So this is something that I have been thinking alot about, with pcos it is very difficult to have children. I have friends on both sides of the fence who either had an amazing experience or or a not so amazing experience. Of course not knowing anything I would have hope for an amazing experience. While we were home for Thanksgiving I was talking with my sister in law about it. Her sister had recently adopted and my s-i-l went to classes with her in preparation for the adoption. She said something that just made sense to me, "Women are put on the earth to be mothers, some to have children, and some to raise children." Of course alot of women can do both, but the way the world is more people are having to adopt or not have children due to their circumstances. Don't get me wrong I want to and would love to have my own children, but if it isn't something that is in the cards for me I will adopt without question. I know their are people out there, even within my family that would think that I am crazy for saying that, but I see it as I want children, and alot of children need homes, so why not let us both have that opportunity. I think I would be able to provide a good home for them.
I know that this is kind of a random subject but it is something that I have just really felt strongly about recently. I know that I have only been married a couple years but I really feel like we are ready to start our family. Whether our children be born into or adopted into they will be our children and never feel like they are outsiders.
What do you think about adoption?
