I Admire People Who Adopt Children

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,226 People

    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 Dont

    I was adopted and I resent my dad for it. He adopted me to have a child before my uncle, he adopted me to get in the news paper and on tv, he adopted me to prove a point. Yes, growing up I got whatever I wanted, never got grounded cause he couldn't ground me cause he was never...

    I really adore people

    who adopt children. I was adopted at the early age of 6 months. The couple that adopted me were unable to have children of their own. Since adopting me, they have adopted 4 more children. I have 3 brothers and a sister with this family. I have been well taken care of along...

    These people are some of society's greatest

    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 especially admire people

    who adopt children from orphanages here in America. It annoys me when people act like they need to go to Africa or China to adopt....that's great and all....but there are plenty of children here in our country that need homes and families! Just curios....has anyone ever heard...

    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...

    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 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 :)

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.
