Would you adopt?

If you could never have children would it be an option for you to adopt a child?

Do you think you would have any trouble with the child not being your own blood?

If you thought you could not have a child naturally and then did could you still love the adopted child?

I don't think that I would have any trouble loving a child that was not my own because I know what it feels like not to be loved by your parents.

I could easily adopt a child and love it as my own for the rest of my life, even if I had my own blood child later. Adoption is basically a choice you make to love that child as your own. I have thought about the possibility of adopting in the future, and it's not a very hard decision to make.

I've always said that fostering and adopting children is something I would want to do, even more than having my own maybe, which in my case could be a very complicated situation. In the end it would be something I'd have to discuss with my partner, but I for one would have no trouble loving an adopting child as if they were my own. Having the same blood doesn't mean that much to me.

I don't want any kid to have to grow up like I did. So yes, yes, a million times yes. I would much rather start my own personal family if I can at some point but if that doesn't really happen, adoption might.

The idea of being able to do right by a family of my own or a kid that needs someone in their life is one of my strongest desires and motivations in life, I dunno what else to really say.

I would adopt a child in a heartbeat! I have seen children who live in awful conditions and have been mistreated through my job and it is heartbreaking. But then I have seen the effect of fostering and adoption on these kids, and the transformation is amazing! I would definitely give a home to a child who needs one, every child deserves a warm, loving home. If I was in a good financial place I would of applied already.

If I then had, or already had, children I don't think it would make me love an adopted child less. It may be slightly different, but certainly I would love them both/all.

Absolutely I would. I thought about it for some time a few years ago. I was never blessed with a son so I thought about adopting one but never did. With what is going on now maybe it's better that I never did but I certainly thought about it at some point and a part of me regrets never doing it.

I certainly would but I would want a baby as a first choice.

Do you think you would have any trouble with the child not being your own blood?
Not at all.

If you thought you could not have a child naturally and then did could you still love the adopted child?
Kind of a loaded question but I understand where you're coming from. I'd love all of my children equally. An adopted child is still my child.

I'm not sure. I don't really like children to begin with but then I think life will get lonely and somehow I'll need a motive and a kid to take care of. Probably the desire for kids changes with age and the biological clock will tick. If yes, I don't think I'd have a problem with the adopted child. I should need him/her for real in order to adopt him/her.

I have a high respect for those who adopt. It's a huge commitment for someone who's not your own blood.

I can't imagine myself with a child and childbirth frightens the life out of me. I know it's a silly reason not to have a child, but my main reason is because I think I'd be crap at it. I am so clumsy and I feel a little immature.

I think if I was ready for a child, I would adopt if I had to. I feel I am a loving and accepting person. I mean there are heaps of orphans out there who are desperate to be loved. Blood or not, it wouldn't matter if you had it in you.

I really don't know. I know if a disaster happened and a neighbors child was left homeless I would take them in. I would love them and take care of them as if they were my own.

I had a neighbors child tell their parents that they were moving in with me when their family was talking about moving.
