I know a lady that got married at age 20 years old. She and her husband wanted to have a baby. She tried to get pregnant for 8 years and then gave up when it seemed that it failed to happen. Then much to her surprise she got pregnant. Wow! In her pregnancy found out she was having twins! She gave birth to identical twin boys. I have two cousins that wanted to get pregnant. They tried for many years but without luck. One of them had medical treatment in order to get pregnant. That cost a lot of money but put her health at risk. She was sad to give up the treatment. Neither of them adopted and in their situation I would have adopted after five years of trying to get pregnant.

Adoption is an excellent solutionf or couples who cannot concieve and hence would want to have a child, but in all this we forget that there is a lot of emotions involved in adoption. Specially raising a child is a huge responsibilty and raising a adopted child is a greater responsibilty specially since there are be trouble during teenage, where your actualy kids do not think they are related to their parents, you will have to be ready to face a lot of questions and be open to listening.

..hi.. I have witnessed couples with no kids and they are still happy.. I think adoption is a choice to be decided by both partners.. anybody can adopt even if they have kids already.. For me, adoption is a way of showing generosity to other people.. If you have the means and the heart to raise and love other people not your blood, then you are blessed.. It really depends..
