Adoption is the legal act of permanently placing a child with a parent or parents other than the birth parents. Whether you are looking to adopt, putting your child up for adoption, parenting an adopted child, or just thinking about it, this is the place to discuss.

    The Birth Mother

    0
    Last year I made a really bad mistake, one that now, can be marked as I am young and just didn't know any better at the time, and a total accident. Regardless of specifics DFS is not "comfortable" returning my daughter to me. I completed every service, got mental health treatment, stayed sober. Everything they wanted, but my account of the accident doesn't work for them because of what the...

    I am a girl who was adopted 18 years ago. As I have just turned 18, I can now legally and independently seek my birth mother and ask questions about my heritage/medical history, all things she neglected to include on my papers upon my adoption.If you're a birth mother, do you want to be found by your adopted child?How big of a part does nature play when a child is adopted from his or her natural...

This is a sad story and makes me emotional but I will explain it. so when my birth mother was pregnant with me, she drank very heavily, she did a bunch of drugs and crap...but then after she gave birth to me in the hospital, she had to go to another hospital to be treated for tuberculosis and never returned for me, not even birth relatives showed or bothered to visit...

    So I work at a hospital where I see babies being born every day.  A lot of these babies are born addicted and the hospital has to contact CPS more often than they should have to.  My husband and I have been struggling with infertility for about 4 years now.  We have looked into adoption but haven't made any moves yet.  Well about 5 months ago I get a call from one of my friends saying her...

    Adoption meeting

    I finally got to a place I feel I am ready to explore adoption. I finally got the courage to bring it up to my husband. He is super supportive just was not sure if he would be okay with adopting which I feel is a process that people that choose that goes through. At least it was in our case. I found an agency to go to for a meeting, and would like to look into adoption from foster care as well as...

    I am cross posting this in a couple of groups because it deals with several issues (someone once called me a troll because of this).I was adopted at birth and didn't know much about my biological parents until I was 25, at which age I had stopped seeking out information, grieved the loss of never meeting anyone biologically related to me, and decided to close that chapter of my life. When my half...

    Foster mom needs help!

    I am posting on this website because it seems like this is a good place to turn. Laura has lived her life as an advocate for others, she raised a child as a single parent who went off to college and joined the Navy, began foster parenting and over the past 15 years has fostered over 70 children in the RI foster care system!  She even adopted one of the children she had been fostering for many...
