Why don't people get it?

I'm not sure how to quote more than one post so I won't try. Thanks for the acknowledgment eagleswings! Belle, I totally understand what you're saying. You put it very well! Patsymae, I realize that it's impossible to know someone's tone or body language through a post on a computer thread. I...

Advice on troubles with BM in a relative adoption.
July 31, 2014, 2:20 pm
Sorry if this is rambling and long. I am really not sure how to say this. We have what is supposed to be an OA with my brother and his ex-girlfriend. My AD has a wonderful relationship with he Uncle and will eventually know he is also he BF, for now it has not been even a question in her mind. ...
First Visit - Post birth & finalization
July 31, 2014, 12:31 pm
What we did when we had our first visit, we decided to behave like any time when we have any friends over. We prepared some lunch, while they were enjoying the baby without us hovering around, then we had lunch and had a chat, while we were all playing with the baby. We showed them his room etc....

Still not feeling attached to adopted daughter
July 30, 2014, 11:21 pm
I am so happy to come across people who feel what I feel and can understand me. I have felt like I was invaded and I want my life back for a while. My husband and I adopted 3 kids last year and they've lived with us for over a year. We don't have any biological children of our own, but lots of...
Do you tell the school?
July 30, 2014, 6:15 pm
My kids start pre-K this fall, and I do plan to tell the teacher, mainly because my kids are very, very talkative, and will randomly start talking about having a birthmom and how they didn't come out of my tummy. It can confuse the other kids who have never heard of adoption, and I want the...
Waiting To Be Matched - 2014 Edition!
July 30, 2014, 9:03 am
I've seen similar threads for past years, but nothing for 2014. So I thought I would start I thread for those of us who are waiting to be matched to chit-chat about our experiences (and, hopefully, share good news). So who is waiting to be matched? I started the process in October 2013, had...
Any Moms/Dads Have Trouble Attaching To Their Newly Adopted Child?
July 30, 2014, 8:37 am
It's good to see others have similar problems. We adopted K at 8, she's eleven, now. Only child. She's RAD diagnosed. I have no problem giving hugs, encouragement, and generally returning affection. But her earnest hatred during her frequent tantrums has succeeded in pushing me away. I do not...

How do I close an open adoption???
July 30, 2014, 6:21 am
I'm not sure what the legal procedure would be. I was assume it would depend on what state you live in etc. I can't imagine ever closing either of my adoptions, so I imagine your reasons must be extreme (at least I hope so) but if the child is in danger or if there is significant risk I imagine you...

Our second adoption - Birthmom smoking Pot
July 29, 2014, 8:18 pm
our son was born with marijuana in his system. most of the research that shows any effects at all often have not been able to control for oher factors, so it's difficult to know. We're open to marijuana (and honestly many other drugs-but not alcohol.) Our son is 3 and a half going on 12! Nothing...

So we're at my DD's (TT) first families house a while ago and to give a bit of back story TT was adopted from foster care. She's my husband's, best friends, grandchild biologically. So when our friends daughter lost her children to CPS we ended up with TT and it went all the way to adoption. My...
