Adoption

Postby SeaWolf » Sat Jan 22, 2005 6:06 pm

My wife and I are talking about adopting a our second child. She has had two misscarriages, and the last one was not pretty at all. Bad experience all the way around. But anyway, we are thinking about a adopting a foregien born baby, since we don't want mom or dad to change thier minds two years from now, which can happen if you go domestic. Has anyone adopted a child, or knows someone who has adopted? I'm looking for some advice, or suggestions? Thanks!

Sorry to hear about your troubles.
Can't give you any first-person advice, but this sight looks to be a good starting point.
Good luck and best wishes.

I don't know a whole lot about it. But, like you said, there is an advantage of knowing that the mother can't change her mind. On the downside, I've heard it tends to be much more expensive.

My work will pay up 10,000 + my wife's work will pay up to 3,000, and the IRS will tax deduct up to 10,000. Thats 23,000. ;-D

Of course I need to come up with the money first, and then I get the other money.

That's great to hear you're doing that.

That takes a huge step of faith and commitment.

Kudos!!

Sounds as if you and your wife have exceptional programs with your employers. ;-D
Only other advice I have is, take your time, do more research than you've ever done before, do whatever it takes (financially and otherwise), and then cherish the life you've been entrusted with.
Once again, best wishes.

Hmm well my family is a foster family, were probably all getting to old to actually adopt a kid so we take care of kids until they find a home for good. Ive seen just about every kind of kid, so if you have any kind of questions, shoot me a PM or something ;-D

My dentist has adopted two babies from China. The first one worked out great, but the second baby is a bit tougher on them. You really have to make sure they were raised in a sterile place with a good reputation. My dentist's second kid has gotten really sick a couple of times, and has had trouble walking because the foster home kept them in roller things which didn't give them the opportunity to use their legs much.

I really don't know much about it, but just make sure you research the place you'll be adopting from.

Good luck! ;-D
