile range though. As soon as he hit about a year his growth slowed. Height percentile slowly dropped and he is now, at 3 years old, in the mid 40s percentile. Weight dropped but not as...
