So many children need homes in this country.  Thousands and thousands and thousands. 


Have you adopted a child?  If not, why not?

No. Maybe later in life we will foster, we have discussed that. But our children are young and we don't have the time, resources, or desire right now.

Nope and I never will.    I had one child, that is all I wanted and all I will ever have.  He is an adult and my child raising days are long behind me and I have no plans to revisit them.

Us no but 3 of my neighbors on my street have.  One adopted their last child from Africa.  She was 5.  

One adopted all 3 of their kids.  She couldn't have kids.  2 from the US, one from Russia

3rd thought she couldn't carry any to term so they adopted their 2 oldest and finally carried their 3rd to term.
