    Post Would you be willing to adopt?

    This isn't a question of whether or not you'd adopt a child of a different race, and I'm not talking of it as an alternative to having your own children, so please no answers of that sort.

    Just, would you be willing to adopt a child. Whether yes, no, or not sure, please explain your reasoning.

    I'm going to hold back from posting my answer until later. But the idea for this thread just popped into my head from another discussion I had not too long ago, and I wanted to post it before I visited my brother and forgot it.

    EDIT - "an alternative to having your own children" is bad wording... When I come back, I'll have to explain that a bit more when I come back. Basically, though, I just don't want an answer simply say, "Why Adopt when I can have my own?" or some such.

    Yes, I would adopt a child. This may sound a bit naive, but if by my adopting a child could change a woman's mind about not aborting it, for reasons other than medical, rape or incest, then I would. Not to mention I love children, and think that they should all be given a half decent start.

    No, I would like to raise my own children, not someone elses.

    I have two children and want more, but yes, I would still be willing to adopt. One hinderance (In my opinon), is that adoptions are often expensive. Often people are unable to spend thousands of dollars to adopt a child. Another thing is that many people want babies and there are far more older children available for adoption than infants. I am exhausted and cannot think or else, I would give you many many other things to consider on the topic of adoption.

    Yea, I used to make bad jokes in the office about "adopting" attractive women who were one or two generations younger than myself, telling them that after the "adoption" they would have to call me "uncle" so as not to arouse suspicion. If I were to do this now I would be sued.

    Any chance you could elaborate a little bit more? Or did you decide on that first issue alone?

    The only kids I would want to raise are my own biological children so I could continue building the family.

    I would find it very diffucult to treat an adopted child as if it were my own. It would feel like I was raising someone elses child for fun(which I just wouldn't want to do).

    Post Re: Would you be willing to adopt?

    If I married someone who already had children, I would adopt them. Also, after I got a couple of biological children, adoption could be nice.

    My conception of how a family should be is closer to the clan-concept. The more the merrier

    Post Re: Would you be willing to adopt?

    Okay, I will post a couple of other things. Another thing that must be considered is if the child has medical problems or anything ralated to this area. If you do not know who the mother of the child was and are unable to talk to her, then you are probably unable to get a medical background for the child. You do not know if certain disorders run in the family. Also, the child may already have things such as Down's Sydrome, Autism, etc. The child also might have developmental delays or psychological or behavioral problems. You have to consider if you are ready to take on something of that nature. Even with infants, you do not know if the mother smoked pot, or cigarettes, or consumed alcohol. Maybe the mother was malnourished. There are just many things people need to consider before they adopt. If no one else posts anything, I'll post more later.
