  • End of a deep friendship

  • think the worst thing I found, was that I have got stuck in a loop, so rather than doing better things, I was just going round and round over and over the situation thinking that might improve things

  • How do I close an open adoption???
  • by Pennmom76 Last comment: Today at 05:30 PM
  • Or at least stop visits. I was told years ago if it ever came to this that I just need to petition the court to stop visits. So how do I do this??? Both birth parents have violated the agreement multiple times and where we are OA agreements are legally binding. Btw, I emailed both of our attorneys and BOTH are on vacation lol just my luck !

  • Bulgaria Wait Time
  • by Myriam24 Last comment: Today at 12:51 PM
  • Since this thread is about adopting from Bulgaria, I was hoping maybe someone could have an answer for me. I am looking to adopt a little girl 5 years old from Europe. I am pretty sure she is from Bulgaria. I am presently living in Canada, but I have European citizenship as well. Is is easier for me to adopt from Europe, or from Canada? Thank you for your feedback

  • Question for Parents Considering Adoption For Baby
  • by GenericFosterParent Last comment: 27 Jul 2014 01:59 PM
  • Would you ever choose a family with four children to adopt your baby? I have three biological children, and then lost my husband to a motorcycle accident when the youngest was 13 months old. Then I remarried three years later, and we are unable to have any more bio children. We are in the process of adopting our long term foster daughter (she's been with us more than half of her life and is...

  • by dannyssister Last comment: Today at 08:26 AM
  • Hi thank you so much for your willingness to help. I am just beginning and still unsure of best way to go about it all. The only other info I have is that Joan's sister was Rhoda Bard and was believed to have married name of Pressler. Also believe that Joan was going to bring Daniel up Jewish. Not sure if there's a way to search Bronx mitzvah records. His mitzvah date would have been...

  • by jennjoom Last comment: Today at 12:42 PM
  • I'm not single but we are in the process of adopting a ten year old girl. She has been with us for one year. She is incredible and a delight to our lives, but there are times when I wish she had got here when she was 5 or 6 years old. There again, we also have biological kids, and there are times when I wish other things about them! I personally think that horror stories get more press than...

  • by mamateacher Last comment: 26 minutes ago
  • I talk about adoption with Bean fairly regularly. She's almost 3 and doesn't understand it completely yet, but she talks about her adoption and her adoption party. She is learning more watching PJ go on visits to see her biomom and has asked a couple simple questions. We've talked about how she had another mom who couldn't take care of her so God gave her to me and I'll be her mommy forever. We...
