If you have no kids and you have yearned to have one, for a long time, it is high time you decide to adopt. Before adopting, you as a couple should have spoken about all the other options also. You should have obviously spoken about having a rented mom etc……
When you have felt that adopting is the best option, make sure about the other things like you will it is not may, never conceive in your life and have a kid.
Remember if you have your own kid and are adopting one more kid, then the adopted kid is legally eligible to share the equal amount in your property.
If you are adopting a bigger boy or a girl, then you do not know about the environment in which they were brought up. So obviously you cannot replicate the same environment and the boy or girl may feel completely out of place.
It is always suggested to adapt infants, than big kids. Infants may miss their previous environment for a few days, but easily will get adjusted to you also.
Remember! Though you have decided to give your property to the adopted kid, there are a lot more sacrifices which you will have to do for the kid.
If you are working women, you may have to quit the job to take care of the baby or have nannies in the house to take care, or put him/her to a proper daycare center. All these costs a lot of money.
If you are adopting a kid and already have a kid then there can be n number of fights between the two. If your kid is slightly older then he/she may not be convenient staying with a stranger.
If you are adopting the kid and also have a kid of your own, then you should have a proper mind set and always think that the adapted kid is your own. You can never show disparity between the two kids.
If you have not thought about all these things, high time you think about it. If you have already thought and ready for it, all the best. Enjoy the days with the new one in the family.
