Have you always wanted to adopt, or did you start thinking about it because of a particular event (infertility, adoption of a family member, etc.)

I've always thought about it. The Bible commands us to care for the widows and fatherless, so what better way than to adopt a fatherless child?

We thought about it very early on in our marriage and agreed that if we for some reason could not have biological children then when we certainly not hesitate to adopt. It took us four years and Clomid to have our first bio son, so when it came time to think of having a second child, we both felt strongly that we wanted to adopt rather than go through all that again. Then we met our friend's little girl from China, and knew FOR SURE that was what we wanted to do.

I have always wanted to adopt. Growing up I knew of many people that were adopted. To be honest I have always wanted my own children first though. Well DH and I have fertility problems and instead of moving on to IVF or more inseminations we have decided to adopt now instead of waiting. We are not giving up on our own but we really feel this is the right time to adopt.
I know many people think that adoption shouldn't be a "second choice" but for many it is the second choice when they can't have their own kids. I would rather people adopted the children that need homes as a "second choice' then not at all. We will still love them and care for them as much as if it were our first choice. My DH had never thought about adoption until we had fertility problems but now he can't wait to get it started and he's so excited about being able to adopt a child that needs a home. I know we will be good parents and whether it's a second choice or not I can't wait to welcome a child into our home and share our lives and love.
