I Admire People Who Adopt Children

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,763 People

    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...

    I have an older sister

    who cannot have children due to female problems. She and her husband have adopted three small kids. Their adopted kids are 2 boys and 2 girls. The children seem to be working out in their new home.

    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.

    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...

    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 have adopted three boys

    and I have three boys of my own. I admire others who have adopted kids of their own. It is such a blessing to be a parent the natural or adoption way.

    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 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 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 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.

    Those parents who adopt kids are really to be

    admired. It is not easy to deal with the rude remarks some people make about them. The real difficult part comes when they tell their kids that they are adopted. How the child reacts to this news is something they have to live with.
