• Is it true that it is still difficult for single men to adopt? And if so, is there a trick to get around it?

    This is really a two part question: 1. As the title says, is it true that men face discrimination in the system? 2. If the above answer is yes, and this is actually the main question I want to ask here, is there a way to get around this by, well, getting married? Yes, getting married.

    This is really a two part question: 1. As the title says, is it true that men face discrimination in the system? 2. If the above answer is yes, and this is actually the main question I want to ask here, is there a way to get around this by, well, getting married? Yes, getting married. That really is the trick. Or more specifically, the marriage itself would be the trick. Say I am a single man who works from home, and I am getting older and havent met the person I want to spend the rest of my life with yet. What I DO know is that I want to be a dad. And I want to have kids before I am too old to ever spend time with my grandkids. Thats what I've always wanted in life. Anyone who thinks men arent nurturing has never met me. But I digress. What if I simply found a woman to marry me as a business transaction? We go to the courthouse, get married. Then we go to an adoption agency and adopt as a married couple. After we are approved and take my new adopted child home, we file for an uncontested divorce, having signed a prenup. In exchange for being my lawfully wedded wife for a few months and helping me to adopt, I pay her $20,000 dollars, and I do not hold her accountable for child support and she never uses her visitation, that would all otherwise be a part of seperated legal guardians of a child, and we never see each other again. Could this work?

  • Would someone be considered a racist if they only wanted to adopt a child that is the same ethnicity that they are?

    Best answer: Nope. Many people choose to adopt a child that is similar to themselves. Nothing wrong or racist about it.

  • Heard there was a legally adopted girl who is confused about reading on a separate document being legitimate child of her adoptive parents?

    Best answer: I'm not sure what you see asking? The birth certificate I have shows my adoptive parents as my biological parents. It's an amended birth certificate issued after my adoption. My original birth certificate is sealed and I'm not allowed to see it based on the rules of the state where I was born and... show more
    Best answer: I'm not sure what you see asking?

    The birth certificate I have shows my adoptive parents as my biological parents. It's an amended birth certificate issued after my adoption. My original birth certificate is sealed and I'm not allowed to see it based on the rules of the state where I was born and adopted.

    If the filing date on a birth certificate is more than six months after the child's birth, it might be an amended birth certificate.

  • Should I tell my little brother he is not adopted?

    My little (half) brother is clearly not the bio-kid of our Mom and Dad. He is brown and sort of Asian. I recently found out he assumed he was the result of one of those an international adoptions. Actually, he's the result of an affair Mom had. Should I set him straight?

  • I’m adopted and i’m worried about high school orientation.?

    Best answer: Do you look way different than your parents? Either way, no one will care. It's High School, everyone is only worried about how THEY look.

    Best answer: Do you look way different than your parents?
    Either way, no one will care. It's High School, everyone is only worried about how THEY look. Everybody is freaking out about people seeing their super embarrassing parents, because teenagers MUST always be embarrassed by their parents. It's basically a law. They'll only be trying to keep their own parents under the radar, and trying to look cool. Most high schooler's actually wish they were adopted, didn't you know?
    And don't worry, even if they do notice, it's not a big deal to anyone else. I had an adopted friend in high school, nbd. Her parents didn't tell her until she was 10, which she kind of milked for sympathy, understandable, because that would be a big shock, so I thought that was not a great idea on their part, but other than that I never thought of them or her any differently. In fact, I always kind of felt like it was almost more special when someone was adopted, like they were more loved. It's harder to adopt than to just accidentally or on purpose get knocked up, so I felt like adoptive parents must love their kid so so much, and feel so blessed. My neighbor told me he was adopted when his parents thought they couldn't have kids, and after the adopted him, they got pregnant and ended up having like three more kids, but he is by far the favorite. He was their miracle. They felt like they'd never get a child, so when they adopted him, they were just so grateful. The other kids were just gravy. His whole family knows he's the favorite too.

    Just don't try to be secretive about it, because that would be weird, but it's really absolutely not embarrassing at all. It just makes you look more loved. You were so loved that someone went through all this stuff for YOU, and picked YOU. Also, it makes you more mysterious, which is cool.

  • Can I adopt a child at 18, and be single?

    Don't be rude or disrespectful. I am genuinely curious if I will be able to. I've looked at the adoption laws for New York but it says "Requires to be An Adult", legally I'm an adult. Yes, I know I'm young but it's something I've been very interested in doing since I was 14. So... show more
    Don't be rude or disrespectful. I am genuinely curious if I will be able to. I've looked at the adoption laws for New York but it says "Requires to be An Adult", legally I'm an adult. Yes, I know I'm young but it's something I've been very interested in doing since I was 14. So this isn't a rushed decision. I have a good paying job, an amazing apartment, money saved up. I'm financially stable, and I do want a child but I don't have a boyfriend or husband for that matter. So I'm considering adoption.
