A: Cindy: DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT A LAWYER or ATTORNEY. I am someone who has experience in family law issues, and am sharing my OPINION only.

Q: 

Where can pregnant women get adoption information?

A: Dear Reader, As you`ve found through your research about adoption options, it`s often suggested to speak with a health care professional. Pregnant women can talk with an OB/GYN, nurse practitioner, or other health care provider. Other women such as your friend who doesn`t have an established relationship with a health care provider can contact the following resources, including Planned Parenthood, which does have adoption-related information: Planned Parenthood or other Family Planning Clinics Aside from offering birth control information and pregnancy testing, Planned Parenthood and other clinics typically discuss pregnancy options and offer information concerning places that can work with a pregnant woman if she decides to place her...


Q: 

What are the pros and cons of adopting (as opposed to birthing) a child?

A: the blessings of children are immense, whether by birth or adoption. The awesome sensation of life moving within is profound. So is the discomfort of getting that life out! I''ve mulled over the same questions GoS. I actually also have always wanted a little girl, and have thought about adopting just for that reason. Of course it''s all very far in the future for me as well. But honestly, when I see it written out like that, when I''m very honest most of the reasons you listed in favor of adoption seem very superficial. stretch marks? Come on, that is a very small price to pay. I would add to your pro-adoption list: -The joy of knowing you''re giving a child a gift, giving her a loving home, etc. -The environmental...


Q: 

adoption

A: I know a few people who adopted and they had some hardships along the way and had to do some serious soul searching. Firstly you need to think about the colour of the baby ie does it matter if you are Asian and the baby is African, what are the waiting times for babies in Australia or whatever country you are looking at. What requirements do you need to have and what do you have to do throughout the whole process. Are you looking for open or closed adoption? I would suggest you contact Welfare in your state and talk with them about the process and contact an adoption agency to ask them questions about that side. The people I know adopted their children from Korea and had to spend vast amounts of money to get them here, one couple actually...


Q: 

If You''re Adopted, How Do You Get Your Family Medical History?

A: The only way you will be able to get your family medical history if you were adopted is if this was an open adoption. If it wasn''t then you would not have access to this information. You can try calling the adoption agency but there''s a good chance they won''t give it to you. As long as you get a full workup with your doctor, I wouldn''t be too concerned. You won''t always inherit what your family has. Stay on top of your health care and you will live a healthy life....

Q: 

In adoption should race be an issue?

A: I live in Michigan and am currently in the process of trying to find the right agency to assist me in the adoption of a little girl 4-8 years old from the foster care system. I consider myself white (because I look white mostly but I''m technically 1/4 Ojibwa & 1/4 Cheyenne Native American) but 65% of the available children in foster care are African American. Race is not an issue to me, my family, my friends, my church, or anyone I have daily contact with really. I live in the county between two cities (Flint & Saginaw). I have found a nice Private Christian School in one of them that has a large multi-ethnic population (about 40% african american, 50% white, 8% hispanic, and 2% other) so my child could go to school with people who look like her instead of being...


Q: 

adoption process

A: The adoption order is made in court and the adoptive parents take full legal responsibility throughout the child''s life. An adopted child legally takes the surname of his or her new family and gains the same rights as any birth child of the adopters. Just sign over gaurdianship to her. Is she going to pay for your medical expenses? Good for you for making such a great decision for the good of your baby! Make sure that both you and your friend''s aunt have attorneys involved. you will need an attorney so that everything is legal for both you her and the baby many good intending people have mistakenly done things without an attorney and nothing legal it is important that this woman is legally your baby''s mom i would get a attorney so that everything is legal and...


Q: 

Adopting my boyfriend"s son

A: Vanessa,  I"m not 100% sure on the rules of adopting children. I do have a little bit of knowledge I will share with you. Normally you would have to try to get the parent"s consent to adopt. Being that her rights are terminated, you MAY or MAY NOT have to get her permission first. This in itself can be a long process if your not sure where she is, but there"s things you do (post ads in the newspaper, etc), and if all else fails, the courts deem her to have abandoned the child. With her rights being terminated you may be able to skip that whole part of the process.  On to the next part. I"m not even quite sure where to go with the next part. Your local child protective services would probably be able to tell you what you would file with the local court, as could the court...
