Some other parents feel lonely after their children have grown up and left to study or work abroad or far away from their home. Such a family usually feels the need of having a child they can send and keep the home compound and house lively; that’s why they go for adoption.

Recently, there has been a kind of attack against Christian foster families who are planning to have foreign adoption. According to Jameson Taylor who works at Mississippi Center for Public Policy, most of the agencies that adopt children based on Christian faith are being discriminated and their efforts of being in operations especially in making foreign adoptions are frustrated. International adoption by Christian foster parents in the United States is being viewed as kind neo-colonial racism.
With this traumatic move by these bureaucracies, Christian must arise and defend their civil rights and consequently their liberty. Federal legislation is against the move and no discrimination should be allowed. There are so many orphaned and poor children globally who need assistance hence let international adoption not be trampled on.

Luminesce, by Jeunesse Global, continues as top-selling product

Jeunesse Global has become one of the top-selling brands in the global health and beauty industry as well as one of the fastest-growing direct-selling businesses in the world. This is a remarkable accomplishment for a company that started life just 9 years ago. Since its founding in 2009, Jeunesse Global has gone from a business that shared a headquarters with a lawn tractor in a Florida couple’s garage to ranking among the most important and innovative health and beauty companies today.

When founders Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis decided to start yet another company, they knew that they wanted to create something that would truly be different. The newly retired couple had quickly discovered that the endless boredom and lack of purpose that came with retirement was not for them. But Ray and Lewis had long been two of the most accomplished entrepreneurs in the global direct-selling business. They had enough money that they couldn’t spend it all in five lifetimes. Acquiring more wealth was not their objective.

Instead, Ray and Lewis sought to create a company that would help people around the world to meet their health, beauty and financial goals, no matter where on Earth they were. The couple viewed the creation of Jeunesse Global more as a magnum opus that would serve as a capstone to a life of entrepreneurial achievement. They wanted to create groundbreaking products that would establish Jeunesse as a top innovator and a major contributor to the development of science-based anti-aging products.

One result has been the company’s advanced moisturizing lotion. Known as Luminesce, the lotion is indeed capable of making skin radiate a certain youthful glow. As a moisturizer, Luminesce stands on its own. It is competitively priced and able to hold its own against any competition in any category of performance. But where Luminesce really shines is in its ability to suppress the outward signs of aging skin.

Made with the company’s patented APT-200 molecule, Luminesce is clinically proven to reduce wrinkles, prevent the formation of new ones and restore youthful skin elasticity that has been lost to age. Luminesce can make skin glow with youth.

Shelter Program Teaches Cats to High-Five to Raise Pet Adoption Rates

Cat Pawsitive is a program started by Jackson Galaxy, of “My Cat From Hell,” with the goal of training cats to perform tricks. The logic goes that a cat is more likely to be adopted if it can perform tricks like giving its potential owner a high-five. Multiple animal shelters have joined into the program. The program’s premise is simple, cats that can perform tricks on command are more likely to listen to, and bond with, their owners. Learning tricks is also a means of easing the stress that tends to flourish in cats within a shelter environment.

Cats that go through the shelter system can lose their sense of self and their confidence, potentially even withdrawing from others and becoming listless. A training regimen is a great way to keep cats confident, willing to greet others and even raise the likelihood that a potential owner makes a connection. With the impending event of National High Five Day, Galaxy is hosting a contest for shelters and cat owners. Participants need only record their cats doing a high five and apply the proper tags and hashtags.

Stephen Holdeman, manager of feline behavior and training for the KC Pet Project shelter, explains that training a cat to perform a trick is easier than some might think. All a trainer needs is a certain level of patience, a sense of timing and proper motivation. Holdeman went as far as to describe his preferred approach:
• Learn the cat’s favored foods.

• Use that food as a reward for performing the trick.

• Confirm that the cat performed properly by using a clicking device.
Holdeman gets his cats primed for training by getting them to associate the appearance of food with the clicker’s sound. Once the cat understands the relationship between the clicker and food, the trainer can reinforce a successful exercises. After several training cycles, the cat “gets it” and can perform the trick on command.

The Passions of Cassio Audi

Cassio Audi was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. While a young teenager he and several friends—Yves, Machado Andre, Pit, and Felipe—founded the Brazilian heavy metal rock band that would one day be known as Viper in the early 1980s. Audi and all of his co-founders were teenagers at this time, all 13 and 14-year-olds. Although it specialized in heavy metal, the band also dealt heavily in alternative rock and thrash metal. Audi was its drummer, leader, and one of its composers. Prior to officially becoming Viper, in 1985 the band released a very well received demo album called “The Killer Sword.”

It instantly became hugely popular and even got some airtime. The band was heavily influenced by the iconic British hard rock bands of the 70s but pioneered a unique sound all their own. This sound highly influenced many other hard rock bands at that time. Thus, a hard rock subgenre was born in 1980s Brazil. In 1985, not long after they released their now famous demo, they officially became The Viper Rock Music Band. After they officially became Viper, the band released their first album, “Soldiers of Sunrise,” in 1987.In 1989 they released their second official album, “Theatre of Fate.”

“Theatre of Fate” was also hugely popular and notable for having touches of classical music throughout. Both of these albums were incredibly popular all over the world, especially in Japan. They had so quickly risen in stardom after their initial demo, that throughout they had been performing before huge crowds all over the world. Most of their songs were sung in English, a very common second language in Brazil. In that same year, Audi left the band to pursue his college education. He has since attained international renown in the international finance community. Nevertheless, his biggest claim to fame is his years with Viper.

