Is it all right to adopt when you have your own child?
is it good idea?
Ummmm...yes and yes. If you have the means, the time, the patience), and enough love to spread around, and if it is what you really want AND you have included your children in (age appropriate) conversatiion (but, no, not the *actual* decision - their input, ABSOLUTELY!, a "vote", NO), then go for it!!
Yes, it is a great thing if you think to adopt a baby, but you should never treat them separately. both kids should be treated same.
I think so. There might be reasons after the first one was born, that you can't have any more. If you always wanted a bigger family then it makes sense to adopt or foster. I'm all for it if all these "unwanted" children get a home! I just wish it was easier to do.
Since your son is already grown up, maybe you should discuss it with him too. If he accepts the idea with an open heart, then go for it. Some child/children couldn't accept outsider as another "sibling" after so many years. Maybe you can consider the girl as your god-daughter instead?
Thanks for your reply here.
Quite a good idea. and many thanks for this one.
Outsiders?A CHILD should have no say in a decision that an ADULT makes. If an adult chooses 2 give a child the opportunity 2 reside in a home that's stable so B it. Children should not B given access 2 exercise discrimination or self centered behavi.
Thank you @vonda g nelson
for your view here.
have a good day ahead.
