A friend of mine has 3 kids- one adopted from overseas, two of their own. they are now wanting to adopt again. I am excited for them as they are great parents.

The thing is, they keep doing fundraisers. They have a "gofunme.org" site, an auction, and keep filling up my FB newsfeed with fundraisers. Is that weird to do such public fundraising to adopt?

They're having a fundraiser to gain funds to adopt or are they donating to an orphanage?

I'm not very knowledgeable with the adoption process, but I would think that if they didn't have the funds to adopt without financial assistance then they should wait.

I know it costs a lot for forms and all (plus plane tickets to wherever they adopt from)...I just don't understand it. Like, I don't ask my friends to pay for my hospital bills when I give birth.....

It can cost tens of thousands of dollars to adopt. I have no issue with someone fundraising to get a child a forever home
