New to the Board?, stop by say Hi!

Too funny Beachy. Not adoption related but I remember when my niece was born. I immediately fell in love and she was the most incredible child ever born. 2 1/2 years later my sister was pregnant again. I remember thinking to myself there was no way another child could be as smart or beautiful but...

I would think they would.. Not sure why not if it is an adoption home study and the kids are legally free to adopt, not just foster.

I confess that after receiving a bunch of PMs I no longer want to leave. I confess that I think new members should stick it out because there are many great members. I confess that I now know who to avoid on this board.
Adopt Us Kids

I believe all of the kiddo's on that page are available through DFS. It doesn't necessarily have to be foster to adopt. You can register with the state as an adoption only home. You don't have to be a "foster parent". Good luck either way. I love looking at the sweet faces on that site....

Harder to adopt second time?
August 19, 2014, 12:23 am
Well, for us it was, but we specified gender (female) and race (all or part "African American"). Anecdotally, it does seem to take longer the second time around, but I'm not sure that's true. :hippie:
Letting go

" I think she lashes out without thinking and doesn't know what to do afterwards. She was one mean 5 year old when I met her and that hasn't changed" This sounds just like my daughter. It took some swallowing of my pride, but if I didn't teach her what to do afterwards, no one would. She's...

Step parent adoption forms
August 18, 2014, 5:01 pm
I paid for some forms like these and I feel dumb in the sense where it says my husband and I are the petitioner...my question though is, who really is the petitioner and who signs all the affidavits.... I have the affidavit for the interstate adoption, addresses the kids have lived and what...
Latest update on my situation
August 18, 2014, 7:55 am
Thanks for the kind words. I have had little contact with my daughter over the past thirteen years and now to have her son living here with his dad and being able to see him now and then is an unexpected turn of events. Life is mysteriously wonderful if you look for the positives.
Stepparent Adoption forms For Georgia.

That's because the person who started this thread did so in 2005 and hasn't been on the forum since 2005. Kuhelski - you will need consent from the birth father. If you are trying to do step parent adoption, just get an attorney. It's not that expensive compared to the rest of adoption. ...
Wait or move on? (failed adoption of sorts)
August 17, 2014, 1:06 am
Just wondering—has anyone ever had the mom every change her mind after a failed adoption and decide to place her baby after all? We’re not holding onto that hope, but it has entered our minds.Yes, there have been several members here over the years who ended up adopting the babies they were...

If a birth mother chooses us but is working with an agency already that we are not apart of, how does that work and how expensive (ballpark) will it be?
