I'm glad your mother gave you that name. It fits you just right.

The post MELISSA was Re: Melissa. I just accidentally put her name in that space. She has actually emailed me and I am helping her through adoption. Thanks for your concern.

What on earth made you come to a teenage forum to ask for information on adoption.

 

becca - February 17

this is not the place so go through the right places i am getting annoyed with you people coming on here expecting us to even give you a look in i no this is being rude but p__s off!!!

Adoption has to do with pregnancy. If someone is looking for support and they ask I will offer answers. Adoptive parents have as much right to be here as anyone else.

Becca, I'm not so sure I understand your anger. I'm not asking for your child or anyone elses child in here. I am asking for simple information. Try to shill in the anger area. Faye, human error for posting in the wrong forum. I actually did a google search that brought me here.

cheryl y do adoprive parents have just as much right may i ask this is for teens who have querries on being pregnant and mother hood???

 

Cheryl - February 17

Sometimes teens may need advice from someone older and wiser rather than another teen who hasn't had as much experience with different situations. Especially when some teens only offer insults rather than support.

Older & Wiser - February 17

Never a truer word said, however I have never once seen you giving advice you just pa__s out your e-mail address like it's a business card, I'm sorry but Melissa you posted your question on a teenage pregnancy forum That's wrong because it's people like you who are encouraging these people. If you were foolish enough to get tangled in with a person you do not know then you deserve everything you get. And Cheryl's hard work will have paid off too, for such a supposedly busy person she can sure spend A LOT of time on the internet seeking out babies, Oh and while all this is going on how much attention is she actually paying her current family?

 

RE: older and wiser - February 17

I happen to be on my down time right now. Considering I do my own booking I get to choose when I work. Usually I start my shows in March but this year I am going to wait until April. Not that it's any your buisness. As far as my family life it's absolutely wonderful. And my family joins me for shows and dinner and performs with me some. Not that it is any of your buisness either. As I have stated before when I post advice I use another name because I get enough criticism from people like you who think you know everything about everyone in every matter. Personally you seem to be obsessed with my presence on this forum. It's kind of like being stalked. You follow me around and post negative things about me yet you don't even know me. It's kind of scary.

If you don't want to spen even $5000 then you may wand to look into the fost adopt program with the state. There are agencies that will take a % of your income, instead of a large amount like $40,000. You will have to get a home study, thats around $1500 and you will need to hire an attorney. You can place ads, if you want to find a situation on your own but that can be expensive too. There really is no price on love though and it's worth it. If you just want to help someone, fost adopt with the state may be for you....or you can adopt an an older child. He I know all about adoption. I am always happy to talk to people. email me at [email protected] We adopted a baby with an agency and will probably do so again, unless we find a good situation on our own this year. Hey good luck to you!

I strongly advise... actually please do it.. I was a foster child, and got c___ppy homes. I know that Melissa, Julia and Cheryl would provide lovely homes, I really hope you ladies will look into it. I feel that maybe things would have turned out better for me if I had gotten better homes.

 

Jen - February 18

Hilary that is sad that you had to grow up in such bad homes. My husband and I were foster parents to a 13 and 7 year old, thet are now 18 and 12 and we still keep in touch...even with their family members and it was a positive exp for them to see a "normal" family. They will always be our family. We don't do foster care anymore but I know a lot of people must do it for the wrong reasons. How old are you Hilary? By the way, I also am looking to adopt...probably with an agency next year but if anyone is interested I will mention it from time to time. I am really on this board becasue I love reading the posts and enjoy it...but of course if I met a match here I would be thrilled...my email is [email protected]
