It's hard to request more money when you cut off contact from those you're requesting more money.

One of the reasons why a lot of folks prefer to adopt internationally. Sure it's a lot of paprework, red tape and $$$ but you don't have to worry as much about BS like this happening.

FTA:
"Channel 9's Ryan Hughes stopped by Rader's residence at an Orange County motel.

Her husband said the family decided to keep the baby and planned to pay back the agency."



Somehow I suspect they may have issues paying $9,000 back to the agency.

This is one of my fears.  My wife and i are going into adoption and its going to cost us approximately $33k in medical, fees, and certification (our state requires you become certified as a foster parent first).

I wish you the best of luck.  Adopting an infant carries with it a good deal of risk, legally, financially and emotionally.  State laws concerning adoption were often amended in order to promote adoption and sadly some of those changes were not well considered- they often put  in place time restrictions on paternity claims and parental rights that don't pass constitutional muster as well as regulating payments for birth expenses etc to the birth mother.  Too often they leave the adoptive parents, the child and biological parents in the lurch to face protracted litigation, expense, uncertainty  and heartache.  I hope you have an experienced and ethical attorney assisting you who will minimize those risks as much as possible.  When everything works, it is the most wonderful thing in the world (the only time I ever saw a famously grumpy and unpleasant judge in my town smile was when he handled an adoption case I was involved in)  and I hope that is what you experience.

If she can't pay back the money, in full, immediately, then the baby should be taken from her and given to the adoptive parents.

My sister had to go through something like this, except after paying all the junkie mothers expenses the woman decided she wanted to have an abortion because she was afraid childbirth would be "too painful". There was nothing my sister could do legally, but fortunately we were able to think outside the box and come up with some motivating consequences for a woman who's terrified of pain. After we explained these consequences to her, she decided to have the baby and now I have an adorable little nephew.

Good luck to you! I am a birthmother and the adoptive parents didn't pay any of my medical costs. I have no idea how much it cost them. We went through an agency, not a private attorney. I wanted to make sure they have background checks done on them and with a private atty you don't get those assurances.

Well, the biggest reason is that there just aren't any healthy babies / toddlers just hanging around waiting to be adopted in the US.  You get on wait lists and wait and wait and wait...
 
2014-05-23 01:21:38 PM  
I know someone who went through a private adoption.  It was a calculated risk.  After the birth of the child the mother had the right to change her mind and all monies spent to that point would just be a loss to the person I know.  Fortunately it didn't work out that way and they did get their little rugrat.

Interesting that the adoption agency didn't confirm the child was indeed adopted before paying off the birth mother.

Good luck! A friend went through this process about ten years ago. One mother backed out and they lost about half the fees. The second one came through and she now has a healthy baby boy. Hmm, now that I think about it, I haven't seen her in a long time. That kid must be 8 or 9 by now. Damn, it sucks getting old ;-)

You shouldn't give cash to anyone. If they tell you they need money to pay a bill, ask for the bill and pay it. If they say they need money for rent, get the landlords contact info and pay them directly. She needs food or whatever, get it for her. Handing over thousands in cash to someone who is basically a stranger can never end well.
 
2014-05-23 02:19:57 PM  

MyRandomName: How can you request more money if you cut off contact?


By the courts.  You hear bout it now and then, some well off couple needs this.  But the woman that carries the child figures out that if she keeps it she can get CS form the couple.  So she keeps the kid and goes after the husband for CS and depending on the state that could be a lot.

Yeah, good luck with getting the money back. They'll end up in court and only get half back, if that. Oh and living in a motel....not sure i'd want a kid from that kind of gene pool. I'm sure the place is some kind of skid row motel and they used all the money they scammed for meth and cheap beer. Bet the room reeks of B.O. and stale smokes.

I used to let the adoptions go ahead of me when I did probate, because it always put the judge in a good mood, and it was easier to get him to sign things with less hassle.

Who seriously wants to adopt a baby? It's the ugliest, grossest and most annoying stage of the kid's life. Let someone else do it and adopt an adorable 3 year old.
