Foster Families Needed In Indiana

There is a growing need for foster parents in Indiana. Many children have been taken from their homes and put in foster care because of the growing substance abuse problem in the state. Department of Child Services has already completed 1,800 adoptions this year. Three years ago, only 1,000 children in Indiana were adopted.

 

Mary Beth Bonaventura is the Director of the Department of Social Services in Indiana. She stated that there is a great need for foster homes. This is the most children that DCS in Indiana has had in custody at one time. There are currently 23,000 children in foster care in the state.

 

In many cases, the children stay with their extended family until they are adopted. Children are sometimes able to be reunited with their biological parents. However, this can be a difficult process. It can also be a long process. It is especially important for older children to be in a good home.

 

Some children who grow in foster care end up struggling with addiction or go to jail. However, many of them are able to become successful adults because they get put with a good family. Mary has a personal story of a child who grew up in foster care. There was a boy who was struggling and fighting with everyone. His life changed for the better after he was placed with the right family.

 

He graduated from high school with honors. DCS has a program called the Indiana Heart Gallery. This program promotes adoption by sharing photos and success stories of children who have been adopted. This program was created by the Indiana Department of Child Services in 2007.

6,000 Children In Texas Need A Home

There were 5,000 children adopted in the state of Texas last year. Even though there were a lot of children adopted, there are still a lot of children waiting for a home. According to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Families, there are 6,000 children in Texas who are waiting to be adopted. The average age of a child adopted in the state of Texas is 5.

 

Teenagers and older children often stay in the foster care until they reach 18. Many people prefer to adopt younger children because they believe that older children are unadoptable. However, it is important for teens to have a stable household in order to grow into a productive adult.

 

There will be events held throughout the country this month in order to raise awareness about adoption. People will also be educated about the adoption process. How do children cope with foster care until they are adopted? What options do potential parents have in Texas? What requirements must be met in order for one to adopt in Texas? Those are some of the questions that will be answered at various events.

 

Jeremy Spencer, who is a police officer in San Antonio, will be speaking at one of the adoption events in Texas. He is the parent of two adopted children. Tim Gebel is a program administrator who works for the Texas Department of Families and Protective Services Region 8. He will also be speaking at one of the adoption events in Texas.

 

Anais Biera is the chief public relations officer for the Children’s Shelter-San Antonio. He is another one of the people who will be speaking at an adoption event.

New York Times Discusses Open Adoption

With open adoption being a fairly new legal process that many prospective adoptive parents have many questions about, the New York Times recently decided to publish an article discussing the implications and possible impact of an open adoption. By using one family participating in an open adoption as a case study, Ryan Smith discussed the benefits, drawbacks, and potential concerns of open adoption to help families struggling with the decision. According to Smith, thousands of children and adoptive parents are involved in open adoptions ever year in the United States. Many of the parents keep in touch with the adoption agencies during the process and often openly discuss their experiences with open adoption.

Smith used the Cadence family as an illustration for open adoptions in his article. Shandra and Bill Cadence reside in the suburbs of New York City and have adopted three siblings from the same family in an open adoption process. When discussing the open adoption process with Smith, the Cadence family revealed their intentions to adopt only one child in this manner. After adopting the first child from a mother who was not suitable to raise children at the time, the Cadence family received information that the mother had become pregnant a second time. Not wanting the mother’s second child and their adopted child’s sibling to be abandoned or raised by anther family, the Cadence family chose to adopt the second and third child as a part of their family. The family’s open adoption process is both rewarding and difficult. The Cadences revealed that they enjoyed the aspect of open adoption that allowed their children to know and love their biological mother as an extended member of their family. The family is also frequently disappointed, however, at the mother’s inconsistent behavior. Her visits with her biological children are sometimes frequent, but are sometimes missing altogether. This inconsistency often upsets the adoptive children.

Ultimately, Smith reported that the Cadence family are pleased with the fact that the open adoption has allowed them to have a relationship with the biological mother that would not have been possible in a closed adoption.

Exposing the Stigmas and Adoption Myths

November holds a holiday that most don’t celebrate. National Adoption Day is an occasion set aside to remember all the families who were brought together by love not birth. Adoption can be a beautiful thing. Bringing a child into your home and loving them with your whole heart is something that many desire to do. Domestic adoptions are surrounded by myths and lies that make many prospective families look the other way. Natalie Brumfield, a mother of three adoptive kids, wants to set the record straight about adoption.

