Question: 1) How old do you have to be? 2) Does it still cost money if its someone in your family? 3) Does welfare handle adoption? My cousin has 2 girls (1, 6months) and she said she was gonna take them to welfare to sign them to someone else..? (my cousin is not 'all there') I thought welfare was for money.. ANYWAYS I am 17..is there anyway i could take them? and if not..could my 19 year old boyfriend?

Hi, Being 17, you would not be able to adopt. Your boyfriend at nineteen would probably have a difficult time getting an approved home study. A home study is required for all adoptions in the US. It includes items such as background checks, a financial review, parenting classes, meetings with a case worker, medical physical, home checks and lots of paperwork. Basically a home study tries to ensure the children will be placed in a stable, financially secure home. In a private adoption, you need to hire an adoption attorney or private adoption agency to process the home study for you. You would also need to hire an attorney to draw up all the paperwork required by the courts for finalization. In order for the children to be adopted, both biological parents must relinquish their parental rights. Your cousin could not put the children up for adoption without the father agreeing. If she turns the children over to Social Services (welfare), they will place the children in a licensed foster home. They will also contact the children's father to see if he would like custody. They would try to work with your cousin (counseling, parenting classes, etc.) to see if she can be reunited with her children. If neither parent wants to pursue custody and no family member comes forward, the children could eventually be adopted. If your cousin is serious, are there any other relatives who might take in these children? Adoption is not the only solution - transferring legal guardianship is usually simpler.

Follow a few simple steps ... Step 1 Weigh in several times per day on the medical scale your team uses for making weight. Weighing in so often isn't advisable for long-term weight loss, but you're concerned at this point with all fluctuations that might change your weight, even such factors as the physical weight of your meal. Step 2 Cut back on your meals starting four days before the match. Don't stop eating, just reduce the volume and weight. If you must skip a meal, skip dinner. Breakfast and lunch are more important to your performance in school and on the mat. Step 3 Begin restricting your water intake 24 hours prior to weigh-in. Water weight is where you'll lose 3 pounds in time for weigh-in, and within 24 hours you can't count on passing the water in time to make weight. Sip water from time to time to ease discomfort, and check in with your coach regularly to make sure you follow this step safely. Step 4 Do a cardiovascular workout, like running or jumping rope while wearing heavy sweats, on the evening before your match. This will make you sweat out water, resulting in water-weight loss. Weigh yourself every hour or so and sip a little water as you do so. Quit and go to bed when you have about a half-pound to go. Step 5 Weigh yourself when you wake up. You'll likely find that you've lost a half-pound or more as you slept. Step 6 Work out in your sweats again before going to school, or during your lunch breaks and gym class. Sip water periodically. Stop when your body weight is about 1 pound below your allowed weight. Step 7 Gather food and water you've brought for eating after weigh-in. Hold some in your hands as you weigh yourself so the total weight on the scale is equal to your allowed weight for competition. Step 8 Eat the food and drink the water you were holding, slowly and over the course of the day. At this point, it's the physical weight of the food that matters. This much food, and no more, will give you fluids and energy without risking your weight. Tips and Warnings: -If you're having trouble in the last hours, shave your head. Your hair can weigh 1 pound or more and will retain sweat you shed during your workouts. -This kind of weight loss will impede your performance in the short term and create health risks in the long term. Cut weight quickly only with the approval of your doctor and under the supervision of your coach.

That will remove some excess fluid from the body. ;)

soups can be both filling and comforting try making a garden or bean soup with low salt broth and store in portion sized cups for later

it all depends on your state and the age your able to adopt. most agencies i know of you have to be 21 and some you have to be 25. the site below you find agency or attorneys in your area to help you. also you can call child and family services there you may be able to at 18 not sure. but you also have to show you can provide for a child. http://www.theadoptionguide.com/

1) first visit: consult & fees/financing (if applicable) is discussed; then, 2nd visit (or could be 1st too): photos, impressions of upper and lower arches, and x-rays are taken; then, brackets and arch wires are put on. In some cases (based on your schedule and dentist's schedule) this procedure could be done in 1 visit. Ideally, though, there has to be some time for the dentist to study your teeth & mouth condition b4 proceeding with the work; but experienced and seasoned dentists can do it all in one seating, given the time. 2) hmmm, it's a case to case basis. Others, experience pain for several days and, believe it or not, there are others who are ok with it. One thing is true, there is pain in the beginning that lasts for a few days or so, the first time it is put on... as the tth start to move. There will be some tenderness when teeth come together that's why, it's a little hard to eat. But again, it's a case to case basis... I don't remember having that much pain... it was a breeze for me. 3) After the braces are put on, wait for AT LEAST a day before eating food; liquid diet (protein shakes and super mushy food) would do. The cement used to attach the brackets should set completely. Otherwise, you can weaken the cement and the brackets become loose in a few days; which means that you have to go back to your dentist to re-cement brackets that came off. You don't want hassles like this... Anyway, with braces, stay away from hard, crunchy, sticky, gummy food. You may want to slice your fruits like apples, etc. No corn on the cob pls. Hey, no worries, if you will have braces, just get on with it... it's not that hard. Get it over with. You'll get along with it and find your own ways of chewing and enjoying food again. 4) Hmmm, i did not pay for my braces, a dentist friend of mine did it for me for free... Braces ranges from $2,000 - $8,000 or more for other dentists with specialty. Shop around for a dentist. Ask your friends who had or have braces about their dentists / orthodontist. Know how much money you can shell out. Having insurance helps a lot. Ask about financing. Find out how long your treatment is going to be and the possibility of spreading the payment throughout the course of treatment. 5) Braces are tightened up in 2 weeks or 1 month, etc. This depends on who you're going to. Different dentists using different techniques (though achieving same results) have their own time schedule. Majority of dentists do see their ortho patients for tightening and check-up every month. I hope this answer your questions. Smile ; ) Good luck to you.
