This is my first reply to your question, so anyone else is NOT me. The process of the home study can take as long as you make it take. So if you can get your paperwork done quickly, you can be done in a month or two. Having no criminal record ABSOLUTELY makes it easier, although birth moms generally won’t know that info. It just means you won’t be questioned about any crimes, which I assume might make the process take longer. Also, I’m not sure adoption agencies are allowed to turn people down due to how much or how little money they have. They basically just like to know that you CAN pay them. [ Reply | More ]

Use a quad-A attorney; they have a good code of ethics. Adoptive Families magazine, and their book "You Can Adopt" is very helpful. Remember that most of the advice people give you is a few years old, so always take it with a grain of salt. Process varies somewhat by state, but the general problem is that there are more couples who want babies than there are babies, so you have to work with an adoption agency (or more than one) or marketing person or private attorney to help you find eligible babies. If you're willing to adopt a non-infant it's supposedly easier. [ Reply | More ]

You're proposing sending disabled kids to families who don't want them and prefer babies? How does that help anyone? No, it should go by the desires of the adopters (and also the desires of the kid if the kid is old enough to have a preference.) [ Reply | More ]

I think we need to look at adoption as serving the kids, not the adults. All adoptees are damaged by the process, even (perhaps especially) babies. What happens if the adopter finds out the kid has disabilities at age 3? Can they send them back? [ Reply | More ]

Giving a kid to a family who WANTS them *IS* what is best for kids. How would you force a family to adopt a kid they don't want to adopt and why on earth would you think that's a good idea? There should be better systems in place to match families with kids like the way people find matches on okcupid and dating sites. Put in what your preferences are and have the system show you the kids who match that around the country. This could help families be matched with kids sooner. [ Reply | More ]

All these asylum applicants are clearly coming in from Mexico which means they are either Mexicans or other Central Americans who Mexico allowed into THIER borders. So why exactly are they being detained and processed on US soil? Why would it not be Mexico’s problem to figure this out if we don’t process them onshore.

(June 1) Media: Associated Press Tax returns for 2014 reveal that Sánchez earned $682,476— almost half of which, $315,284, were listed as "bonus & incentive compensation." LEAKED: Photo reveals 'mass trial' of immigrants in Texas courtroom Between 2014 and 2015, Sánchez received a pay raise of $88,384.

According to Southwest Key Programs, 98.9 percent of the company's profits come from grants and contract revenue. APPLES & ORANGES: Dan Patrick compares separating immigrant families to child protective services In talks with former employees at a Southwest Key facility, a 2015 report by the Arizona Daily Independent said minors are told by employees "that they would not be so fortunate without the kindness of the El Presidente," a nickname for Sánchez. The report said children "are shown a presentation that includes a tribute to El Presidente" with "images of El Presidente feeding masses of children" while "they are told that without his kindness they would not be here." Former employees "see a prison-like facility operated by an organization that views children as commodities and the employees as rent-a-cops, whose most important mission is keep their mouths shut while the organization does all it can to keep costs down and kids coming," the report said. On Wednesday, the Houston Chronicle Editorial Board argued that Congress and the public have a right to know what's inside these undocumented children facilities. "It doesn't matter what you call them — shelters, temporary housing or detention facilities — children are being held in these buildings against their will at the behest of the federal government," wrote the Editorial Board. "It doesn't matter if they're located on military bases or in old retail buildings, these buildings have essentially become jails. And in this country, we don't believe in secret jails."

APPLES & ORANGES: Dan Patrick compares separating immigrant families to child protective services In talks with former employees at a Southwest Key facility, a 2015 report by the Arizona Daily Independent said minors are told by employees "that they would not be so fortunate without the kindness of the El Presidente," a nickname for Sánchez. The report said children "are shown a presentation that includes a tribute to El Presidente" with "images of El Presidente feeding masses of children" while "they are told that without his kindness they would not be here." Former employees "see a prison-like facility operated by an organization that views children as commodities and the employees as rent-a-cops, whose most important mission is keep their mouths shut while the organization does all it can to keep costs down and kids coming," the report said. On Wednesday, the Houston Chronicle Editorial Board argued that Congress and the public have a right to know what's inside these undocumented children facilities. "It doesn't matter what you call them — shelters, temporary housing or detention facilities — children are being held in these buildings against their will at the behest of the federal government," wrote the Editorial Board. "It doesn't matter if they're located on military bases or in old retail buildings, these buildings have essentially become jails. And in this country, we don't believe in secret jails."
