Wednesday Factoid: Adoption

Today's Wednesday Factoid is: Would you ever adopt kids?

I'm afraid I have to say no.

I'm pretty sure I don't ever want to be responsible for any children. I'm not really even a particularly good babysitter, though I do love children (and they seem to love me).

I'll just keep being somebody's dorky aunt.

I've thought about it, though. I think I would consider adopting kids if I was really rich or something, but I think that's mostly because I know myself and I know I would want/need a break from taking care of them all the time, so I would probably need to hire some folks to help me or pay for daycare.

I think the most likely scenario for me adopting kids, however, is if there was a child in my life who somehow lost their parents or their parents could not care for them anymore. I could see myself taking over to parent someone like that. But I don't think I would deliberately make a decision to adopt kids just to adopt kids.

Man, babies are so much fun though.

  1. if you were really rich and you could afford someone anyone to take care of the kids whenever u needed to, would u have your own biological kids?
