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 :)

Genie's Mailbag

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
