Some of the pros and cons of adopting from the foster system, there are several hundred. I would say the most prevalent is if the child still has visits with his or her birth family. That can be very confusing and upsetting for the child, as it is for the other families. Always the key element is to try and make the transition as smooth as you possibly can because it is really what it's all about, the child. The pros can be if the birth family is cooperative, they can be very insightful and helpful, in terms of giving you history about your child. That can always be great. I think the best situation for everybody is if the parents rights have been terminated and they are free and clear of any sort of visitation with that family and they become yours. Then there is not confusion. Then you have a whole other set of circumstance you have to work on. They don't really trust anybody, especially if they are older and they've been exposed to so much.

Adoptive Mom

Stacy Earl broke onto the music scene with RCA and her self-titled album, STACY EARL. The album delivered three top ten singles, “Love Me All Up,” “Romeo & Juliet” and “Slowly.” The first single, “Love Me All Up,” jumped 27 points on the Billboard Hot 100 in its second week on the chart. The follow-up, “Romeo And Juliet” was the most added single in America – a first ever for a new female artist. In Japan, the record was second only to Michael Jackson. With a multi-octave voice that transcends the merely technical, with a heart-stopping blend of youthful innocence and worldly sophistication, Stacy brings an unmistakable signature to every song she sings. The New York Daily News compared Stacy to Bessie Smith and Dinah Washington in her “breathy, understated style that projects a subdued, yet driving sensual energy that is always classy and never crude.” Interview Magazine described Stacy’s demeanor as “blissing out on R&B ballads, pop, and bubble-funk”. It called the debut album “optimistic and seductive”, and added that “Stacy Earl runs on smile power.”
