I am interested in adopting a baby (prob from china, since I want a girl anyway). I own my own home, it is a 3 bed townhome but I have it completely paid off. I have the money to adopt and still have a nice amount save. I am set in my career and I want a child. Some people in my life support this but others don't. Why? because I am 21 and I am single. I can provide a good home, with everything a child needs. I work from home, so child care is not an issue. Some are saying that it is not fair because the child won't have a father unless or until a get married. The child that I adopt currently doesn't have a father OR a mother. I have gone to an angency, they have done a home study and said that we can start looking whenever. Am I being selfish?

Next question overall
Is anyone else angry at how the media has represented birth?
