My own country, the UK, there are lots of kids needing adopting right here, why go to other countries and adopt?
It's all very well for famous celebrities to adopt an african kid as a fashion trend, but I would go against the grain on this and just adopt from my own country....
I'll have to go with waynet on this one...my own country. There are so many children here in the US that are needing loving homes, why go through all the extra expense and hassle to bring in a child from another country and ignore the ones in my own back yard? My husband and I have been discussing this particular subject for some time, and plan to eventually look into adopting older children...there is a huge need for families of kids 5-16, especially those who are looking for homes that will allow them to stay with their siblings.
If at all possible, my own. Even if that meant making more effort and adopting a less 'picture perfect' child.
My own country, I would like my child to be comfortable with my language lifestyle and I should be comfortable with my child... so my country will be the right choice.

How should parents deal with lazy, unemployed, still-live-with-Mom-and-Dad adult children?It's one thing if your child loses his job and has to move back home, but how do you deal with one that won't even look for work, thinks you should still provide for all their needs (clean their room, wash...
