    Its So Necessery...

    It disgusts me that so many people are against civil partnerships and gay adoption. Think of how many children which could be adopted by a loving family every year... just because they have two dads or two mums should not matter. Why deny a child a family just because 'Jesus...

    I do admire people who adopt children.

    There are so many children in the foster system that need good homes to, and people who open those homes up to, are good people in my book.

    Absolutely. People who go into fostering

    and adoption are the most increadibly patient and understanding people. To be able to cope with your own fears and troubles is one thing. But to take in a youngster who is so often still so angry at whatever lead them to this position. So frustrated at not being able to express...

    I Want More Children

    I want more children but it isn't logical. it isn't strategically financially realistic. But I still want more. I feel I was supposed to have 6 children. We stopped at 4. Some of our children has disabilities and we can barely feed the ones we have. It is selfish to want more...

    My husband is adopted by two people

    for who adore him. I see the love for him. I wonder where he would be today if he had not been adopted. We would have not met or a future together. They gave me the most remarkable man, their son.

    People think I'm weird, because I'm always talking about adopting kids rather than birthing my own. Don't get me wrong, I do want to have my own kids, but I wouldn't have a problem adopting another child either. I love kids and tt wouldn't matter to me like it would some if he...

    I have great admiration

    and respect for people who adopt children. There are so many children on this earth who need parents, and to be loved. I plan to adopt children when I'm older, or be a foster parent to children. I have a lot of love to give, so I shall give it :)

    Thank You To All Parents Who Adopted Or Going To Adopt Children.

    Children is our future. They are little miracle of life and we should treasure and love them always. I had been blessed that I had a baby girl who is my life. She is my own fresh and blood. Here to the Adopted parents around the world.

    I really do admire people who adopt. The strength and passion it takes to take another person's child on is something i can only imagine. I would love to do it also but it's all the other things to consider. How will the child adapt to your life? Will it accept you? If it's a...

    They Realize Love Is Thicker Than Blood

    They realize loving a child does not require a biological connection. I kind of consider step-parents that raise their spouse's children like adoptive parents too.

    I have this theory that

    if everyone would stop making new kids, and instead adopt all those millions and millions of children out there in desperate need of better lives, (and futures), we could have a world without extremely poor children in one generation.

    Given my personal experience with the subject,

    I can definitely say that adopted children are part of the family, but I really admire people who put that much work into giving a child a home and a better life rather than spending all that money to have their own. People think they can only love their own child and even...
