Question: My hubby is AD Army and we have no kids due to a medical issue I have (I am unable to become pregnant) and we would love to adopt!! My friend told me that she saw an article on military.com that said the military will help you in terms of adoption. Does anyone know anything about this? How do they help? By finding you a child or....? Any info helpful!!

There are a couple ways the military can help. First, is the paperwork. You have the legal office and the Family Readiness Centers to help with that. Secondly, they can extend his orders to allow sufficient time to complete the adoption process. He'll need to talk with the First Sergeant. Good Luck.

I think (in some cases) that you could include the social workers, case workers, foster parents, etc. Our sons were adopted through foster care and we see their former foster parents and CASA worker on a regular basis. They invested a lot of time and effort on the case, and developed a relationship with the boys. They love to be able to see they grow and will likely continue to be part of their lives for some time.

I believe you've pretty much covered it all, but I could add one more since it pertains to me right now. My firstdaughter recently had a baby boy...her mother calls me his grandma, but I'm not quite sure if it fits or not. So I would have to say, the children of the adopted child would be #9. If they ever want to research thier family tree, this is a factor as well as the medical records for his or her future. 1. Adopted child-can't really speak for all adoptees, I'd say the feeling of not being wanted, or maybe the feeling of not being complete or whole? Maybe they are perfectly content in who they are and where they are and it doesn't matter. 2. Birthparents-Again, I can't speak for all, but for me, it was years of having that missing part of me for 20+ yrs. It was the constant question of what if I had made a different choice and chose to parent. 3. Adopting parents-Again, only opinion, maybe they feel whole or blessed or just happy to add to thier existing family. 4. Adopted child's blood relatives-IMO- maybe they feel jilted out of a grandaughter,sister or brother? 5. Adopting parents' relatives-IMO-Excited extremely supportive of the parents to be, or maybe they don't understand at all and are not supportive. 6. Adopted child's friends-IMO- enlightened? 7. Adopted child's birth-siblings-IMO-happy they have a new brother or sister, jealous of the unknown or known sibling, or unbiased. 8. Existing siblings in Adopting family-IMO-depends on each individual situation Pretty much all you ask widely varies from situation to situation and I am sure you will find tons of great input for your research. Don't know if I helped but good luck!

I don't forget myself anti-adoption and I outline it as being antagonistic to the adoption enterprise with it is misleading train which individually incorporate -pre-start matching, coercion and disgrace procedures used on moms, falsification of start files, sealed files, and the complete shroud of secrecy that surrounds the enterprise. I am conscious that there are routinely occasions wherein a mom are not able to/won't father or mother her little one and if so I could decide on to peer kinship adoption or legalized guardianship instead than the historic down and soiled adoption. Because I have an objection to the best way adoption is practiced extra most likely than no longer, I am viewed anti-adoption by way of many. You understand what they are saying - sticks and stones and many others. Anyone who stands up for rights is most likely accused of being radical - so be it.

It would have been just as fast for you to do what I just did. Sounds as if your benefits include adoption leave and some reimbursement of expenses. I went to www.military.com, typed adoption in the search box and was directed to several links. Here is one http://www.military.com/MilitaryCareers/... Under National military family association I found this: http://www.militaryfamily.org/your-benef...

India Originally Answered: Military translator, does it even exist? How useful would it be for a trilingual in the military?
To be enlisted you only need to be a legal permanent resident with a green card. Only officers have to be American citizens. If this is the case then you can join the military. And since you speak Arabic I'm sure there are a bunch of bonuses (more pay, or enlistment bonuses for speaking one language, etc) and the Army could have lots of use for you. Talk to recruiters from all branches (Marines, US Army, Navy, Air Force) and see which ones offer the best deals. Do your own researcher online because recruiters tend to lie and feed you all the stuff you want to hear.

I'm pretty certain Arabic is one of the top tier foreign languages that are wanted right now...if you enlist you can even earn extra money (I think up to several hundred a month extra)...talk to a recruiter...If you are physically fit and have a fighting spirit I suggest you speak with a Marine Corps recruiter. Oh and good luck with your computer engineering studies...the course work is a real ball buster.
