    I agree that it's entirely normal. It's a huge change and there is really no going back. BUT that said, do feel the freedom to put it off if you are not feeling 100% ready or even if you're just...

    Check out the National Downs Syndrome Adoption Network. I'm not sure if they do state adoptions as well, or just private.

    I wouldn't be afraid of strangers snatching my child- abductions are almost always the non-custodial parent, even though they do not always get reported that way. Then when there very rarely is a...

    I am still baffled by the fact that a person who...

    I know it's so hard to switch caregivers, but I would. It's not so much the issue of her possibly not giving the milk (though that is really not OK either) but more that it seems like a red flag. You...

    Have you been checked for anemia and thyroid issues? Pregnancy can mess up your thyroid and that can cause you to excessively lose weight.
