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.

- The Robots.

dannyoooI'm adopted, from S. Korea.

Hey all,

My parents adopted 5 kids from south Korea, and 1 from the USA. My advice would be, if you are looking to adopt internationally, that you go and find some adults that are from that country and get to know them! You aren’t signing up to be a parent of just a baby, but also of a fully grown person that will, without doubt, be different from you in some ways. Now I’m not trying to focus on the differences, but let’s say you’re black and you adopt an asian child. They will eventually wonder why they are different, and if you can relate to them in those ways, i’d say you’re on the right track to successfully building your family in this way. 20 months ago

eclectic passionJust wondering...

If these 3 things are prerequisites for all adoption:

1) being married
2) being unable to have children yourself
3) living in the country where you want to adopt.

If it’s just 1 and 3, I can deal with that. I’ve always loved the idea of adoption but am perfectly capable (as far as I know) of having children myself, however I’m too scared to give birth and would strongly prefer to adopt. Does anyone know? 2 years ago