Bear Cub Loses Mother In Maine – Here’s How Adoption Helped Out

Not all parents willingly raise their children: some leave by choice, others pass away, or might get lost and split up from their kids. This holds true with animals of all shapes and sizes, just as well as it does with humans.

Recently, a group of Portland, Maine, wildlife experts working with the state felt obligated to temporarily adopt a lone bear cub in response to its mother being killed by a car crash in Caribou.

According to Alan Dudley, a Game Warden in Caribou, Maine, he was called in to locate the infant black bear after its full-sized mother had kicked the bucket. One Dudley arrived on the scene, he remarked that he could hear that cub from the road – Route 1 – so he decided to go check it out.

Despite the fact it was roughly 10:30 p.m., the Game Warden worked diligently to find the black-as-night bear. Alan Dudley found it just a few feet up a tree, meaning it wasn’t strong developed enough to travel any further up the tree, a natural thing for black bears to do when looking for food or climbing for fun.

With the help of professional wildlife biologists Randy Cross and Amanda DeMusz, Alan Dudley was able to help unite the black bear cub, recently made an orphan by no fault of its own.

Those two researchers drove for roughly three-quarters of an hour, then took a snowmobile for a few miles, then hiked yet another mile just to find a bear den. Fortunately, the duo did, in fact, successfully find a mother bear to take care of the baby.

While not all animals will take care of young that it didn’t give birth to, black bears are known for taking care of babies that they don’t even give birth to. The state of Maine wildlife biologists shared that as soon as those bears come out of their respective dens.

Couple Gets Pregnant After Trying For 10 Years And Adopting Children

A couple who adopted six children after struggling with infertility for 10 years. Christy and Sean Baker are both 40-years-old. They got married in 2004 and always wanted to have a large family. They began trying shortly after they got married.

Christy found out that she had polycystic ovarian syndrome, which is a condition that makes it hard for a woman to conceive naturally. They considered getting fertility treatments, but they decided to adopt instead. They adopted six children. Jacob and Alexia are both 16-years-old. Hunter is 15-years-old, Cassadie is 14-years-old, Michael is 13-years-old and Anna is 12-years-old. The four youngest children are siblings.

Christy and Sean thought that their family was complete after they adopted their sixth children. However, they received a surprise in 2013. Christy got pregnant unexpectedly. Kinsley is now four-years-old. Christy stated that Kinsley is a miracle and full of life. Christy and Sean now have the big family that they wanted.

The couple went to the doctor after they had unsuccessfully tried to get pregnant for one year. They weighed their options and ultimately decided that adoption was the route that they wanted to go. They were matched with Alexia and Jacob one year after they started the adoption process. They were later matched with the four siblings.

The couple is amazed that they were able to go from a family of two to a family of eight in just two years. After the couple adopted their children, they opted to try fertility treatments. The couple was shocked after they got pregnant after trying for nearly 10 years. They were surprised that the treatments actually worked.

Christy stated that she cried the first time that she found out that she was pregnant. She stated that their daughter is perfect.

What Do Adopted Children What You to Know?

Each adopted child has a different experience before adoption, and will have different experiences once they are adopted into a family. However, there are a few things that adopted children want parents and society to know that can improve the way that people understand and perceive adoption. These factors can also help adoptive parents to care for their children effectively.

Foster children want people to know that they are children who are just as worthy of love as any other children. Adopted children have a natural need for family just like anyone else, and should be treated with the same care and attention as the adoptive family’s biological children.

It’s also important to know that each adopted child feels differently about his/her adoption. Some are too young to remember their birth parents, while others are adopted when they are older, which means it could take them a while to warm up to their adoptive family members. Some foster kids will want to know more about their birth families, while others are fine with not getting more information. Adoptive parents should know that some children will be extremely grateful for being adopted, while others may not, or may not express their gratitude until much later in life.

Adopted children also want their new families and society to know that adoption is not something to be ashamed of. Foster children want to know that they are accepted, and keeping the adoption a secret won’t accomplish this. Foster children don’t want to be viewed as “less than” in society or in their families, so talking openly about the adoption will help to make adopted children feel that they are worthy of love.

NJ Mom Fights For Son That She Gave Up For Adoption

Gloria Roman is fighting to get her son back from his adoptive parents. She was 19 at the time and a freshman in college. Gloria and her mother had lost their home, and she had to move into her sister’s attic. She knew her finances were tight and did not know if she could take care of a baby.

Because Gloria’s finances were so tight, she thought that adoption would be the best option. She did not think that she would be able to give her baby a good life. Gloria contacted an adoption agency before she gave birth. She was not told about all of the options that she had. She was also told that foster care was not available.

Gloria had her son in July 2017. She was able to hold her son one time before giving him to the adoption agency. She stated that giving her son up for adoption was one of the worst mistakes of her life. Gloria said that the only reason she gave her son up for adoption because she was misinformed.

Gloria reached out to the adoption agency one month after her son was born. She told them that she had changed her mind, but she was told that it was too late. Gloria hired an attorney and filed a lawsuit against the new parents and the adoption agency. The judge ruled in Gloria’s favor. The judge stated that the adoption documents were not valid.

The judge told the new parents that they had to return the baby boy to Gloria. However, they filed an appeal. Gloria stated that she is willing to do whatever it takes to get her son back.

Gloria will have to pay $80,000 for legal fees. Her attorney has informed that there is a possibility that she may have to pay an additional $50,000. She is taking time off from school to focus on raising the attorney fees.

Gloria has started a gofundme campaign. The goal is to raise $90,000. She has already raised $5,000.
