and I are thinking about adopting. I know NOTHING about this. I don't know how
much it costs, how long it takes (usually)to be chosen, what the rate of mother
repossesion can be, how it differs from state to state, What it takes to be
chosen, and how to find an adoptive agency. What are the benefits/ drawbacks of
domestic vs foreign? Open? Or Closed?
H also mentioned fostering a kid. I
am leary of this bc I know a couple of horror stories (totally F-ed up kids who
can never really get themselves together bc of their horror show early years),
but I know Amy (NJColony) did it and adopted her youngest son, so how did they
get selected as a foster family? What's required there?
Finally- IDK if
anyone here did this, but I thought about having a second child using a
surrogate. Anyone have any info on this? How to do this, find a surrogate, how
much is covered by insurance?
Finally- I am completely of the opinion
that love is love and family is family, but I am not sure (bc I just don't
know), if it's easy to fall in love with a baby or small child that I didn't
carry in my belly. How does that affect the bonding? How did it work for you?
Thanks for Any light and info that you can share. TIA!! G
