Where is Everybody?
« Reply #10 on: 17/05/20, 12:42 »
The forum was originally set up by a couple who went through a infertility and adoption journey themselves, in the end the forum was too much for them to run, it was pretty much a 24/7 job so they sold it to a Canadian company who have basically don't really give a toss about the forum so most people have left and gone elsewhere, such a shame as it used to be such a great place for support

    That's so sad
    I love this forum.
    I wouldn't have my miracle boy if it wasn't for this place and the support i had here over the yrs.
    I hope things pick up again.
    social media groups aren't for me as their too identifiable

    I think it has a lot to do with current circumstances, last year, although obviously Iím not sure about this part of the site, it was going full steam ahead, I actually like this site more now itís been sold as before it was way to heavily moderated when IMO it didnít need to be, itís not so much now and everything still flows just as smoothly as before.  :)

    K jade, I agree, I am not part of any social media groups as I prefer to be anonymous.

    Stacey, unless people are spamming the site with illegal stuff I think everyone just gets on with it now.

    Hi all,

    I'm new here. Hubby and I are on stage one of the adoption process following an IVF journey.

    Where are you in the process?

    Hi myself and my other half started the process but werenít able to proceed due him (us) having large snakes in the house. Anyways heís suggested building a garage and moving them outside so weíre currently waiting to see if thatís an option 🤞🏼  Although I reckon weíll be told no again

    Hi everyone, I'm posting here as it seems to be the only thread that's been active relatively recently.  I can see that there's a section on the main board for research questions but it hasn't been active for a long time so am posting here, if this is not ok please remove.

    I was a regular member of this forum during my own infertility struggles - happily my journey ended positively with parenthood coming to me through adoption. 

    I am currently undertaking my Masters in Social Work and am investigating approaches to post-adoption contact for my dissertation topic; ethical approval has been granted by the university's School of Ethics.

    If any of you who are parents through adoption (be this solely with adopted children, or with birth children also) are interested in taking part in this study then please do contact me; the expectation on you will be just one Zoom/Skype/Teams video call, or of course a telephone call if you prefer to protect your anonymity.  Interviews will not take more than one hour of your time.  I anticipate conducting these interviews as soon as practically possible for people but, ideally, will have finalised them by mid January 2021.

    Please do get in touch, I would be really interested to hear the views of others.

    Keep safe everyone.