Many people feel that they can’t love an adopted child as much as they would a biological one. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. People need to have realistic expectations with adoption. Not every child is going to bond with a family, and that can be true of an adoptive or biological child. With adoption, there is a bit more choice. However, the love between a child and their caretaker can happen very quickly. The nurturing and attending to that child and helping them heal their wounds can bring about an incredible bond.

The second myth that most people talk about is that it’s easier to abort the baby rather than giving it up for adoption. Many people are against abortion because it’s taking the life of a child. Adoption gives a child the chance to live. Birth mothers can select the family that adopts their child in some cases. Not every store is about child and family services coming in and taking the child and taking away the mother’s rights. In many instances, the mother has a choice.

Lastly, people feel that adoption is too expensive. If you are considering international adoption, it can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $100,000. However, adopting through a local state agency is much different. They will pay for all the home studies, physicals, and any other necessary paperwork to get the process through the courts. Many states will also pay the legal fees for an attorney during the process. In short, the total for a domestic adoption can be anywhere from $200-$8,000 with the state’s assistance.

As the country celebrates another National Adoption Day, those who are interested in adopting a child should realize that there are options available. Everyone wants a baby these days, but even with state assisted cases, getting a newborn is still a possibility.

Man’s Dying Wish Is To Find His Adopted Siblings

Mabel Mae Koons made one of the most difficult decisions of her life in 1947. She was the mother of five children and dying of heart failure. She did not think her husband could care for the children. She sent her two youngest children to live with someone else. The three eldest children soon ended up in foster care.

Donald Koons was sent to live in an orphanage in Pennsylvania. His home was not the best. The family was poor and kept animals in the house. Donald decided to leave the home when he was 15. He worked where he could. One day while he was working, he ran into his brother George.

Donald and George stayed in touch. Daniel knew where his oldest sister Mary was. However, he had no idea where his other siblings were. Daniel, George and Mary went to visit their father right before he died, but the other two siblings were not there.

Donald asked where Patsy and Wayne were. His father told him not to worry about his brother and sister. He also apologized for breaking the family up. He stated that he sent the children away because he did not want to raise five children on his own.

Donald’s father, Owen, passed away in 1980. He never found out where his youngest two children were. Donald is married and has six children of his own. In 2014, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He is now in stage four, and his days are numbered. He hopes and prays that he can meet his two youngest siblings before he passes away. If he cannot find his siblings, then he is hoping that he can meet their children and grandchildren.

More Single Men Adopting Children

The vast majority of people who adopt children are married couples. However, more single men are opting to adopt children. Steven Arauz, who is a teacher in Florida, decided to adopt a child as a single man.

Steven adopted a 10-year-old boy named Quinton. Steven first met Quinton when he was a student in his class. Quinton was a troubled child. He had been in foster care since he was five-years-old. He was also overweight and suffered from anxiety. He also detested physical and emotional affection because he had no idea what love was.

Things were rocky when Steven first brought Quinton to his home. He did not do well in school and was destroying the apartment. Steven wanted to give up. He contacted the foster care agency and told them that he did not know if he could do it.

However, Quinton eventually got on the right track. He received counseling and his grades improves. Steven also put Quinton on a vegetarian diet, which helped him lose weight. Quinton told Steven that he loved him after three months.

Quinton’s parents had lost their rights, and Quinton was now available for adoption. However, Steven was not sure he could be a full-time parent. He was only 27 at the time and unmarried. Steven’s counselor pointed out that he would make a great parent because Quinton had made amazing progress in just a few months.

Steven officially adopted Quinton in 2016. Kathy Ledesma is the national project director of AdoptUSKids. She stated that bias in the child welfare system is one of the things that keeps single men from adopting. Many people believe that children need a mother more than they need a father. However, she stated that gender, national origin or ethnicity does not determine whether one will make a good parent.

Dumping Apple And Facebook Stock Then $18 Billion Cash

Dumping Apple And Facebook Stock

The last time George Soros made a huge impact in the financial markets, he bought gold. Today, he sells full shares of some of the largest businesses around. It’s no surprise that George Soros would have and own stock in Apple or Facebook. Facebook is a billion dollar brand that’s made others rich, and learn more about George Soros.

Apple is an electronics and computer manufacturer who continues to set the stage for its market and innovates the technology standards we live by. Each company offers a great deal to investors. Yet as time winds down and the philanthropic work of George Soros comes to an end, money will be needed.

