Not me yet. I am a surrogate mom right now (still waiting to do another transfer) and I want to have another biological, but after that, we are adopting. Are both of your girls adopted/fostered?

My older dd Celste is bio (in my avatar) but my baby dd is fostered-to-adopt. We are pre adoptive only so we knew from day one she was ours.
Since she joined our family I have just be SO pro adoption! I hope to be able to adopt one or two more at least

Re: Any mommas by adoption or foster mommas out there?

we are just starting to think about it but hitting a few road blocks. any advice? books to read? we want a large family but my babies being so large it starts to become risky. wewill definatly have more biological children but would also like to adopt as well. strangly enough that is one of our road blocks, the fact that we can and plan to have more biological kids. private adoption seems to be the route that would overlook that problem. trouble is we now have to find a birthmother privatly. so if any one has advice i am definately listening

Re: Any mommas by adoption or foster mommas out there?

Me...kinda. I'm on the other end. I placed my son for adoption over 3 years ago. I just lurk on DS from time to time when its slow at work, but if you all have any questions for a birthmom, JLMK. You can either PM me and I can post here or share privately, I just dont check here that often...hopefully that will change soon though .

I'm very open about discussing it

I think that is SO awsome that your open to talk about your adoption experience! Adoption has changed our lives and I have so much respect for birth moms

Re: Any mommas by adoption or foster mommas out there?

we are foster adopt parents
Jason,Avy and Hayden are adopted and Christain and Alissa are long term foster care. We would love one more to round us out with 6 kids.
A few weeks ago we were the proud parents of 10 kids for 3 loooooong weeks. 10 kids under the age of 8 was alot of work but now I kinda miss them

We are pre adoptive foster parents. We were SO lucky with Amira, we got to bring her home from the hospital when she was just three days old! We have her termination court date next month and then we start our adoption contract. I am so excited! I just adore that little peanut

We also hope for more than just our current two... I admire you for wanting 6!

Re: Any mommas by adoption or foster mommas out there?

We get most of our babies from the hospital at birth (drug) All our adopted kids are special needs. We have had 26 kids in the 13 yrs we have done foster care.
I'm dying for a new baby right now we had a newborn this winter and it's so weird not to have a baby.
