  • Thanks but I want to do overseas adoption. I have thought about foster care though but it wouldn't be for me.

  • Why overseas? You do NOT have to do foster care to adopt in the USA. There are many families that are adopt only.

  • It is not easy for people in general to adopt in this country, but especially single people. In Arkansas, they came up with a law that single people couldn't adopt (it was just a way for gay people to not be adopted). Some states might not allow it. I think it's being overturned here, but not sure.
