100% I would want to, regardless of whether I have bio kids or not.

@figgnewton:  Nope – they were out the money.

@IheartNYC:  They aren’t able to have biological children but they did ultimately successfully complete 2 adoptions.

I would.  We already have a biological son, and no reason to think we’d have any trouble conceiving another child (we were not even TTC when I got pregnant), but if we do decide to expand our family further I would love to adopt.  An infant actually wouldn’t be my first choice; I’d rather adopt a child in the ~3-6 age range.

Personally I have no interest in IUI, IVF, or any other really invasive medical intervention, so had we not been able to conceive at all we would have either adopted or remained childfree.

Absolutely. I’ve long wanted to, and in the long term, we have the means to do so, if we wanted to. My husband doesn’t want to adopt.

We have talked about having a biological child and then, later on down the line, possibly adopting a second.

Adoption in the UK doesn’t cost money (as far as I know).

I would. But plans for a family are not yet formulated so I don’t know what we will do 🙂

@Mrs.KMM:  I’m glad to hear they went on to adopt 2 beautiful kids after that.

For those of you who watch Parenthood, last season, that happened to a family – went to the hospital to pick up the child (they paid for the prenatal care of the mom for months) and the mom decided to keep the baby. I cried while watching this.

I definitely would. My father was adopted, and he says that he is so thankful to both his biological and adoptive parents for the life he has. I would love to love on a child that needs it.

Absolutely. We have talked about it since very early in our relationship. We’re expecting baby 1 right now and I’m 33 years old. I would like to try for baby 2 eventually but if it doesn’t work out we will most definitely adopt. Even if we do have baby 2 we might go on and adopt anyway!!

No.  I have adopted siblings and I absolutely LOVE them, but it’s just not something that appeals to me. I’ve seen what my mom has dealt with (at no fault of my siblings or her own) and it just isn’t something I’d want to go through myself.  I applaud those who do, though!

Definitely!  We would also adopt even if we had our own biological children.

I always wanted to adopt. Wasn’t interested in being pregnant and there are enough children in the world. Biological children are important to Fiance so we will try for a baby. If it doesn’t happen naturally then we will adopt. No IVF for me.

I don’t think we would adopt, simply because of the money factor.

If we can’t have children naturally, then I would absolutely want to adopt! If we can have biological children though, I’m not sure I’d be up for all the expense and hassle. I have done some research so that if we need to go that route, I’d know what all is involved.

No, I would not adopt. I would have a lot of dogs and be okay without kids. (At least I think so).

I was intrigued with international adoption for awhile but, it can be a very difficult and lengthy process.
