Q: 

How do you, adoptive parents, deal with this?

A:  You have some really good answers already. I would say something like, ''It is true that I didn''t give birth to you, but I am doing the best I can to raise you. I really love you and I am really responsible for you. The relationship we have is real.'' Maybe followed with, ''How do you think your other mother would handle this?'' and see what they say. If they said something like ''She would understand me and you don''t,'' then I would ask them to help me understand and empathize with the confusion and hurt they are feeling. But if they said something like ''My real mother would let me eat all the candy I want,'' then I would disagree and assert my authority to make those decisions. That''s a tough one..one I must admit to throwing at my adoptive mom a time or two,...

Q: 

How do I get the best "deal" when joining the army?

A:  Your recruiter must not have talked to you that long if you''re asking these questions. His fault, not yours. Yes, your MOS can be guaranteed in writing before you sign your contract. The Army does not offer ''open contracts'' like some other branches. You will know your ship date, your MOS, your bonus (if one is being offered for your MOS), and your end of service date before you sign your contract. After you complete the ASVAB the recruiter can show you on their computer what jobs are currently open and reserve it for you before you go to MEPS to join. If you don''t see one you want you can still go to MEPS and see what the guidance counselors offer you (they have more pull than the recruiter) and if you still don''t see what you want you can come back another...

Q: 

How do you changed ur childs last name when ur not with the dad and never married him and now ur married

A:  I'm so sorry, but legally there is nothing you can do to change their name without permission from the fathers and a court order. If it was a case of them being abused by the fathers then you could petition the court to take their parental rights away, but short of that, I don't know of any other way. Do the fathers have visitation? If not, you could try to petition the court and explain that the fathers have no interest in the children and you want sole custody. You can also point out to the the fathers, if you haven't already, that if your husband is allowed to adopt them then they wouldn't have to pay any more child support. The only other thing I can think of is that you would have to wait until...

Q: 

What equipment do you get issued when you join the australian defence force(ADF)?

A:  The gear issued on initial entry is the same, regardless of what job you''re going into and whether or not you''re going into the regulars or the reserves (although reservists get a smaller entitlement to boots and spare uniforms). You''re looking at getting boots, uniforms, a jacket, wet weather gear, a trunk, a bush hat, two slouch hats, a sleeping bag, a hootchie to sleep under, a field pack, a day pack, crap running shoes, socks, PT gear, harness webbing, water bottles, and an assortment of random field tools you''ll never use. And then any further kit after that is issued to you depending on your job and unit - obviously, only paratroopers are going to get parachute smocks, craftsmen are going to get appropriate working clothes, Officers will get swords to carry on ceremonial parades,...

Q: 

What is the first thing you do when you join the army?

A:  Hello Does IT Matter... Signing the papers means nothing. What is the important thing is when you raise your right hand and an officer administers the Oath of Enlistment. THEN and only then are you IN the military. The next thing you do is Keep your Mouth shut and line up as you are told to do. You will be given a large brown envelope with your papers. It will be sealed. You are NOT to open it. Then, you are told about your transportation to basic training. Usually, you are given an airplane ticket along with the others who just enlisted in your area at the MEPS. You go home and pack and go to the airport with your parents to say good bye. Then you get on the plane and when you arrive you will be met by a military bus. You will be given orders to get on the bus, sit down, keep quiet, and...

Q: 

How do you take a case to civil court?

A:  Well, I sincerely hope that you have written documentation of each and every time you requested a repair and it went ignored. Otherwise, these ''after-the-fact'' complaints of them being bad landlords is just hearsay. If you learn something from this whole experience, learn this. When dealing with landlords, always assume they are trying to screw you. That means, each time you request a repair, write a letter and send it by certified mail with a return receipt. It will cost you close to $6.00 each time, but you will have a green card that is proof in court that they received your repair requests and they went unanswered. You will also have a copy of the letter you wrote. Everything in life is how much you can prove because people are not out to help you. Especially...

Q: 

What happens if you join the army when there is no war going on?

A:  Well if that''s the case you will spend a lot of time training for the next one. Just because there is no war it doesn''t mean that soldiers man the meals on wheels trucks. The Armed Forces have to be ready just in case. Good luck to you It depends on how you join. (active, reserve, or national guard) It also depends on your MOS. Most of my friends who were in when there was no war going on got shipped to places like Germany. As you can see, there are lots of places the Army can send you. Overseas Belgium U.S. Army Garrison - Brussels USAG BENELUX/SHAPE-Chievres Germany Ansbach, United States Army Garrison Bamberg, United States Army Garrison Baumholder, United States Army Garrison Garmisch, United States Army Garrison Grafenwoehr (Vilseck), United States Army...

Q: 

What adoption question do you hate the most?

A:  Mine are - in random order, with lots of sarcasm... Is there someone out there who wants to put their baby up for adoption? Because me and my husband have been married for 3 years, we have lots of money, a big house, and I just want to be a mother so desperately. Any baby, please! Just make it a girl with long, blond, curly hair and freckles. She has to be gifted in math and be a piano phenom. Please, she can''t have any tantrums. I don''t like tantrums. But, please, please, please I just have so much love to give a child. Any child. Newborns only. (YUCK!) How can I adopt my boyfriend''s baby? How can my boyfriend adopt my baby? (UM - ever heard of marriage? And - this baby already has a biological parent. Can''t shove them out of the picture) Can I put my baby up for adoption without the...

Q: 

How do i get the other parties insurance to pay.My truck was borrowed at the time of accident&was not at fault?

A:  You contact his insurance company and file a claim. They will do an investigation to determine fault. That can be something as simple as talking to both drivers. If their driver admits to running a red light- it''s easy. Once they complete their investigation - if they determine their driver as at fault: If your truck is repairable, they will write an estimate to repair the truck and pay that amount. Usually they will pay the daily rate/tax for a rental car. They do not pay for damage waivers or insurance. They will pay for a rental during the reasonable repair time of your vehicle. If the truck is not repairable, they will deem the vehicle a total loss and will pay the actual cash value of your damaged truck. They will usually provide a rental car for a short period of time. In most...

Q: 

Police Officers: How do you deal with enforcing laws that you don''t agree with?

A:  Well, here, if you don''t agree with one and you have some discretion, then it is up to you. Like with drugs, do I charge them, make their life hell or just have them dump it on the side of the road and I go easy on them? But with something as serious as VIP protection, you have to forget about who it is you are protecting and remember, this is your job. Look at our Secret Service, if you are a conservative Republican, chances are you dislike Obama, but if you are on his detail, you better be ready and willing to take a bullet for him. Another thing, is could you just request a transfer? I mean, I don''t like Obama, but I wouldn''t want the President of the US shot and killed, especially on my watch, so yeah, if it meant taking one center mass for the guy, you bet I would. If you think it...
