  • Adoption Status Updates for San Bernardino County
  • by CAfosadopt Last comment: Yesterday at 10:52 PM
  • WOW! That is great news! So happy for you!!! Your home study and license didn't seem to take a long time. We were told that we wouldn't be contacted by a home study worker until 6-8 weeks after PRIDE and licensing wouldn't happen until PRIDE was completed. Can't believe that you were able to get the presentation meeting the same day as your call. Is that how quickly it typically happens or...

  • by Fishes Last comment: 56 minutes ago
  • So the change of jobs and moving are definite possibilities but are not for sure. I wouldn't be moving or changing jobs until after the baby was born. Does this change anyone's advice

  • bmom blocking it all out.
  • by rmlf1 Last comment: Yesterday at 07:02 AM
  • totally understand, but one last important detail I had forgotten, I was able to find her and called her 20 yrs ago and she basically said she didn't want anyone to know ,she had blocked it and didn't want me to call her again, so I just forgot about it and let it sit, I was going through a divorce at that time and had to focus on that and my kids. so she knew I had some interest.

  • question about iep and 504
  • by parenting-over-40 Last comment: Yesterday at 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...

  • Why do I let myself get so excited?
  • by lovemy6 Last comment: 19 minutes ago
  • I felt the same each time I sent a homestudy out on children I was interested in. What I eventually found out is that although THOSE children were not a good fit for me, my heart had been opened up to situations that I would have thought I'd say no, but I was ready to say yes. Sometimes that excited feeling is b/c God is preparing your heart for what He has in store for you. Even if that isn't...
