Foster vs. Adoption

Hi there! I know that this is a naming site, but it seems like it’s also a place to get advice for everything. I’m currently in the process of adopting a child in the foster system. And I was wondering if there were any moms on here that have also done that or adopted at all that could give some advice on getting him more comfortable? He is 7 and has been in foster care sine he was 2. He’s name is Maxton James (he’s birth name) which we are going to keep. Thanks in advance! -Emily, Jase and Max :)

We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?

Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
