  • Of course...we plan on having 1 less than the number we want and then adopting. We really want to adopt because my SIL is adopted and we are so grateful for her! DH and I would love to help take in a child that needs a loving home. We also want to adopt from overseas, possibly Russia (where his sister is from). She is starting to get to that age where she really wants to have some common ground (she always knew she was adopted but she is a tween and knows now that she is VERY different from her family), we would like her to have someone in her family with the same heritage at least.

  • I have adopted and love it every day of my life.. Just knowing what my little man has went through and look at him now he is so happy and thriving.. Love is what makes a home not blood.

  • Maybe...but not a baby...if I were to adopt, it would be a child that isn't likely to easily find a home.
