Those people make me want to puke.
They don't even have time for the kids they have now the older siblings pretty much are raising the younger ones.
From a crowded orphanage to the Duggar home...the adopted children will think they never left China. Hahaha!
Ok bad joke. Anyway, in theory I think adopting is a wonderful, selfless choice. And I can't deny that a loving home with lots of meaningful interaction (even if it is more from siblings than the parents) would be better than an orphanage. But specific to the Duggars, I do find the idea to be a bit silly and I absolutely disagree with the way in which they raise their kids. And I'm not even referring to their religion or the homeschooling. I have a big problem with the "buddy system" they use to raise their kids. I see nothing wrong with a family that all pitches in. Indeed, I babysat my siblings quite a bit growing up. But their older children literally do all childcare for their younger ones, including tiny babies. And I don't agree with that. Their older chlidren are not their hired help.
Hells yeah! Best souvenir EVER!
They have the money to support them, a lot of love to give, strong moral and community values and a strong and suppotive extended family. All the things I think an adoptive family should have.
There is something wrong with these people. While I think adoption is a wonderful thing, they have a bazillion children now. They are middle-aged. They are grandparents. This is like some weird hoarding, OCD thing with them - collecting children. They need to stop. I hope they aren't able to adopt. Maybe they can collect dolls or something.

I know this is sarcastic or a joke, but as someone that has adopted from China..this is really bothering me.. my daughter is not a souvenir. I would hate for her to see this comment...it would truly hurt her that people think this way.

I think its wonderful. They are an awesome family with tons of love to give. I thought it was harder to adopt from China these days.
