I am a single mom and I have a wonderful 5 year old son. I make good money where I work and I am permanent. I have worked there for 14 years. I have a 3 bedroom 2 bath house that will be mine in 2 years. I also have a paid off car.
I have been thinking about this for a year now. I really want to adopt a child. I live in a small town and there are a lot of children who's parents have had their parental rights terminated. A lot of them are the same race as me and I can sort of see myself in them. I know I could provide a stable home and a loving family for them but I'm a little scared.
I went to one of the hearings as advised by my lawyer to see the parents and I guess they knew why I was there and they started yelling profanity at me saying that they will find their kid and that I think I'm better than them. That kind of discouraged me but I know I still want to adopt somehow.
Has anyone adopted or thought about it? What would you do about the birth parents trying to some back into the child's lilfe?
