after visit to china, duggars consider adopting

Posted by   + Show Post
Did anyone see this this morning on the today show?

Anyone have a opinion on this?

If they adopt, it will make them 20 children.

I think adoption is a wonderful idea.

They are so shockingly selfish and self absorbed but because they shove a child at the camera, they are seen as giving and decent. I have huge amounts of pity for several of their kids as a couple made the mistake of thinking too much and trying to be individuals. Jinger (they call her their problem child) comes to mind and her inability to buy the crap being spread at the creationism museum.
It's easy to claim to a be a good parent when your children are the ones in charge of doing the actual raising, feeding, bathing, and clothing. The Dad just does discipline and mom isn't interested in anyone not on the tit anymore. That's the only reason they want to adopt, she wants to make it to twenty kids. Sad reason.

 Sure.  If they are kid crazy and have the love and resources they should go for it.

No adoption agency with half a brain will allow them to adopt. A requirement for adoption should be the ability to give the child some one on one time per day. Mrs. Duggar does not have time for her current children as is.

I wish they had adopted 15 of the first kids too.

I think any child would be very lucky to become a part of that family.

Better than birthing another one, IMO.

Meh, none of my business really. I think it's crazy they have the number of kids they already have, but whatever floats their boat. Probably better than birthing another one given the amount of health risks it would pose for mother and baby. Maybe they should look into adoption in the US though? There are many children in your country (and mine for that matter) who need a loving stable home, but again none of my business...
