Birthmother Housing

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

When facing an unplanned pregnancy, you might feel scared, alone or even worried about your future and the future of your unborn child. If your friends and family aren’t supportive during this time, it can lead to more stress and make you feel even more alone as you map out your future. This is why many adoption professionals provide birth mother housing. It gives expectant mothers considering adoption a safe and secure place, where they feel accepted and supported as they move forward in their pregnancy.

Birth mother housing comes in many different shapes and sizes. Some professionals offer a more low-key arrangement, allowing expectant mothers to stay with families who volunteer their time and space for women who are in need of a safe and secure place to stay throughout their pregnancy. Other professionals offer a more independent living setting, where expectant mothers will share an apartment or house that more closely resembles the comforts of home, while you share your experience with other expectant mothers who are making adoption plans for their child.

Utilizing birth mother housing options allows you to have access to support staff and volunteers who are there to help counsel you in your time of greatest need. Adoption professionals who provide this service do so because they realize the importance of offering support and guidance during this emotional time. Having someone to talk to who can help you cope with the emotions surrounding your unplanned pregnancy as well as assist you in making a successful adoption plan is an invaluable resource. Taking advantage of birth mother housing gives you the support and advice you need at your fingertips.

There is hope. If you need someone to talk to who will support you in your adoption plan while offering you a safe place to stay during your pregnancy or simply want more information, please contact Legacy 4 Kids Foundation at 877-768-4064.

Save Your Daughter Without Instilling Fear or Negative Thoughts

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

All Grown Up Already?

Is she my baby or is she a young woman? It is hard to define in this current world we live in. Our kids are subjected to so much so soon. Even the Disney Channel is confusing these days.

If you are a struggling mom, grandmother, aunt or friend of a young girl ages 4-16 I am sure you can see the dilemmas. It is so difficult to chat with our kids about all of the issues they are facing.

When I was a teen the world was smaller. Still scary, but a whole bunch smaller. Porn mags and strangers were the enemy. Now – there is a reason for us to fear for our children while they are in our own homes right in front of us.

The computers are giving them access to a complete world out there. We need to know and have systems in place to be sure they are not in danger while we parents are cooking dinner or watching the news. Speaking of the news…TURN IT OFF if your little ones are in the room. It is scary, negative and trite at times. If they are not talking about war, economic and cataclysmic issues they are following the Kardashians lives or Lyndsey Lohan’s latest escapades. Your little girl does NOT need to know this. That “NEED TO KNOW” thing is important people!  What are you filling her head with? Just as important as what your are feeding her little body is what you are feeding her mind! Think about it.

What do they need to know? Check out our very important informational event here and find out how to keep our young ones safe. It is FREE to listen in.

I wish my parents would of listened to a program when I was growing up. My life would of been a whole lot different with a lot less chaos.

Internet Preditor – Alicia's Story

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Our new and very real concern and nightmare for both you and your children. Be aware, the box they are talking to can be dangerous and deadly!

Child Sexual Abuse: Putting the Problem in Context

Research indicates that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually victimized before adulthood; sadly, 30-40% of these victims are abused by a family member and 50% are abused by someone outside the family whom they know and trust. Although the majority of this child sexual abuse does not occur online, in the Internet age, offline sex abuse is fueled by pedophiles’ unprecedented access to child pornography and exacerbated as perpetrators post pictures online of their exploits. www.internetsafety101.org

Learn how to protect your family from this very real preditor!

Sex and drugs in MIDDLE school?

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Happy Friday,

ABC news recently did a special where they followed around MIDDLE school students to document what kind of pressures they are facing when it comes to sex and drugs.

You can read all about it here, but I wanted to give you a few highlights from the article:

http://abcnews.go.com/2020/story?id=123789&page=1

Anya Alvarez, a 13-year-old girl from Tulsa, Okla., agreed to record a video diary for 20/20. In it, she describes her transition from childhood to adolescence. “When I was 5,” Anya said, “it was like, ‘Should I give him a toy or not? Now, it’s should I smoke weed? Should I have sex? Should I lie to my parents?”

Students told us that some kids are having sex in school bathrooms and hallways — even in classrooms.

At a middle school outside Baltimore, Md., a couple of 12-year-olds had oral sex in their science class. Their classmates watched, but the teacher didn’t see them. (The teacher was suspended and later resigned.)

And the kids say it happens at home too, and parents almost never know.

We’re talking about GOOD kids here! Kids from affluent and middle-class backgrounds whose parents are involved in their lives.  Yet the temptation and pressure to do adult things still exists and it’s causing our kids to engage in risky behavior earlier than ever before!

That’s why I can’t encourage you enough to join me on September 8th at 6pm Pacific – 9pm Eastern for a f’ree teleclass I am hosting entitled, “ESCAPE- 6 Steps to Preparing Girls for Success, Health and Happiness and Avoiding Teen Crisis”.

On this call, you will learn proven techniques and strategies that you can implement at ANY age (and honestly, the younger the better), to help your daughter feel secure and confident enough to make good choices when these pressures arise in life.

You will also learn about other “modern life” dangers that you may not be aware of (let’s face it,  A LOT has chanced since we were kids!) and how to ensure you are doing everything within your power to groom your little girl for success.

Sound interesting?

You can get all of the details now by visiting this page. There is no charge to attend and we’ll even send you a MP3 recording if you can’t make the call live for whatever reason.

So go ahead, get registered here and mark off September 8th at 6pm Pacific – 9pm Eastern on your calendar.  Whether you have a toddler, an adolescent, a tween or teen, this is life-changing information that you won’t want to miss!

To your family’s happiness,
