I'd like to adopt because I know I can't face going through pregnancy. I'm very squeamish and I have a phobia of vomiting. Although I whine about loud children, I feel differently when it's children and babies in my family who I love. I know I'll do great with a baby. Just one baby.
But the rules for adopting are unfair and diabolical. Apparently you have to be 100% mentally and physically stable (probably meaning no disabilities), you have to be rich, you have to be under 25, you have to own your own house, and all these other things that I don't have. But when you breed children none of these rules apply. Single parents with low paying jobs who are in council are usually financially supported and very secure, if the parents are not abusive or neglecting or dependant on drugs or alcohol. I don't drink or take drugs and I have an overwhelmingly caring nature. I treat my pets like they're my children. I actually put them first. And yes, I understand pets are easier than children but even so.
Also I heard you can't change the name of an adopted child. So I'll have to get used to having a little'n running around called Albert or some other name I dislike.
I found this interesting since I adopted and I'm autistic. I even did it unmarried.
Here's the (only) rules for prospective parents.
There may be luck for you after all!
