Me and my husband have always wanted to adopt but maybe when our children were older but we could'nt help but look, and we fell in love with a boy, aged 8 & we were thinking of possibly adopting.
I have'nt told anyone but we met him 3 months ago and now he is allowed to come over to our's and he said he would love to live here and have me and Brian as his new parents, i feel so bad for his and i would love to give him a home and i spoke to his social worker and they said if we did want to then it would take about 4-8 months, but we don't want to wait. Of course i know they have to run all the procedures and we are both physically and mentally able to support him.

Apparently all i needed was your great advice, and I'm making the call to tell them i would like to adopt Jaden :D. He is a great little boy, and my hubby really would like to adopt him he just wanted my approvalbecause i am the one who needs to cope at home. So within a year we will have welcomed Jaden to the family if everything goes well. Just wondering because i already have 5 boys do YOU think it would be to many?

Before you do adopt this boy, and I think it would be a great thing to do, read some books about adoptee feelings toward their birth families. The best thing an adoptive parent can do if their adopted child wants to find his birth family is support him in that search. Search and reunion almost always streanthens the bond between the adoptee and his parents, but only if they are supportive. Yes he may get rejected again, but that's better than not knowing. Also collect whatever information you can about his birth father.

I already know everything about his birthparents, you see his father died when he was 1 and his mother only had kept him because his father had wanted him, his father seemed like a nice man but got involved in dangerous stuff and after that his mother could'nt cope so the story goes. His mother was said to have gone to live with family and the agency has no record to where. I hope that he does'nt want to but yes i will support him. And i think i have read as much as i can lol.
