I'm Missing the Crazy Adoption Threads

Has all been quiet in fundie adoption land, or have the blogs gone private? Surely someone is publicly doing something batshit crazy. Help a sister out.

This is a semi rant... I am an adoptive parent. I've had three successful adoptions (3 and 4 came as a package) and a failed adoption, and countless ads in the paper, prospective leads, home studies,

There's no place like home doesn't blog much anymore, they moved and then had to go back. She never gives much details but now she posts maybe every few months, if at all. They haven't adopted recently.

Actually, they did add another daughter to their family last year. It sounds like it was another failed adoption/re-home situation.  Pretty sure China has finally cut them off.

Ah I missed that!! I used to check frequently but since she stopped blogging a lot I only check every few months. Yeah, you are right about China cutting them off, if i remember correctly they tried to do another double adoption and got denied. I only remember Jenny being added as a failed adoption, didn't realize there was another one.

I had Jenny and Grace mixed up too, they add kids one after the other, but totally missed Mary, the last adoption that happened in 2019!

What about fencingmama? I'm a bit scared about what happened with the older girls

I so agree. She went radio silent quite awhile ago, but that was a bad situation.

I did not hear of this family before but I googled them because of this topic.

I see they introduce their kids on the side of the blog and in between the 5 'birth kids' there is a picture of 'Billy & Kelly'. I don't know which of the two is theirs and which is the spouse but if they are in birth order, they should be between 27 and 32 years old. It says 'been married for 15 years but dated for 10 years beforehand'.

Does that mean these people started dating at the age of 7 at the latest? 🤔

They have been married 1.5 years. You just missed the period between the numbers... Easy to do with the font she uses on the blog.  Billy is the son.

One of my earliest Fundie blogs was Mama D (Laurel Diacogenis ... I can never spell her name without looking it up but probably just as well to leave it incorrect if this is one of the public threads).  A month or two ago I was curious about her kids and found several of them on FB and from what was public I found out a bunch of updates.  Posted it on her archive thread and I don't remember all of the details atm but highlights were that Hosanna got married, Rachel (one of the adopted daughters) is living in Minnesota, the other adopted daughter - the one who was shipped off to a therapeutic group home - was still there but had won a poetry recitation competition in Idaho, and then the older daughter who had moved to Australia has a website that sounds like she's completely left her religion and is doing some new agey stuff.

Is Megan Redshaw blogging anywhere? She was nuts. I can’t remember if her kids from the Congo were permanently placed or if it was in limbo.

I bet lots of these adoption bloggers have dropped out of sight to avoid CFS scrutiny.

Living Whole on Facebook (it's an open page). She posted something on January 28 about how she's been fighting for 21 months to get her kids back.

Let’s hope she never gets them back and eventually gives up. They are better off with someone who actually wants them.

Can't remember her name .but that nutcase lady who adopted four Chinese girls with disabilities -

She called the youngest "Apple" and JiJi? Radio silent for ages, her firefighter boyfreind left her and her last blog post was rather dark and alarming, any updates on her? I think the oldest must be a legal adult now.

Yeah, that was fencingmama.

It was such an awful situation. I’ve read all the threads and the way she treated the girls was just horrific.

Can't figure out how to quote from other threads, so here's a link and a screenshot from the blog post.

It's downright scary and when I klicked on her blog link just now it said the privacy changed to invited readers only.

From Jean's There's No Place Like Home you can go to Place Called Simplicity and Seriously Blessed both are large international adoptive families and there is also http://headsup07up.blogspot.com. A foster care adoption blog (adopted 4 siblings from foster care) https://nomoremoves.blogspot.com shares the difficult struggles of a child J with RAD (reactive attachment disorder), and is probably one of the most comprehensive in detailing the various residential treatments they seek, and mental health struggles J has. The blog also discusses some of D's struggles with mental health. 

https://mineinchina.com keeps very current on the changes in adoption in China.

I followed fencingmama for years. When her blog went private that's when I first found freejinger looking for an update!

In addition to adoption blogs I used to read a lot of blogs about multiples. They sometimes had a similar feel of "in way over our heads but this is what God wanted so...".

Wow, thanks for that bit of insanity. Even scarier, the two comments that were readable agreed with and applauded her. The lady who said "ditto" also said she was opening up her home to two more, bc you always say 'yes' to God. If God is speaking to them, I'm pretty sure something is getting lost in the translation. 

Edited to add: I'd love to know if commenter actually adopted two more. Let's hope not.

@AussieKrissy started a thread in Quiverfull of True Crime  on an "adoption by kidnapping" in the Philippines by a Mormon mother of five from Sandy, Utah. 

Apparently, the mom went to the Philippines, where she'd arranged to be at the birth of a baby, and attempted to return to the US with the 6-day-old infant by hiding him in a sling bag. She got through Immigration but was arrested during the boarding process because she had no documentation for the baby.  It seems the birth mother readily gave up her baby to Jennifer Talbot, but there are few other details.

      A happy summer solstice to all northern hemisphere FJers! And a happy winter solstice to all southern hemisphere FJers! (I know it's already Monday is Australia, so I'm late for most of you.)

      ETA--Oh! I just checked, and the winter solstice is at 1:31 PM on Monday, June 21 in Eastern Australia Time. So, for once the time zones worked in my favor. I'm not late!

      I'm so angry at the Bishops right now. Shit like this is why I left the Catholic church. They play politics so blatantly.  I hope this convinces more people to leave.

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.

      Dear FJ ladies of a certain age.  Did you know that joint pain can appear/increase with perimenopause and menopause?  No?  Me neither till my rheumatologist told me yesterday.  It's all down to the fall in (o)estrogen. 
      Looking online, it'll either settle down as your hormones adapt to their new levels OR you're stuck with it!  I don't fancy needing NSAIDs for the rest of my life.

      This evening a biker dude went out of his way to follow my car into a retail store's parking lot to lecture me on - get this - braking when the light turned yellow. I had been going the speed limit and it was by no means the shortest stop I've ever made. He condescendingly told me that next time I should hit the gas because people like him could "go splat" into my car. Really dude?!? If you're going to drive any vehicle, especially a motorcycle, actually learn to drive it and don't effing tailgate me when I'm going the speed limit. And if you did rear-end me, guess whose fault it would be? Certainly not the person who was obeying the law.
      Also, I hate living in a society where I have to say this, but I am soooo thankful my male coworker was with me. The biker stopped his bike right behind my car when I parked and wouldn't move it until his lecture was over. If I had been alone I would have been terrified.
