This is a good article. I recommend people read it. Adopting a baby is one thing, but the fact is most kids in foster care are older. It’s not an easy process by any means. If you’ve had an older student in foster care, you are a witness to this process.

I lived in tampa in my early 20s and am now in my late 30s and looking to move back. One of the reason I left is because I felt I had too much energy for the city for a single young professional, but now husband is from there and we have a kid but we are both social people. Do you guys find it easy to meet interesting people and has the city gotten any more fun?
Wanted to get an idea. My almost 10 month old baby never crawled not matter how much tummy time we did with her. She only wants to stand and is trying to walk (supported. She cannot pull herself up well and if she is on her back she doesn't know how to get herself up. She can roll over no issues. How can I help her? We do exercises to help her learn to pull herself up and roll her to the side to teach her how to move from back to sitting. I'm not sure how to help her. Ftm here. Anxiety!!!
What is your response when your kid says “dad, was that funny?!” and it was not funny? Insert whatever adjective you want.
When do you tell your work that you’re pregnant? We had an oops and surprise! I’m pregnant and due at the end of March. I’m terrified to tell them but I feel like I should tell them sooner than later since I’m due during busy season. 🤦🏼♀️ I’m married & we have other kids but they’re older & I didn’t work in PA when they were little so this is all new to me.
Who is on the Child Study team. I was told to contact them, but I am not sure what they do or who they are?
Last night I decided to leave my husband over recurring emotional infidelity. We have a one yo.
I’m worried abt how this will impact my career (I’m pretty early tenure) and don’t know how I could parent without a partner as a consultant
Also worried about how this will affect my finances immediately (I make more and have more in my retirement accounts) and in the long term
What should my next step be? I haven’t yet told him.
When does it make sense for a company to adopt a management structure where managers are in the field but also has direct reports (player coach model) vs. managers whose sole responsibility is to manage the team (I.e., no longer in the field)?
Anyone care to share any fun old wives tales about what the gender of an unborn baby is? I’ve heard about the ring test (goes in a circle it’s a boy, straight line it’s a girl) and that if you crave salty foods it’s a boy vs sweet, it’s a girl. Were any of them correct??

Hi all! So first, husband and I are both 28. I’ve been pregnant before and had previous child at 23. I was obviously way younger. Didn’t even try to get pregnant back then. Fast forward five years later, want a baby badly. I am 50 pounds more than I was at 23. And my periods are now irregular. I do get them every month which the obgyn thought was a great sign. But I’m still not pregnant. I cant pinpoint ovulation as some months my period is 29-32 days and last month it was 45. Help
Looking for some advice on names, pregnant with a baby girl. My husband and I are not sharing names with family/friends until the baby is born to avoid any “I hate that name” or “ i knew a girl with that name, she was she the worst” type of feedback we will have to live with. But happy to get a pulse on favorite names from strangers 😬 Here are some of our tops names (really into E for some reason) any favs? Eloise (Eli), Edith (Edi), Ella, Avery, Elise (Eli), Amelia, Willa, Beatrix

Has anyone received the covid vaccine before or after your FET? I’m a bit conflicted as I’m just getting notification about being eligible to schedule the shot but I’m also two weeks out from my transfer. Spoke with the fertility clinic and know it’s a personal choice but conflicted as we have come a long way and there is not much data supporting trials with people that are pregnant ....benefit outweigh the risk?
I’m moving from NY to LA with my wife and baby. We are hoping to land in a furnished apartment and stay there just for a few months while we find our ideal spot to live (and to buy a home).

My fiancé and I (ages 30 and 31) are about to buy a house. We would put down 10% for a 835k purchase price. Our combined income is $265k. We both have around 7-10k left in emergency funds (each) and combined about 200k for retirement. Our mortgage is $4,500 a month and we split a car payment for $800. Is this an okay financial decision or should we have bought a cheaper house/saved more?

I’m embarrassed to admit this, but I think my social skills have essentially been erased by the pandemic. My company went back to the office a couple of weeks ago and I feel like it’s my first day at a new school or something. How am I supposed to get anything done? Anyone else somehow come out of this thing even more awkward than they already were?
