revelsunrise will adopt you mommyof1

Pasta are you adopting nixona?



since we have more oldbies than newbies doing this at the moment we'll just adopt one person each til all the oldbies are paired.

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

Well, I'm trying. I PMed him, but he hasn't responded yet. Sorry, I didn't want to take more than one, but I'm unsure about nixona.

I'll adopt someone, if there is anyone needing to be adopted. I'm in Ontario, Canada. I know I haven't been on as much as I'd like to be, but after exams next week I'll be on very frequently and will be glad to hopefully answer a newbie's questions or maybe establish a friendly relationship with him/her especially after exams.

Ooohhh somebody adopt me. I'm not a total newbie. . .I've been around on and off for a couple months, mostly lurking though. So if *sorta* newbies count, then somebody can adopt me.

for any oldbies unsure what to do once they've adopted someone, i figured we'd just introduce ourselves, ask if they have any questions about the site and/or veg*nism, and just be available if they need help with anything. at the same time if you like you can strike up a conversation, get to know each other etc. some good stuff to start out on would be to ask if they need help setting up a signature and avatar if they haven't yet.

Hi, I've been around here slightly longer than this thread, but I'm definately still a newbie. I would like to be adopted, please

If at all possible, I would really like to be adopted by a vegan/almost-vegan/someone-who-knows-a-lot-about-being-vegan, since I'm hoping to go vegan in the near future and might need some help.

I'm from England, if you need to know

Well hello isowish I am happy to adopt you!While I am not vegan(yet) I aspire to as well,and I have researched a lot about staying healthy on a vegetarian/vegan diet.I was pregnant when I stopped eating meat so I wanted to make sure I would be able to do it without harming myself or baby.So if you have any questions I might be able to help with fire away.

ooh! I would love to be adopted!



I am currently a lacto-ovo vegetarian and I'm planning on making the switch to veganism in about a week or so. If it's possible to pair me up with a vegan, that'd be great! Thanks!

did your adopters contact you Dovely and dumblonde0312 ?





looks like quite a few new members have joined the last few days. we still have lots of volunteers available to be paired up with new folks. any new members interested in having a veteran member show you around and be available to answer questions, post here or pm me



how's everyone who's been paired doing? any comments, questions, concerns?

Me too... I'd love to get adopted! I'm in Dallas, Texas if it matters any, and I surely don't have any veg support around me!



Just now off meat for a few weeks, but still battling the cheese addiction. Aspire to be vegan someday though!

I would love to be adopted - are there any folks who really are old - not just "oldies" tee hee? Because I'm an old newbie!!!

I'll adopt organicmechanic or Art Vandelay -- send me a pm. Sorry Poppy, but I think I'm a little young to be considered an old oldbie.

Although I'm not a newbie to being a vegetarian, I'd love to be adopted from someone who wants to show me the ropes of the board.
