• (reincarnation) If a baby is aborted, is there a chance it will be reborn to the same mother?

    I had an abortion because I couldn't support another baby (I had 2 kids already). 3 years later I am pregnant with my 3rd and I'm wondering if it might be the same soul.

  • If a kidnapped child is adopted, can the original parents claim the child back?

    I ve got this wacked out teacher who has something against Law and Order. He s always finding reasons to complain about how unrealistic it is.

Well he s given us an assignment where we have to basically pick out an episode, find something in said episode and discuss what wrong with it and how it would really work. Most people are probably going to write about technique and what-not but I found an interesting topic and couldn t find anything on it. A baby is kidnapped and then put up for a closed adoption. The adoptive parents think the whole things legitimate and raise the boy til hes like 12. The real parents find out and in the end, they aren t able to get their kid back and instead get "visitation rights" I can t find anything on the subject. Anyone know where I could?

  • Could I sign away my rights after birth without the dad?

    So I don’t want to get into many details, but I’m pregnant and I never really wanted to be a mom. The baby’s dad has 5 other kids from 4 women apparently and he doesn’t want anything to do with me anymore. I’m currently 2 months pregnant and I’m looking into my options.

    So I don’t want to get into many details, but I’m pregnant and I never really wanted to be a mom. The baby’s dad has 5 other kids from 4 women apparently and he doesn’t want anything to do with me anymore. I’m currently 2 months pregnant and I’m looking into my options. I don’t have any family because I was in foster care and wasn’t ever adopted. I don’t know any biological family and I don’t have many friends. I’m alone in this and unfortunately I’m having to resort to advice from strangers on Yahoo Answers. So... my question is this: Could I sign away my rights after I give birth and place the baby for adoption without the dad being involved? He doesn’t know I’m pregnant and I don’t plan on telling him. I’m moving from Nevada to Minnesota next month. What if I tell them that I don’t know who the father is?

  • Giving baby up for adoption?

    I’m 18 and unprepared to be a mom. Not only that, but the baby will be biracial (half black/white) and my family would be really unaccepting. While I’d love to keep him/her (I don’t know if it’s a boy or girl yet) I don’t think I can. I lack the funds and family support to do so. :/ Where could I find an adoption... show more

What cultural elements played a role in the adoption process? Anything else I should know? Thank you!

  • Is it true that some adoptive parents abuse children?

    You see, my wife is pregnant. We can’t support a twin right now so we decided to give them for adoption. Then I came across a statistic that really scared me. It says 20/100 of adoptive children suffer abuse. I want my kids to have a good life not to be abused.

    Best answer: Yes and no.

    The child first needs to be "free and clear" for adoption and for that to happen the parents would either need to willingly give up their parental rights or the state would have to terminate them. Unless that happens, the child is not eligible to be adopted.

    The state doing it can take several years. When CPS is involved and the child goes into foster care, the goal in foster care is always reunification with the biological/legal parents. The state will give the parents a parenting plan to follow to help them get their children back. The state will also give them many chances to turn it around before they consider terminating their rights.

    In most situations an older sibling taking the children, long-term legal guardianship rather than adoption is usually a better option. The sibling like anyone else would need to prove they can provide for the children and have a safe home for them. If the sibling/relative wanted to be paid to care for them, they are required to become a licensed foster parent through the state.

    If the state terminated the parents parental rights, legally that ends all other relatives legal relationship with them as well, including an older sibling. However, if they have a bonded relationship with the child they'd be considered a "competing party" for adoption and would usually be given the first opportunity to adopt. Next would be the foster parent they were living with, then approve adoption home studies in the foster care system.
