  • My mom adopted after she could only have me and I always think of her as my brothers and sisters hero....she saved them from possibly a VERY long time bouncing from foster home to foster home (they are all drug babies, one is blind and they all have some kind of behavioral problem in their past) I would definatly adopt...I think there is nothing in the world you can do that is as selfless as adopting a child without a family. Good luck mama and feel free to message me if you have any questions (I can ask my mama lol) or if you just want to talk

  • Yes I would. I actually told my fiance if by baby number 3 we have no girls, we will be adopting a girl.

  • I did consider it but was afraid we'd adopt then get pregnant. Didn't adopt but I am pregnant after 9 yrs of infertility. Didn't use drugs either.

  • Everything any child is looking for in a mother is someone who will love the child no matter what. Guide with love and kindness, accept abilities and limitations, and have patience with their development.

    Women who are looking for someone to love them need to look in the mirror... but women who are looking for someone to love understand the first requirement of motherhood.

  • That was my life plan just to adopt but now I'm pregnant. Maybe after I get established w this one. I really want to adopt one day!
