  • Cannot proceed to home study due to location of bathroom
  • by garrettmorton Last comment: Yesterday at 04:30 PM
  • Hi, my spouse and I are looking for some guidance here from anyone who is familiar with NYC foster home regulations/requirements. We found a great organization that we did our MAPP training with. When the organization came to our home to do the 1st home visit (the step before the home study) we were told that we cannot proceed because the only bathroom in our 1 bedroom apartment is located in...

  • chosen by a birthmother and uncertain how to proceed
  • by belleinblue1978 Last comment: Yesterday at 09:52 PM
  • Dpom, If she wants honesty from the expectant mother and an honest open adoption she had probably better be honest about all the possibilities of job changes and moves, even if the move is only an hour away. If she doesn't tell the truth she is basing a very important relationship on a bed of lies. Mothers of origin would be skewered for that.

  • Getting Worse by the Year~
  • by DamagedGoods Last comment: Yesterday at 08:19 PM
  • Hi Heartland. I really feel for you. I lost my son to adoption 27 yrs ago, also ran far away, 2800 miles. Still running. It gets worse every day. Actually, it is so bad these days that it finally pushed me to find this forum. Maybe I can find help here from people like you. Thank you for sharing.

  • question about iep and 504
  • by parenting-over-40 Last comment: 31 Aug 2014 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...
