Then why on Earth would you (OP) want to incur another, costly expense? I get it, the whole parent thing, but also consider that if you're struggling
now...how will it be with the adopted child? Perhaps foster care? (then at least you get some $$$ for it as well as parenthood). Ever check into
getting your record expunged?

I think it is costly not to have a child!
my mother is in hospital for the rest of her life, if not for me who would take care of her
who will take care of us
we are getting old to start a familly, but we bein trying for over 15 years the natural way, with no luck!
The money is not to tight, we both work, but like every one we can not seem to be able to put some aside.
expunge my record.. did do all the leg work, it cost me about 400$ for all the paper work and police check.
did all that, and when i got another paper asking for another 600$ within 10 days or some thing like that.
i got mad and said f#u, did not have any money to spare that month.
I had 3 beers 20 years ago, when drinking and driving first started to be serious..
Just seems unfair.
You see i can live without child.. but the wife is having depression about it. you know their internal clock!!
to be a foster home, we need also to accept a child with a heavy past...
we thot that with the millions of orphans we woul not have all the trouble that we are getting.
you see if the people at child services would check my life, as they surely would.
than they could see that we live a good life. i do not drink. repeat i do not drink ever...
It would seem that they have other plans for those children...
