Mayte Adopting A Little Girl!!!

I have just been watching Home & Family on the Hallmark Channel( through the wonders of online live streaming TV) as Mayte was a guest on there today(She notified us fans on her Facebook page), and she made an announcement that she is in the process of adopting a little girl!! She would make an awesome mother and she deserves happiness after the devasting death of the baby which she is still coming to terms with 16/17 years later!!

I am so happy for her!!! biggrin biggrin biggrin

That´s good news and good for her. I wonder why she doesn´t just get pregnant, but adopting is also fine or probably even better.

I saw her on Maxwell´s FB page the other day, he took a picture with her.

Aww thats wonderful touched

There some Prince associates who I've always secretly wished happiness for:
Vanity, Mayte and Bria...

Especially Mayte as she was with P so young I wandered whether she was actually able to move on from her experiences with him. Her adopting a child is the best news as it signals that she has moved on.

So happy for her!! party she will be an amazing mother.

One minute they want peace……

Then do everything to make it go away. rolleyes

Because she isn't like Kim Kardashian and many more of her kind of today, having babies out of Wedlock!

I don't get why her mom was so unsupportive of adoption.
Even if she doesn't like the idea of raising a non-blood related child, it's HER blood child (Mayte) who is deciding to adopt, and she should support her daughter in this commendable and difficult life decision.
Oh well, this is the same woman who "waved her daughter under Prince's nose" (to quote another org'er, was it Genesia?), so I guess I shouldn't expect her to behave in her daughters best interest over her own desires...

I think she made a good choice! She may decide for adoption for many reasons, but that's what I always thought I would do if I were in the same situation. It's different from having your own one, since this child will come with a history behind him/her. But it's really like giving a second chance to yourself and the child at the same time... Like trying to heal both scars, knowing you can't ever forget them, but you can try to grow them into something good. I don't know if it makes sense...? A girl I know lost her 3rd baby right before birth, and then she adopted a little girl with down syndrome. She just didn't want a "substitute" for the child she lost, she wanted to give a chance to someone who, like her, have lost for good something as precious as a mother-child blood relationship. I always thought that was brave and generous. It turned out good for them, I wish Mayte the same!

Yeah, I said that. redface lol

Mayte's mom has always struck me as a vicarious fame whore.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

Maybe she can't get pregnant on her own, did u ever stop to consider that? That's why P and her broke up, he wanted more kids and the doc probably told her that there would be too much of a risk.

Good for her!

I had an acqaintance that went through an experience similar to hers, and when she was finally able to become a mom again it really added great, great joy to her life. Wishing her all the best on this new journey

Now as for that show....I have to give Mama Nelly the side eye for initial reaction to her daughter's decision, Big Mama's comments were heartless...and the reaction of certain castmates on the show treating a grown woman like she's a child herself, underestimating her abilty to be a mom? Some of those chicks seriously need to take a few 'Gurl-go-sit-down-and-shut-up' pills. For however it was intened for some of those scenes on the show to come across from some of her 'girlfriends,' they reeked of passive agressive negativity confused

Getting pregnant and adopting are two different paths (altough in both case a family is born). She may have her reasons to prefer adopting, which are not necessarily related to the impossibility to have another baby of her own. In fact, from what we know, there's no reason why it should be impossible for her (or prince) to have kids. I think these are just personal choices, and unless they choose to share, we are not going to know their reasons.

After what happened, maybe she just did not want to risk going thru it all over again. I would guess that it's one of those things where unless you've gone thru it yourself, you'll never really understand.

I'm happy for her smile

ook, so does that mean she's married? No. She and Kim are supposedly friends. Why bash Kim? Either way, both reports, they're happy. :ballons:

^^How do you know her name?
Glad to see Mayte's mom came around - someone who loves animals so much ought to love a cutie baby too!
I agree with Drea with Jessica ought to be more supportive, especially at the moment a friend introduces the baby to you - just say "congrats" and keep your advice and concerns for a more appropriate time.
But I do have the same concern that open adoption could be problematic if the mom changes her mind or wants a bigger role in the child's life or undermines the child's relationship with Mayte. On the other hand, I heard a piece on NPR about open adoption and sometimes it works out really wonderfully, and it could be great for Mayte as a single mom to have the "extended family" of the birth mother.

I felt REALLY bad for her when she mentioned that she knows what it feels like to have to pack away baby clothes (without using them) - I hadn't thought about that. She (and he) had to pack away the clothes, take down the nursery, get rid of the stroller and car seat... It must have been so painful and sad.
