Well done Dotsie. Another step closer is definitely worth the housework. :D :D

Good news Dotsie. I hope all this red tape stuff is over soon and you can get on with the real business of bring up a child in a caring and loving home. :D

Good news.

To a degree it's understandable they're making such a fuss, but given that no one has to pass any checks before getting pregnant and giving a birth, the things people who want to adopt a child obviously have to go through seem disproportionate.

I suppose they have to separate the crowd somehow .

Isn't that frickin' ironic, given how 16-year old girls can have unwanted kids and take 'em home to rat-infested crack dens, but people who want to adopt kids and who would obviously be far more careful and caring (if you're willing to jump through the hoops, you're probably a very meticulous person or family anyway) have to "prove" that their houses are safe?

This is why we need parenting licences, people.

Isn't that were a lot of Dystopian fiction starts or ends up . But sadly I look around public transport in Dublin and can't help but agree.

No Q, not always. The vast majority of parents who, by some accident of biology, find themselves holding a brand new tiny human being for the very first time actually are prepared to give that little one their very best shot at a life in which they can fulfill their greatest potential. At that moment of introduction they find a ferocious love inside themselves for their child that they never imagined it was possible to feel. Love that would even kill to protect from outside harm. And, what is more, the majority of parents in the lands where you and I live, Q, do their best to be GOOD ENOUGH parents. They will never be perfect....but who is?
I'm putting the case of the 'good enough' parent today because it was on this day 25 years ago that I pushed into the world the beautiful, wonderful little entity who is my daughter......currently out at the pub with her best friend :lol:
I'm on the side of parents AND kids all over the world.

Bad parenting doesn't just happen in poor families, and to say 16 year old mothers raise their children in crack dens is appalling.

Good news though, Dotsie.

I was feeling pretty good today. It's faded a bit now :( .

Not that great - too many people I know dying. Makes me aware of my own mortality.
