To even consider adoption? We have four bio kids, but I have always wanted to adopt a child - since I knew about the concept of adoption when I was a child. Dh wasn't on board, so I shelved the idea as something to maybe revisit later or something that wasn't for me after all. In the past couple years Dh has become very open to the idea of adoption -- both of us have agreed that we'd enjoy adopting young siblings if we could. He primarily wants to focus on domestic - my heart was for international, but I'm open to the possibility of domestic adoption or foster-adopt.
I'm just not sure if this is ridiculous. We make enough to live well without public assistance, but we are by no means well off. We already have four small children and aren't actively preventing future pgcies.
I just keep coming back to this, over and over, and it feels so right for us. But is it foolish? Something I should forget about, or wait a few years?

No not at all, but I say adopt from here. We have so many children right here in foster care waiting for a home.
