Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

kasondra12Unborn Baby for Adoption

Hi my name is Kasondra I am 17 years old and about 5 months pregnant. I already have a little girl to take care of and I can not afford to take care of another child. I am looking for someone who would love to adopt my child. I am not sure if it is a boy or girl yet but I would like for my child to have a loving home. Please if you live in the P.A area and will still allow me to have contact with the child and will also sign papers saying you will let me see the child. Please contact me at Thank you. 3 years ago

I have always wanted to adopt a child, especially an african boy. He would have a mohawk and he’d wear nerd-glasses. He’d just be the shizz. 3 years ago

Christi McCoyI want a baby, preferably a boy but it really doesn't matter

I work for WalMart. Make Little money. But I have a GREAT heart and LOTS of love to give. I’m 43 and too old to get pregnant again. I have a 22 year old son, whom I love dearly. But I want a baby to nurture and watch grow into a fine young adult. I DO not have a lot of money but I DO have a LOT of love to offer. I am willing to adopt a child from any race, country or creed. Please give a woman a chance! A baby needs me somewhere. Please let me find him or her. If you are looking for a get rich quick by offering your child, please do not contact me. But if you are looking for a wonderful, loving home for your baby, please, contact me. My american phone is 913-839=1280 and my name is Christi. I am looking forward to the call from the baby momma of my dreams. 3 years ago


Ball is well and truly rolling now. Wife and I are going to be starting the prospective adopters preparation course in May. 3 years ago

mdd23Eventually anyway... Sometime in the future I'd like to adopt a child

Not anytime recent will I adopt, but I would actually like to eventually. For now, I am too young to adopt, (Funny how I am one of the Only 16 year olds who actually want a baby, but I am) so I will wait.

I have always wanted to have a baby boy; I am so tired of females, my house is full of them, and my mom claims to only like baby girls only (except for her son/my brother), but again, I am so sick of having a house full of nothing but girls…. I would love a baby boy to call my own, something different and exciting (ya know?).

If he had a name already, that would be okay, but if I had the chance to name him myself, well, I rather like the name (Though it’s considered ‘stupid’ or ‘weird’ by some) Django. It is my absolute favorite name.

This must sound pretty immature coming from someone as young as I, but I know that this is something that I really want. When my mother mentioned the idea of taking in children temporarily in foster care, like an aunt of hers used to do, I felt my self want to do the job, to care for and love a little child.

I very much doubt that I would sooner have a child of my own, so adoption would be welcomed, and I hope one day soon that I will be able to. 3 years ago

laurensteddy1988Hello everyone

This is really hard for me to do – i have not yet told anybody else about my plans or what i am thinking about doing – i desperately need some feedback and help!

My name is Lauren I am 23yrs old, I am 26 weeks pregnant and i thought this was the one thing i wanted in my whole life .. my partner , his name is lee he is also 23. i thought it was what he wanted too – he put the idea in my head in the first place we thought if we had a child we’d be happier and it would make us stronger.. lately he has been telling his best friend that he thinks he has made the biggest mistake of his life ,, i have tried to talk to him but he still assumes me hes fine with everytthing.. i dont want to bring a baby into this world that is not wanted.. i cant bring myself to tell people that i am pregnant . i am so ashamed i have done some terrible things in my life regarding pregnancies and i feel like i cant tell anybody because of these circumstances. I am scared and confused i thought this was what we both wanted…

I really hope someone out there can understand – im not a bad person i just want to do what is right.. and if that is putting my baby up for adoption for them to have a better life then so be it.. but please can someone give me some help and understanding.. i hope to hear from somebody soon x 3 years ago
