Suggestions for Visits with Tween Girls?
September 22, 2014, 7:14 am
Craft projects -- possibly something girly -- can be fun to do in an air conditioned place. You can buy things in a craft store, etc. A bead kit is nice, so the girls can make bracelets or whatever and take them back to their foster home. It's not that expensive, and you can sit with them,...

New to the Board?, stop by say Hi!
September 22, 2014, 6:17 am
cspradling1973 - Welcome! Thanks for stopping by to say hi! I agree, it's hard to discuss an agency if your not finished adopting. I've never used an agency but felt that way about our foster care agency. It was a great but horrendous experience that I didn't tell a sole about. Good luck on your...
Has anyone gone through an independent (private) adoption in TX?
September 21, 2014, 11:42 am
We did private adoption in Montgomery County. I don't think you can do it without an attorney. Even if you can, don't. You need to make sure every t is crossed and i dotted in adoption.

Adopting a teen as younger parents...
September 19, 2014, 8:25 pm
as a father who adopted a 9 year old and he is now a teen (14) I would advise against it. There is so much that comes out that can cause some serious drama in your house. It can really scar your younger children if they're not used to it.
Anyone read Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline?

Thanks, ladies! Belle, I'm glad to hear your take on the historical aspects. :) Dickons, I agree, this is a good setting to share that we are an adoptive family. Many in the group know, but it seems to be the newer gals I don't know well who are starting the book club. And absolutely the "little...
Single Dad adopting in Florida - need advice
September 19, 2014, 8:54 am
I decided to be proactive and called the New York state DCF group that handles the clearance I needed. And even though I asked the group in Florida to send the request overnight (and offered to pay for it to go over night) they sent it regular mail, the person in NY on thursday 9/18 confirmed...
Is it necessary to meet the agency in person?
September 19, 2014, 4:24 am
We went to our primary agency's closest location twice, for an info session and then orientation. We stopped in to other offices two or three times when we happened to be nearby, to meet staff we'd been working with in person, but that was long after we signed up. With our home study agency,...
Toddler adoptions do happen in domestic agency! We are proof!

Must be a state thing. We adopted our son at nearly six months old, and it was definitely still considered an infant adoption. Congratulations!!!!

You know what would be nice? If instead of worrying about adding a bunch of new features, you'd fix all of the things that are now broken on these forums. Really, really agree with this. If history is any indication, rolling out new stuff, just breaks more old stuff. Please fix what's...

Thanks for the encouragement! Both my DH and I have somewhat flexible jobs and he is a HUGE help with the kiddos. I feel like I am CRAZY for thinking about this again, but also feeling like it is the right thing to do :)
