    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...

    Thinking about adoption

    2
    I am new to this group. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 8 year now. A few years ago we finally were at a place and decided to do fertility testing. There really is not a specific thing that the doctors can say is wrong (in my opinion). I have a low egg reserve and that is it, my OB didn't seem to think it was not possible for us to get pregnant on our own with that...

    Looking to adopt my unborn

    It would be a long story but I have two kids from a prior marriage. My divorce was finalized in August. My ex husband and myself have had substance abuse issues in the past and I knew I would have to divorce him and start over with my kids so that I can live a clean/healthy life. I called myself having a little fun and am shocked to learn I am 11 weeks prego. I have met a lot of people from the...

    Thinking of adoption

    I have two very beautiful little girls, and I just found out I'm pregnant. I can't support three kids. I can't bring myself to abort so adoption is the best choice but it's also killing me to think of adoption

    This doesn't happen very often but tonight I just miss my baby. I have thoughts of holding her in the hospital the day she was released and just thoughts of her smiling face. She is four years old now and she's been with her adoptive family since birth so I don't know why this is coming up now.I can't even stop the flood of tears. I'd give anything to hold her again.... just for a moment... to...

Just having a dog, which we love dearly, is not enough. We have preferences but don't have alot of money for the process. Any ideas of were to start. Of course, we may not have much money but it's enough to care...

    Will I ever meet my Bdad??

    1
    When my mum adopted me out she didn't tell my birthdad she was pregnant so as far as I know, he doesn'tknow I was born. I have tried asking for information butall she will tell me is his first name, so I have nothing togo on if i want to search. I feel really sad cause i shouldhave the right to know him, as he has a right to know me.
