    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...

    Yes I do very much so - Not only had we thought

    about ..but we have adopted too. Granted it was something we had to think about for sometime, as adoption involves not just yourselves. But any children you may have already ..& of course your extended family members too. Ultimately I felt that it was the right thing for us...

    Dunno what the hang up with adoption is, it's no biggy, I was the result my natural mother was 17 & unmarried, this was frowned upon in society. Her pregnancy was a family secret, she was sent away to a expectant mother home, gave birth, I was taken into foster care & she went...

    Thinking About It...

    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...

    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...

    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 :)

    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.

    My mother adopted two pairs of siblings.

    Both are my cousins twins from NZ 16 and siblings (bro-sis) from the US 16 and 17. TBH i dont feel comfortable living with them and my dad hates it. But i understand my mum if thats what makes her happy and divert her attention from my cheating father then okay.

    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.

    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.

    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 think it take a lot of courage

    and a big heart to accept a child into your life. I know a lot of people bandy about this praise for parents of babies but It take a lot more to accept a child who isn't even yours and give them a home. Most of these children come from bad backgrounds and to open up your home...

    Given my personal experience with the subject,
