I live in Virginia and just adopted my niece that has been with me since birth. The tpr and adoption went through in Circuit court. There was an old order in JDR court that terminated both bios visitation before the adoption. With contiguous on the adoption going through. It did go through but the bio dad has filed a motion to amend the visitation order. I filed a motion to dismiss before hearing date but judge will not. Is there any real chance that he could still get visitation rights? They have not been in her life for over 4 years. And has only had about a total of 4 month time frame that he even took the time to see her when she was 2. He has been in and out of prison and has loads of felony charges. He did not show for any hearing pertaining to the original visitation court hearing and none.of the tpr or adoption hearing. But now he wants to see her. Can this really happen?

Hi! Good day Ma'am/Sir! I am Kate Llensey Gumaha, I live in the Philippines. When I was 5, my parents separated and I am left here in my grandma's house. Both of my parents don't have a stable job and they barely support me. My grandma is already old and it saddens me thinking about it, my grandma and I talked about adoption and she supported me since we can't deny the fact that there's no one else to lean on. I must say that I am really eager to finish school, I really need a family who would love me and support me. I would do my best to be a good daughter just please let me have this kind of opportunity to have a mom and dad. I have been through many circumstances like being molested and victim of violence but I remained strong but I don't want to be in this kind of situation anymore, I need to have a new life, please do help me. I need a family, a real one. I've been longing for the feeling of having my own dad and mom, I promise to be a good daughter. I love you Mom and Dad or to whoever would be willing to adopt me just message me: llensey.salonga@gmail.com Thank You![img]https://adoption.com/community/PF.Base/file/attachment/2019/03/cfb9417f1c477e899b3e16f477625077_view.jpg[/img][img]https://adoption.com/community/PF.Base/file/attachment/2019/03/79ecb52fc5e025d4f42724ac365ab093_view.jpg[/img]

I traveled the country this past week, from coast to coast, to speak on behalf of people who are living the adoption and foster care experience. Sharing my own story, as an adoptee, and the wisdom I’ve learned along the way. It was a true honor to connect with so many amazing hearts. I was encouraged to see adoptees rising up to share their personal viewpoints and their journeys. This is critical! Without adoptee voices, this adoption and foster care community is not fully represented. I was equally encouraged to witness so many professionals, who work in the field of adoption and foster care, ready to listen and to hear the adoptee perspective. It struck me just how much they need adoptees to open up and bear light to what has, historically, been held in the dark. I recently heard from a woman, on social media, whose grandmother was an adoptee. She shared that her grandmother passed away with unresolved pain and unanswered questions, directly associated with her adoption. She added how healing it would have been for her grandmother to know that she wasn’t alone. It’s this very sentiment that fuels the work I do today. We’re not alone. Adoptees should never feel isolated. Yet, for years, far too many have. Today, adoptees are uniting and rising! I believe we’re at an exciting and transformational turning point.

[img]https://adoption.com/community/PF.Base/file/attachment/2019/02/5bc6eb991147e77d3e4a0ab39a53b08d_view.jpg[/img] Adoption is hard. It’s so very hard. And, it’s beautiful. Adoption is heartbreakingly beautiful. I understand the complexities of adoption. I’ve lived them. I live them. Adoption never leaves you. For the adoptee, it’s a journey that spans a lifetime. Being adopted is an experience we didn’t ask for, or even cause. There are real and raw moments when it seems that the pain and confusion of adoption cannot be overcome. Asking why, often times, seems pointless when answers are hard to find. Adoption can seem unfair. Unjust. Adoption can hurt. You may wonder if you’ll ever move beyond the disempowering feelings. I want you to know that you can. You can move beyond the hurt. You can transform your relationship with adoption from pain to power, from pieces to promise. As an adoptee, I’m familiar with the anger that can intensify within. I’ve ached from the weight of unresolved emotions left bottled up inside. I have kept close company with fear. Afraid of rejection. Afraid of connection. I’ve lived parts of my life trying to inject myself into the past, only to discover that this didn’t really serve me. Trying to change what had already occurred left me feeling defeated and alone. I learned, over the years, that I couldn’t alter my early story. I didn’t hold that kind of power. I couldn’t go back and be the girl I was before adoption entered my life. Evolving into the woman I dreamed of becoming would require that I reframe my relationship to the past and to my own adoption. This reframing would be the only way forward to a meaningful and empowering transformation. I had to identify what was preventing me from progressing in my life and in my relationships. What was keeping me from feeling joy, experiencing love and connection, and a sense of purpose and calling? I discovered that living in the past of adoption and staying stuck in that place would never aide me in sharing the wealth of wisdom and compassion that I possess as an adoptee. I had to take ownership of these gifts. I couldn’t ignore them anymore. In other words, I needed to participate in my own rescue. I had to take responsibility for my life. No longer blaming other people or past situations for my pain. Read full blogpost here: https://michellemadridbranch.com/transforming-your-relationship-with-adoption/

Hi, I am looking for my half brother. His birth name was Dennis D Nelson, he was born on October 21, 1963 in Alameda, CA and was apparently adopted at a young age somewhere in California. I have found my half sister, his whole sister Debbie and she stated that she does not remember him, which I am thinking that my mom put him up for adoption and chose not to tell us that part of the story. His birth parents were Patricia (Howe) and George E Nelson. If anyone has any information or knows this person, please let me know. Thank you so much in advance. Rhonda

That's the day I was born in las cruces ,NM. I was adopted the next day and brought to Albuquerque, where I had the most loving family I could've ever asked for waiting to give me the most amazing childhood, and made me the woman I am today, but the empty space in my heart needs to be filled. I need to know my birth mother, and my birth family . I know she had what would've been my brother as well, and she was taking care of my mentally disabled aunt, due to whooping cough as a child. If this sounds familiar to you or close to someone you know please , please lmk . My name is Andrea I'm 37 and was born at the memorial hospital in las cruces nm . And my parents went through chapparral agency.
