You think credit repair is frustrating, try adoption!

Anyone else out there going through the process of adopting a child?

Re: You think credit repair is frustrating, try adoption!

Tusc...Have never been involved in child adoption matters but I am reasonably sure that if anybody ever would be a good father it would be you. I believe that people in this forum, many of which you have helped, would agree with me. I would only hope and pray you can succeed in the adoption process.

I would have thought when they found out his FICOs were in the 400's he took a big hit  :smileyvery-happy:

I never thought I would share this with anyone here but I was adopted at a young age. My dad  later told me how difficult the whole process was. He had to prove he was worthy emotionally, financially, have no criminal record so forth and so forth and so forth. A lot of time spent with judges and lawyers (it was complicated to say the least). But he did succeed! And we are grateful! Tusc you must stay strong and be your usual assertive self. It just takes time! Keep fighting!

My family member is still trying to adopt from over seas for 3 years. It's waiting and mostly "timing". Their friends got a baby after 6 months, and my family member is still waiting. It is difficult and lengthy (also expensive) but can be very rewarding. :smileyhappy: I hope it works out for you soon.

Tusc,
 
I am going throught the adoption of a Step-Child and while easier than other adoptions it is still one of the most difficult and exspensive things I have done. But I know the rewards will be greater than anything I can get from EX, EQ, and TU. :smileyhappy:

Tuscani-
I have two kids. You can have the one that's going to Berklee in Boston at $10k a semester!
 
Seriously - I am a firm believer that all things worth this kind of time and effort are ultimately worth it. I wish you and yours all the best!

Tusc- DH and I have just begun the process. We are going through Catholic charities in Louisville Ky. If you have any questions you can pm me and we can talk. I know what you are going through- or are starting to go through at least.

Re: You think credit repair is frustrating, try adoption!

Tuscani--I was adopted back in 1954 when I was 10 days old. Even then, it took my parents 2 years to become parents. All I know is that it's the best thing that ever could have happened to me. Bless you for giving a child a new start in life.
