Hey chica, i understand how wierd this is for you. You're uncomftorable with such a HUGE change. You sound like a great girl. You can get through this. If my parents told me they might adopt, I'd be freaking out. But, think about it this way. You're parents are willing to take another child into their lives to feed, clothe, and house. Alll of this, but the greatest thing they'll be doing is making another kid's life better. If they're willing to do that, you should to. Tell your heart the truth. You can get do it!

i think my older sis is anorexic.and im also angry because shes always been thin, even wen she did eat, and ive always been the bigger one, the uglier one, the one who doesnt get any guys, and it seems as if im more confident than HER, and theres been countless times ive cried myself to sleep becuz of tht, but i wood NEVER become anerexic just cuz ive gained a lil weight, also, my sis has (or had) depression, n wen she was 13 or 14 she started cutting, and i think she stopped, and now shes 16, shes gorgeous, shes thin, she has big boobs, and a hot bf, and SHES anorexic, im just so angry, sad, confused, worried, idk to break down and cry or scream in her face and knock her out, what am i supposed to do?!?!?
Hey girly! It sounds like you have a really good head on your shoulders, which I'm very glad to hear. As for your sister, though, you definitely need to talk an adult about this and let them know what's going on with her. Try talking to your parents about it. Show them the site and let them know how worried you are. If you can't talk to them, I'd talk to an aunt or uncle, a grandparents, or even a friend's parent that you trust. Also, guidance counselors at school would know what to do. The bottom line is, your sister needs help before this gets any worse.

Hey, girlie. I totally know how you're feeling right now. My family did foster care for about four years before we adopted my eight-year-old sister. I'm not going to lie, it was hard getting used to having another sibling besides my brother, and having to share my parents attention between 3 people, but it got easier. So whatever your parents decide, hang in there. It will all work out.

My mom said that once. But she said that she's adopting a child once we all leave the house.

I have 3 little brothers, and one older sister, and two of my little brothers are adopted from Ukraine. Their names are Max, and JT and they both have Down Syndrome. They've been home since Christmas 2009 (Almost 3 years now!!) and they are sooooo amazing!
In some countries, children with special needs get put into an adult mental institution at the age of four if they have not been adopted, and die within a year from lack of food, water, and exercise. It's really heartbreaking!! But, that's not my point here.
My point is, adoption is a great thing. It's giving a child a life outside of an orphange, or foster home. I think you are worried about change in your life? Change can be a great thing. Especially in adoption. My favorite quote about adoption- "Adopting one child won't change the world, but for that child, the world will change." Try to be open minded. It'll be just like your mom having a baby, except the "baby" will probably be a little older.
