I'd love to hear your views on this !!!!!! Ok here I go ...... I am seriously considering adopting a baby instead of actually conceiving one ...... And this inevitably brings up the question "why do u want to adopt when you can have one of your own ..... And to this I say... ..why do u want to have one of your own when there are so many kids with no one to care for,... Is it so hard & incomprehensible to even think that I would rather take care of a child who is already here than make/have one of my own ?? I am prefectly healthy (no gyn probs) just making things clear for ppl who think that u can only contemplate adoption if you can't have kids. Should I really give into these social pressures & misconceptions.... Is bloodline more important than giving a lonely child a chance at life !!! The worst part is knowing that this child will grow up with or without our help..the only difference will be that she/he will hate or love life , be miserable on the other side of the globe perhaps or be warm, cozy & cuddled up with you !
