  • yes!!! I really want to adopt from foster care, an older child. DH will never go for it though since we tried to adopt my cousin from foster care & they screwed us over. So sad because I would love to!

  • I would too! I have 3 adopted cousins and i've seen how well their lives have turned out...i've always wanted to help a child like they were.

  • If I had enough money to and the means to provide for them, then absolutely! I think every child deserves to have a real place to call home.

  • i used to want to adopt a child just because.
    but not any more. i raise my stepson and my adopted little brother (who i am now adopting as my son) and still don't have a child of my own.

  • YES!!!
    I'm adopted myself and I know so little about my background such as cancers and heart issues. Does my bio mom carry her weight like I do? What drugs and how much alcohol did she really consume when pregnant with me?? My step son was adopted by my hubs so he is OK with it for sure especially if we could get a girl!!!

  • Definitely!

    Really, my plan is if I ever win the lottery, I want a big house and be a foster parent. I hate hearing about the older kids who never get adopted, go from foster home to foster home only to end up out of the system .

  • Yes! I actually have that in my life plan. Hopefully once things get better with my career and I can get established somewhere. My husband and I would like to try for a biological boy, since we have two daughters already. Regardless of if we have a boy later or another girl, we would still like to adopt. Later in life, I would like to adopt a little boy, between the ages of 7 and 10. I just want to make a difference in the life of a kid. I know what it is like to not have parents. So that's what I would like to eventually do. :)

  • i almost adopted a little boy "ethan" when i was 18 years old. he was in the "babies home" in uganda, and i used to go see him whenever i could... i still wonder what he looks like now, if he was ever adopted, if he gets to go to school.

  • I had always wanted to be a foster parent when I was younger and living in a foster home. I swore that I would treat every child who entered my home as if they were my home and they would be entered into all aspects of the family, including making decisions and being allowed to go places.
    I never thought of adopting because the foster care system is so backlogged and there are so many needy kids who are being abused and losing parents that they need immediate love.
    Unfortunately, I was never in a financial position to own a home or rent an apartment large enough to afford foster children.
