I have a 16 year old Godson and he has lived with me and my 3 kids since his mum (my best and longest friend) hung herself on his 13th birthday. Ceejay has a dad who loves him to bits but sadly he fell apart after losing Ceejays mum and so as a temporary measure Ceejay came to live with us. That temporary measure turned out to be permanent. I have legal guardianship of him (needed if ever he needed medical attention and the likes) and he sees his dad whenever he wants (usually on a payday haha). They have a great relationship even though Ceejay chose to carry on living with me.
COLUMBIA — Although the term “adoption” implies the belief that embryos are alive, embryos do not have the same legal status as the children of live births. Currently, no state has laws that address embryo adoption specifically, and it is not legally necessary for adoptive parents to go through a traditional adoption process.
Minister for Women and Family Affairs Nimet Çubukçu announced on Wednesday that Parliament is working to amend the civil code’s provisions regarding child adoption with the objective of facilitating the process for foreign parents.
A few years ago, I made contact with an adoptee through the internet. It was the first time I ever had written conversations with a person who spoke the same angst-ridden language I had when it came to being lost and not knowing if I'd ever be found. We were both searching for the truth in terms about our adoptions, our childhoods, and how that all affected our relationships as parents and our marriages. We wanted to find answers to fill the voids that became our life-stories, but didn't know if that was possible. It was only within a few emails we compared
Another good program... this one proving that not only can people change, but programs can. When this program was Families For Kids Partnership, they focused on finding permanent families for kids in foster care. Now, they are the Parent-Child Assistance Program, seeing to the real needs of at-risk families towards goals of keeping them together, reunification, or reunion, depending on what the case may be. Reunification is when a foster child returns to his mom or dad or both.
Today, one year ago, Pound Pup Legacy was born as the brain child of two adoptees from the sixties. Twelve months followed of building up the site, adding articles, having discussions, researching and making contacts around the world, finding and defining our place in the global realm of child placement.
Back when I was working for a certain lingerie company, I was toying with the idea of writing a book about the inside scoop of what really happened behind the pink walls of vanity. My co-workers loved the idea, because they knew the very stuff I would be addressing. They loved the idea of me ripping apart aspects of a world they hated. [Hey, who doesn't love a good ass-ripping from time-to-time?]
Over the past week an msn group members discussed a new site they wanted to set up. The member whose idea it was said it would be a board for people to say whatever they wanted to other people with no come back. All the replies showed great enthusiasm and suggestions of what they intended to do. They all expressed glee at the anonymous email address and the fact IP addresses would be impossible to trace. The site is now set up. How will anyone take the UK and its adoption issues serious when such a big group like Forgotten Mothers are the people behind such irresponsible behaviour.
