I was just wondering if any one here had considered Adoption?

My mum is adopted, my cousin is also adopted & another cousin may be adopting.
Ive always liked the idea of if.

Me & DF have talked in the past before about it & both agreed its something we wouldnt mind doing at some point in the future - many years away as we dont even want any more biological children of our own until Baby #2 atleast 5 /6 years old.

Its been on my mind alot lately & I was wondering if anyone else has considered it / wants to adopt?

*HUGS* Emma!

I've thought about it as much as anyone I suppose but I don't want to. I've thought more about being a surrogate mother but Dale is not keen on the idea.

I would deffo be a surrogate for someone, but only if it was someone elses agg and someone elses sperm. I dunno if they can do that lol...but I would carry someones baby for them. I have thought about donating my eggs too

As my DH and I have been able to have children naturally we've never really considered adoption.

My mums sister was adopted, and also my dads brother was adopted.. we actually found them both the same year it was bizarre.

I have talked to stuart about this before, that i would love to give a child a loving home, im all for it but then i think when the child grows up and wants to see his/her biological parents, im not sure i could handle that

My Grandparents adopted bother thier children (my mom and her brother, not bio related) and I have never really thought about. If we ever had problems ttc and couldn't have children I know I would never want to try IVF (my own personal reasons) so maybe then we would think about it. For us it would all depend on the situation I guess.