 

This money is what George Soros is investing in other places.

Our recent headlines of $18 billion donated to the Open Society Foundations was an act of George Soros that follows a clear trend. The chips on are the table, and the major work of George is coming to an end.

 

No One Can Ever Tell The Mind Of George

It’s difficult to truly predict where George’s actions stem from.

There’s likely financial data he has that hasn’t been released. It’s likely that no one else has this data. George Soros was seen as brilliant his entire financial career. He’s known for making financial moves that no one gets at first. The results, however, are more billions to his name, family and legacy, and George Soros’s lacrosse camp.

 

Big Moves In Recent Weeks

Part of the trending behavior we see with the trades of George Soros begins with a huge announcement that George lost tremendous wealth because of President Donald Trump, and that George then invested largely in gold. The purchase of gold is used as protection in the financial world.

That large stake in gold, by George Soros, offers him protection as he donates $18 billion to the Open Society Foundations. This large donation amounted to what was roughly 80 percent of George’s personal wealth. The actions, along with dumping Facebook and Apple stock, reveal a great deal.

 

Why The Numbers Actually Matter

There’s a big position being taken by George Soros, and no one will know until he’s made money from it. The financial taxes of the richest in America are tracked but are only required by law when profits are made. Until we see the financial results he earns, we’ll never know the entire plan of Mr. Soros.

Adoptive Parent Discusses Journey With Fertilization Treatments

In an article which was recently published by the BBC News Outlet, an adoptive parent discussed her lengthy journey through infertility, depression, hope, in vitro fertilization treatments, and the adoption process. The article was published as a part of the BBC’s effort to highlight adoption as a worthy choice for American families. In 2017, it was revealed that more than 200,000 children were waiting, during any given year, to be adopted by loving and supportive parents. The combination of declining birth rates, a higher age of adulthood among Americans, and a higher projected income among the current generation of young adults has made adoption a more likely option for families that it has been in half a century. Because of these combined factors, several families who have adopted children within the last decade or so have been asked to discuss the factors that led them to adoption and the adoption process.

Sophie S. of Philedelphia and her husband Johney had longed for a child since they wed in the early 2000s, but like many American families, they felt it best to become settled in their careers before introducing children to their tiny family. After spending years building carers and enjoying the married life without children, the couple finally decided that the time was right to introduce children into their home. After trying for two years, however, Sophie realized that there was a problem with the natural process between the the two of them. The couple sought out a professional opinion and quickly leaned that in vitro fertilization would be one of the only ways that they could achieve a viable pregnancy. The couple’s hopes of creating a family were dashed with this new realization. After all, they were an average American family who had not saved the funds to pay for the expensive in vitro fertilization process.

After struggling through depression as a couple and later resolving to personally fund the in vitro process, the couple attempted six treatments before choosing to adopt. Sophie and Johney are now the proud parents of a 5 year old adopted daughter.

New York Times Discusses Adoption Movement in New York City

In a recent adoption article published by the New York Times, an adoptive parent discussed the nature of what he called “adoption culture” and its impact on the lives of adopted children. In the article, the adoptive father suggested that the adoption of unwanted children was not as beneficial to the adoptive children as “white, privileged” parents assumed it was. He also suggested that those interested in adoption should seek to implement political structures that would support mothers who wanted to keep their unborn children alive but were underprivileged and were looking into adoption.

This parent’s response to American citizens who desired to adopt children was recently highlighted as a way the country’s politically correct ideology impacts otherwise logical and compassionate world systems. Not a decade ago, most Americans understood the fact that adoption was a necessary and beneficial act of love toward children who have already been given away by their biological parents. The act of adoption generally shows love and support, not only for the adopted children, but for families who felt unprepared to raise a child or end his or her life unjustly. One author pointed out that this article reflects the impact of the social justice warrior thought process on basic compassionate functions. Instead of praising families who wished to care for children who are not their own, this adoptive parent wrote an article condemning those families for exercising their privileged by daring to believe that the circumstances of the adoptive home would be better than the circumstances of the child’s previous home.

The author discussing this article pointed out that adoptive parents should actually review the facts of their potential child’s circumstance before rushing to make decisions using only feelings, as this article’s contributor did. According to adoption statistics, most children who are adopted in the United States do, in fact, leave a home that is inferior in income, education levels, and social environment, to the home of their adoptive parents.
