I’m going to cut straight to the point here: I’m kicking around the idea of adoption. I want to throw some ideas out there, so I figured what better place to do it than here, right? I’m still not pregnant and okay with it, but I’m the kind of person that likes to plan things. I want to know my options.
I like the idea of adoption for a couple reasons. First and foremost, we’d be providing a child that needs a home all the love and support we could. There are so many children out there that need homes and I would love to have the opportunity to give one of those children a good future. I also like the fact that the baby is already here on this Earth and I don’t personally have to do any physical labor to get it here (although I do really want to experience pregnancy)! Pregnancy scares me a little.
Now for the downsides: adoption is EXPENSIVE. We’re not exactly rolling in the dough. We certainly have a comfortable lifestyle, but I don’t think we could afford $10,000-$15,000 for the adoption. I’d like to try for a little while longer to have a baby before we jump into adoption. It’s such a serious decision that it’s not something I want to take lightly.
Would you ever consider adoption? Do you think it’s something we should try to do?
