How do you convince your parents to adopt a child?

First of all, you have to pick the right time to ask them, like pick the time when they're calm and just sitting around doing nothing. Then to ask them, you say something like, "Mom, Dad, I don't think that you know that I've really wanted this for a while now and I don't know what you'll say about it but I really, really want to adopt a brother/sister from this Adoption Agency." If they say no to you mention to them that you will raise the money yourself by selling things like T-shirts, running a concession stand near the pool on a hot day, etc. Do whatever you can to get them to say yes. And if they do start saving up as quick as you can. Adoptions range between $5,000 to $20,000 or more especially overseas. So the faster you get the money the quicker you'll have someone new in the house!

A bit more:

You don't. Raising a child is a huge responsibility - financially, emotionally and physically. And these responsibilities last for many, many years. If your parents want another child they will have one, or they will adopt one.

If they don't want another child, it would be very selfish of you to try to convince them to adopt one, because you would be thinking of what you want rather than what they want, or what they feel they can handle.

You also have to consider the adopted child. What if you did hound your parents about it until you did finally wear them down and they finally agree to do so? They may possibly end up resentful of the adopted child, which would be a disaster for that innocent child, as well as your whole family.

Adopting, or even having a child, is the decision of the parents, and they will make the decision they feel is best for them, and the entire family. I hope you will respect their decision.

Impacts of children growing up without parents?

they might be in a trauma, deppressed. They would wonder a lot of things and it would make them really sad to see other children with parents. THey might try commiting suicide. They give up on mostly anything sometimes. Though, some of the children, it could make them stronger if they see it in another way which isn't really common. They would be more independent, more understandable about things, could learn from their mistakes.

im Anthony and i have grown up without parents, its because they were heroin,meth,crack, and coke addicts and they were also alcoholics.I had a really good childhood i wasnt depressed until i was older because i realized what had happened because i didnt really didnt understand since i was so small and yes im suicidal, and

bi-polar(manic depressive) my age right now is 15 turning 16. i have really bad depression issues, to be honest with you i really don't like life or anybody in it cause i cant trust anyone because i constantly think theyre going to walk out on me just like my mom and dad did. Ive been in hospitals because of it. One more thing the reason why i have issues is because i have a really negative mind set everyday i think to myself well if my parents didnt want me who would, im there blood and flesh and they threw me away like a piece of garbage. I have a lot of more things to say lol but i don't want to waist your time. thanks for reading if you have anymore questions about it just message me =)

minor adoptionsI've beent there tried that. Your parents have to agree to the adoption first of all, and they have to legally give up their rights as your legal guardians. It also depends on the reason behind it all and to whom you will be adopted by and if they equiped to do so. Good Luck. You should really take time out to think about why you want to be adopted.

------------------

If so, then someone please produce ANY photos x 2 intervals of pre-pregnancy carrying near term(ALL women and friends have them and kid/brag about them), baby shower, ultra-sound stories and the witnesses to stories of rush to hospital, labor and delivery, natural vs spinal vs C-Section and the proud father ordeals before delivery, and after, handing out pink labeled cigars(he was(is) a smoker at the most nervous of times), and other proud pre-term/term fatherhood anecdotes EVERY father has them and brags/relents about them..... instead of the blighted inter-net and biographies lacking any such info and focusing more emphasis on poker, golf, basketball and vacant career during these very time periods, to the point one must consider something is major wrong in the parent mind, or the shortest ignored of stories told. This is asked for the purposes of a facade not only tarnishing the glorious expectancy experience of all parents, never to be muzzled, and the greatest loss of opportunity for Advocacy such a celebrity and statured couple could bring to Adoption. Not just asking, where is the normal proud behavior of parents ever illustrated?, but why such a mediocre attempt to crush the evidence?.... a major void in the most essential aspect of one's lives, especially those who base their Live's work on "Community" and Children"s dispositions. Sorry, but a sign in a hospital saying "Michelle slept here" does not suffice without the witnesses, stories and photos. All is not right, and this is not Camelot.

---If normal human parent pride can be shown, then this statement would be retracted with still the question..why...where was your pride??

---If another reality, then be the grandest of advocacy for the second greatest origin of families, and quell the embarrassment of all children adopted who look up to idols less than proud and true. It takes away from anything else in sincerity which can be proclaimed in cause for such high visibility and prowess.

How much money do foster parents get to foster a newborn baby?

Answer:

If you feel compelled to ask about how much money you will receive as a foster parent; you should not be participating in this area. The priority is the child's welfare, which is carefully monitored by the foster agency. You will receive enough money to meet the child's needs, plus some. Still, this is not about a family business, its about the appropriate development, nurturing, and an over-all maturation process to ensure a child's future. Its not about money.

Rebuttal:

However, the reason I wanted to know a ball park figure is that I am raising my two grandchildren, keeping them out of the foster care system. I get a grant from the state to help me out, which takes care of the day care while I work and a small amount per month on top of that. They act as if they are paying me out of their pocket and I get a lot of grief from them. So my question about how much it pays was to determine about how much the state saves when someone steps up and takes the children instead of putting them in to foster care. I do firmly believe what you said however, if you are looking into doing this, the money you make should not be why you do it.

--------------------------------------

Answer:

This varies widely from state to state but the typical range is between $15 and $30 a day in total compensation. That compensation is not always in cash and may be a combination of food stamps, clothing vouchers and donated goods.

Something else to keep in mind is that these compensations are considered reimbursement. Meaning you are expected to front all of the expenses up front and may not receive anything in return for 4 to 6 weeks.

For example a child may show up with no extra clothing, you may be given $50 a month for a clothing allowance, you are not likely to receive your first $50 clothing voucher for 4 to 6 weeks after getting the child. So you would be fronting any clothing expenses the child needs and by the time you get more money for clothing it is likely to be time to buy something else with that money.

This is an issue that needs to be considered for all basic necessities like food, clothing, entertainment, school supplies, etc. Also note that you will not be reimbursed for any large setup costs such as furniture for bedrooms.

The only expenses you are not normally expected to cover will be medical as the child should be put on a state sponsored medical program, though in some states there may still be an up front and/or non refundable deductible that is out of pocket to the foster parent.

If a child has special needs (handicap, etc) there may be small allowances for additional unusual expenses but again these are likely to be reimbursed after the parent fronts the money and will often require receipts to prove the cost.

There are essentially two options with foster care, take in only one or two children, typically in addition to your own and do it purely out of love. You will lose money, so you will need to have enough income to cover the addition of more children into your life. The amount reimbursed is likely to barely scratch the surface.

The second option is full time fostering of multiple children. If you have the space to foster 6 to 10 children at once you may be able to leverage the reimbursements to cover all expenses. Food budgets can be stretched by making large cheaper meals at home, clothing budgets can be stretched with hand me downs and group events can be organized to help attempt to keep the children entertained at minimal costs. You still wont be making much that could be considered profit, but you might get by without a job of your own if you make fostering your full time activity.

If for any reason you are considering doing this for the money, realize you will be much higher paid operating a professional day care with private clients than what you will be getting as a foster parent even with multiple children. And foster parenting is 24/7, these kids aren't going home at the end of the day.

Can a parent disown an adopted child?

Assuming "disown" means the parent wants to give up his or her obligation to a minor child, then it is sometimes possible.

The parent wanting to voluntarily give up parental rights can file a Termnation of Parental Rights petition in the probate court in the county and state where they live.

If "disown" means to leave the child out of one's will then of course it is possible. There aren't laws which force anyone upon their demise to leave assets or property to children or other persons.

The exception being property that automatically reverts to a surviving spouse under state marital law.
