I'm a 36 year old mother of three looking to place an unborn child for adoption. I am hoping to find a young couple who already has a child and is looking for a sibling of either sex. The baby's father is my boyfriend of many years (and father to my other children) and is completely on board. We would like to find a couple looking for an open or semi-open adoption situation with limited contact after the child is born. I am open to working with an attorney or agency.

Goodbye

After feeling better for about a week, I had a horrible day yesterday. Late last night I woke up to go to the bathroom and there was tons of bright red blood. I was having heavy cramping (what woke me up), so I went into the ER. They did an ultrasound and saw two babies, measuring about 7w4d but neither had heartbeats. I would have been over nine weeks pregnant,so their passing was inevitable I guess. I am feeling sort of at peace but still sad. Very strange to feel this…

The second step seems even more daunting than the first (ramblings)

I spent the last few days really digging through the emails from interested couples. I whittled it down from 80 or so (yikes!) to 40 to 20 to 10 to 5. By time I hit five, I was overwhelmed! I took a day off, and started again the next day just concentrating on the first impressions I had of the five families that were left. I finally left it up to mother's intuition. Oddly, the couple I felt most connected to was NOT who I thought they would be. There was just something about them that…

Am I chat disabled?

I see the little boxes lit up. I have come to understand that means someone else that is online is beckoning me to chat with them. I click the little box, their name and message pops up, but there is no place for me to type a response. So, I just shut it down. So, am I completely missing something or is it the chat function itself that is having issues? I am usually pretty savvy about these things but this has me stumped.

Why is finding a couple "my thing" and not "our thing"? (VENT)

I love my partner (birthfather) very, very much but I am really frustrated and hurt. Last night while we were discussing couples interested in adopting this baby, he told me that he didn't want to have any involvement with the couple chosen. He will make himself available if there are questions only he can answer or if they want some sort of confirmation that he is onboard totally with placing this child. But other than that, he says, "This is your…

Hi Jenni,
I'm with you, sometimes meat just doesn't smell appetizing...Although my husband would definitely disagree with that statement! He'd eat meat and potatoes for every meal if I'd let him.

Sorry to hear about the veggie diet. You are a stronger woman than me!

watch too many carbs though or you'll get a HUGE baby. Ouch for you.

Hi Jenni, just wanted to send you some support! You have every right to choose the family you want based on the things that are important to you. I'm sorry for you that others haven't been very polite. I read a post about this on another site some time ago and it really hit home. We don't meet your criteria but I know that you will find a lot of wonderful families here on AV! Welcome!
