  • If you want to with me. (^_-)
  • I definitly would. My cousin was adopted when he was 5 days old and he was brought into a very loving home. He has known about it since he could understand it and never had an issue with it. I would love to give a child a home that doesn't have one.
  • who needs to adopt when you can kidnap
  • Wierd because I'm only 14 but I have sort of thought about it and I would adopt (or foster) a child. I think it would be worthwhile because there are so many children that have been brought into the world and might not have anyone who are a good influence/mentor/guardian. A lot of children need someone who can truely care and focus their love and attention on them.
  • Under the right circumstances I would.
  • I have my own, but if I couldn't have children then no. No I would not adopt.
  • Umm yeah I think I would. Even though it wouldn't be my child, it would still be worth it knowing that I helped a child that might not have had a good childhood or life had I not jumped in and offered to help. +5
  • In my youth I did consider it but never had the money back then to go through with it. I could bearly afford the two kids I had at the time. Now I have the money but not the energy to keep up with kids. I knew a guy years ago who adopted 5 children. The family was like the brady bunch. All the children where so happy. He came from a big family and always wanted lots of children. They were beautiful to see together.
  • It depends on a few things. Here in eastern Canada we have no say over what child is placed with us. We can request the gender, approximate age and race but we don't get to see pictures ahead of time. I do not feel as a mom that I can fall in love with just any child! I've babysat enough to know that some people just don't click. And the waiting list for a newborn is about 10+ years long. So I would adopt an older child from the USA, especially Maine if I had the cash but it's no less than $25000.
  • If I was unable to give birth; yes.
  • Yes, I would like to do that when I decide to settle down.
  • I would love to adopt! the only restriction for me is that i would not be able to afford it. it cost so much just so you canhave a child and give it a good life.
  • I know myself well enough to know I would never love that child like I love my son, and it would be totally unfair to that baby...so, no I would never adopt
  • When I was younger, yes. But currently, no. +5
  • I would love to but i got three kids, and a ex-wife thats a pain in the ass
  • I've given it consideration before.
  • Yes. There are plenty of children that need a family.
  • I am adopted and i don't like it because i can't see my birthmom till 18 and it's weird.
  • I would hope that anyone in a position to and able should definately consider it. When I was 17 I got my girlfriend pregnant and we decided that adoption was the best option for the child. It was one of the most painful experiences to let him go but we know that the family that adopted him are giving him a better life than I ever could. There are are so many great children that need good parents!
  • no i have two and they are bad no more kids for me.
  • Not at my age, I am fifty, because my children are long grown. I would make an exception if something were to happen to my child and would adopt my grand child.
  • we adopted our first child and then gave birth to our second child. i love both children equally and they mean more to me than anything that i've every accomplished. would i adopt another child? well, the adopted child whom we now have is perfect! my ms is slowing me down too much and my wife left me, so, now is not the time to consider another adoption. the last was such a blessing that if the cards were right, i'd do it again and again in a heart beat!
  • if i were physically unable to bear children of my own, then yes.
  • I made the decision to adopt at the highly premature age of 13. Now, I would still very much consider adopting - and not just as an option in the event of being unable to conceive. My S/O however is currently adament that he would only adopt in that instance. ... So we will see what happens!
  • No. I am too old to start raising a child again.
  • Yes, I will definately ! I liked to have as many kids and from every nook and corner of the world and they'll share my last name. But first I need to make that money to support them
  • Sure, why not.
  • I would consider it.
  • No. But if I wanted a child I would.
  • Not at my age NOW! But, when I was younger, if I was unable to have a child. . . . . .I WOULD! Sure!
  • We adopted when we both were 56 (6 years ago). :) She is our only child. We are one happiest set of parents on earth. :)
  • I plan on not having any children, but have always said that if I change my mind about that I will adopt.
