Have you come across a childless parent adopting someone's child?

My cousin and his wife are childless and they adopted a child of 3 years and now she is in college. Both husband and wife have written a will, dedicating all their wealth to this child.

Well, that's good to know that they're compassionate to have come into such a nice way. As we may know, there are couples who were unfortunate to come across wealth but were blessed with many children and or vice versa. I met lots of couples who were childless and so they prefer to adopt a child then as I could see often, they're happy as a family. It seems like they completed their family. The most important thing is, whoever would you consider a family, you must be sure that you're happy in doing that way.

I know of a great cinema actor and his wife who are childless and adopted 2 girls, gave them education, brought them up and they are married off to well to do men. Today those girls have 2 children each. IT is a happy family.

I know soooooo many issueless couples who adopted others children. My Maternal aunt adopted a Brahmin Girl and my export consultant adopted a 5 years old girl. It is common scenario in India, isnt?

Many people want to adopt the children but do not like to part all their wealth when they grow old,
