We have been trying to conceive a child for over 3 years but have had a hard time due to a few medical issues i have (PCOS and hypothyroidism, both of which have a chance to be passed on to any children i have). We have talked about adopting off and on, my husband asked which countries had simliar ethnic backgrounds to ours, because he wants to adopt a child that looks like it could be our birth child, i don't know if he wants to avoid nosy questions or what, but my question is it wrong to want to adopt a child that looks similiar to you or your DH/SOAnswer Question

No, there is nothing wrong with wanting your child to "blend" and not have to answer questions constantly, however it sounds like your husband may not have fully come to terms with your fertility problems. Which means that it might not be the right time to adopt until you explore this further.Just a thought sorry if it is not the case. Good luck with whatever God has in store for you.
