Hi everyone, I'm 31 years old and am going back to school for my teaching degree and to become certified to teach special ed. Once I'm working and have a home, I want to adopt (siblings, if possible). I've wanted to do this for a long time. Right now I'm single and not looking for a relationship, necessarily.
When I was younger, in my early to mid 20s, I started having unpaid medical bills from the hospital that I went to a few times during those years. I was a student during that time and just couldn't pay. It ruined my credit. Since then I had to have a co-signer when I got an apartment. It seems like it's followed me even though I haven't racked up anything new. I've paid anything I've owed since those times. Even when I applied for a job a couple of years ago, they ran a credit check. I didn't get the job and I don't know if it had to do with that or not.
Anyway, I'm hoping this won't interfere with my plans to adopt?
