What is the ‘adoption community’??

Question by Possum: What is the ‘adoption community’??
I am an adoptee.
I have lived adoption my entire life.
I am in communication with many on all sides of adoption – on a frequent basis.

Am I not part of the ‘adoption community’ – or are adoptees that are vocal and hope for best parenting practices for all adoptees – excluded from this secret club???

And is all research which implies that their are issues within current adoption practices considered void and null – because they perhaps don’t fit in with the adoption agency line??

Just curious really.

Thanks.

Oh sweetie, you don’t want to be a part of that club. I tried to get in once, but then I realized that the ONLY people in that club are those who feel the need to make themselves sound important and knowledgeable because they’ve spent significant amounts of time talking to others who have purchased children in order to meet their own wants.

ETA: You know what comes to mind when I hear the phrase “adoption community”? The Men’s Club in the Stepford Wives (note: I’ve only read the book, so I don’t know what the movie is like…hope everyone knows what I’m talking about).

Pregnancy and human rights laws?

Question by carold913: Pregnancy and human rights laws?
If you were pregnant and went to the Hospital to deliver your baby and the hospital went behind your back to get control of your newborn baby, because they believed you are homeless and have no family or friends. Soon as you give birth to your healthy baby, the FL.,HRS Dept steps in and takes your newborn. The 2nd Circuit Judge says “you will never see your baby unless you put her up for adoption and he put you in jail to force you to give your baby up for adoption.” When your released from jail, the Judge and HRS threaten to harm you baby if you do not going alone with what they say and sign the adoption papers. what would you do if this happen to you? any and all suggestions are welcome.
This events is happening in America not only to this women but to Numerous Minority Women. Florida’s Health and Rehabilitation Service, now called, Dept of Children and Family Service is stealing newborn babies from their parents. This women was not on drugs, had no crimmial records, had no health or psychogical problems. She is a college graduate and was single at the time of the birth. HRS gave no reason as to why they stole this women’s baby. Tallahassee Memorial Hospital is where this event occured. The Judge at the Second District Court who is involved has warned all attorneys against representing the Women. i hear it is very hard to get a lawyer for this type of Dependency case. if a judge is involved in the kidnapping of minority babies who would dare file a case against him. See the Movie “The Rabbit Proof Fence”. For a Idea as to the cause of this Constituational violation of Human Rights in America.

Q&A: The Question — How much does adoption cost?

Question by pinky_boo7: The Question — How much does adoption cost?
Ok I asked the question the other day and the responses were a little weird.

Many of you say it’s all about me, or

as a user (tish_part deux) said “and people wonder why some of us have critical beliefs about adoption practices..”

Sounds a little weird to me, I love children and want to take a child in from my heart. Love them, care for them, give them the life with a family they aren’t having right now. Why is that a practice?

Just because she doesn’t have the time or need to adopt doesn’t make us all like that, some of us actual want to make a difference in a childs life.

What is wrong is that question? Seriously are that many people air headed to be just rude? Because I believe that this subject “adoption” is where many of us have questions, I’m sure many here have adopted their childrens and they know the answr to my question.

I will admit, I know nothing about it! This is something we’ve been talking about but I’ve always known that I wanted to do. Why is that wrong?

I think it’s heartless and rude that people have such a big deal with questions about adoption.

Also to those who are all dramatic about WHY ADOPT JUST FOSTER!…yes Fostering a child is something we want to do to, but is my question how much does it cost to adopt a child, rule the fostering part out? I dont think so, so why judge so quickly user Mom to Foster Children.

Anyways just wanted to let that out! God bless and I hope everybody who opens their heart to Adoption and Fostering treats the child the way they deserve to be treated. If you don’t want a child to love them and care for them then don’t bother.

Answer by bash
They were probably referring to the Foster Care adoption program.
There is ‘fostering’ and there is ‘adoption through foster care’. I am a foster-to-adopt mommy, but you don’t have to do any fostering if you choose not to do so.
Adoption through foster care is free. There are children of all races, ages, and sex. You can choose what type/age/sex/race child would best fit into your family. At the most, you will have to pay for legal fees to adopt, which run from 800-1800 bucks. Many states cover those fees as well. You can contact Child Protective Services or DSS to learn more about adoption.
