    Rescue dogs....rescue any type of animal and it brings a smile to most and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  And with having a TV show about just this thing for 13 years now, it brings out all of those who want to join in the movement of "rescuing animals."   And while it is such an admirable thing to do, there is so much more than just throwing around the "R" word.
    With the sake of sounding bitter, maybe even a tad bit sarcastic, I need to give you the dose of reality of what is really needed to run a proper rescue organization.  And I do apologize for not sugar coating it but I'm doing this episode to save you tons of heartache and even more money.  I want you to really know what you're about to dive into.  It's a world of mainly pain and suffering and lots of depressing days.  There are more bad days than good.  Yeah...I sucks.  But it's true.
    This episode will introduce you to just some of what you are about to entail when starting up your own "rescue".  And while it would be amazing if we could have more reputable rescue groups out there it does scare me that the majority of those do not truly know the world they are  about to be consumed in.  And then the question becomes..."what happens when the rescue needs rescuing?"
    You'd better buckle up buttercup...this one is gonna make your eyes squint.

    Birth Mother Matters in Adoption Season 2, 123: Factors Contributing to Success

    in Family

    Birth Mother Matters in Adoption Season 2, Podcast 123: Factors Contributing to Successful Adoptions
    Many adoptive families inquiring about adoption what they could have done to increase their chances of their adoption being a success.  We have spoken in previous podcasts about why adoptions sometimes fail due to the birth mother or birth parents.  So that begs the question; can adoptive families do anything to improve or increase the chances?  YES.  Also, sometimes it is the adoptive family that changes their mind about adoptive the baby from their matched birth mother.
    Adoptive Families have a bigger influence over their adoption success than they may realize.  There are things you as an adoptive family can do to improve the likelihood of a successful adoption.  Here are some suggestions that may increase your chances:
    When you create your adoption profile book, make sure you send a copy of it to the adoption agency, even if your birth mother was presented with a pdf.  Most birth parents love to keep a copy of the adoption profile and memorize it during the course of their pregnancy.  It also gives them comfort to see photos of the adoptive family over and over again, the house the baby will live in and the people the baby will be surrounded by. If you have an open adoption and you live out of state and the birth mother is open to you traveling to see her before she delivers- DO IT! It is much easier to build a relationship over the phone and skype of facetime if you have met at in person.  Often times meeting in person will show your birth mother how much she means to you and the sacrifices and lengths you are willing to go to establish a lifelong relationship with her... There are so many suggestions, listen to the podcast and learn more ways to possibly increase your chances of a successful adoption.

    Baby Mama Drama - Sometimes If You Push Too Hard, You Run People Away

    in Family

    Please join us as we discuss another controversial story from our book "Baby Mama Drama - It's Not Just About The Mama" , it's so much more!
    "Sometimes If You Push Too Hard, You Run People Away"
    Baby mamas can be needy sometimes and I understand that, but this baby mama puts the “need” in needy. She calls me for everything. She calls me at night telling me the kids can’t sleep or that they need this and that. I don’t really have a problem with that, but asking me to fix her car or her house is pushing it. Then she wants to drop the kids off at the house without any planning. This is causing problems with my woman and I. I want to be there for my kids but I have actually started pulling back these days. I’m so conflicted!
    Family Drama Network, LLC. "Theme 1 - Who Cares About The Significant Other" Baby Mama Drama - It's Not Just About The Mama. Amazon KDP, 2015, Page 13.

About Family

Like the TV show, modern families come in all shapes and sizes. Many children are a product of divorce, are in touch with both their biological and adopted parents, have two moms or two dads (or both), or are being raised by their grandparents. No matter how atypical the face of today's family, the values stay the same: love and support. Moms and dads will find plenty of support in BlogTalkRadio's parenting shows, especially those about time-management topics that fit both stay-at-home and working parents: organizing kids' activity schedules, decluttering, reducing the workweek, managing stress, making quick meals and more. We've also got shows about friendship – you know, your family of choice rather than family of origin. Just remember: everyone's family seems dysfunctional in its own way. And family may irritate you, but more often than not, you can always count on family to pick you up from the airport.
