  6. What do you mean as "medieval"? My MIL raised my stepson but she was unrelenting with him. She wouldn't allow the kid to go anywhere. Now that he lives at Thammasat, we can hardly get him home. He loves living on his own and has grown leaps and bounds from when he was under my MIL's strict hosuehold
  7. Anyone have any experience adopting children in Thailand I've been with my wife for 18 years, married for 12 1/2 years, we have my 19yr stepson I wouldn't mind adopting 2 or 3 kids but actually, my wife was approached by her brother's ex-gf They have 4 kids and the brother doesn't take care or help financially The ex-gf is a good kid, works hard but just can't afford 4 kids She asked my wife to take the youngest, 2 years old.
