Are you able to pick a kid?
We've gone pretty far down the road on adoption, and there's no short answer. It is often very expensive, and it is often a long process, but there's more than one way to skin a cat. Happy to chat with you about it if you want.

Not sure on the king shocks. I'd be scared I'd be stuck with them for awhile. But if anyone else wanted to pick them up for their ride I'd be more then willing to rebuild them for you for free + cost of parts which would most likely be less then $20 unless they were really trashed but still less then $50. Heck, if you wanted to do it and learn yourself I could show you how. I even picked up a nitrogen tank this weekend so I can even charge them now.

Here's the thing. We would want the kid to kind of look like us. Unless we start looking overseas, it would be difficult to find a half Asian kid. That might be cultural. For the most part, Asians have a strong family connection. It's doubtful there are many giving up their kids here in the US.

It's something we just started discussing since it doesn't look like it'll happen on it's own. Before we were married, we decided that we didn't want kids because we were both so consumed with our careers. As we got older, we decided we were wrong.

What really annoys me is when I see people that aren't good parents with multiple kids or when I hear about women who use abortion as contraception. We're good people. We should have kids. Bad parents seem to pop them out without thought or consideration. We just want one.

I have a cousin in the Philippines who is an immigration attorney. He might be able to point me in the right direction. I think our chances of finding a kid that looks like us would be better overseas.

I have some PEP ATV shocks I need rebuilt. I would of course be willing to pay cash, beer, etc.

How else do you think brangelina would be able to adopt? Overseas, because the US knows they would eff up our kids!

They seem to display their kids like accessories to outfits. Gotta admit though, those are some lucky kids. They won the adoption lottery with those parents.

You want one that looks like this


That's my little mix breed after catching his trout this last weekend. Flip and white.

Your kid looks good at math.

Where was that? I was just talking to Powr about getting a fishing trip together.

Utah just south of Duck Creek Village. It's a private pond though. Best fishing is Mirror Lake and Navajo Lake in the same area.
Math is his favorite subject in school. LOL

Well, I've never done heroin but I guess there's a first for everything! LOL

I'll have to look at those shocks online. I've heard of them... For the most part every shock, truck, dirt bike, etc has been pretty much the same. I've done quite a few different forks. In fact I just did my first set of harley forks about 3 weeks ago. Funny how basic those are compared to dirt bikes! But shocks are all pretty similar but do have their own little nuances I guess you could say. Let me do a little searching and see what I can find out about Pep shocks and if they look like something I'd be familiar with tackling let's do it. (not that ysb!) You'll probably be amazed how easy it is and if you've ever paid someone to rebuild them you'll be pissed! LOL I know I was the first time I finally just said screw it and tore into a set myself! I felt ripped off I'd ever paid someone to do it.
