    A Remarkable Couple

    I know a couple who have 4 (or is it 5) biological sons, still in capable child bearing years, devout Catholics, and adoptive parents of 2 beautiful little girls from Nicaragua. This couple decided they wanted to have a girl. They decided not to wait on nature to 'possibly' give...

    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.

    My wife and I just got back from the beginning

    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 commend those who decide to adopt children!

    Sometimes these adoptions occur when a couple cannot have a child of their own. Still others adopt in addition to their own biological children thus creating a safe haven for children that might have otherwise had a miserable life. While there are differing reasons behind...

    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...

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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...
