Adoption?

I need your help. Please honestly answer the following seven questions:

1) Have you ever CONSIDERED adopting a child?

2) Have you ever CONSIDERED how you can help others adopt?

3) Have you ever SPONSORED a child financially?

4) Have you ever CONSIDERED being a foster parent?

5) Do you KNOW anyone who has adopted? If yes, did you support them in any way? (prayer or financial)

6) Do you BELIEVE adoption is mostly for the infertile?

7) Would you ever want information on how you could help orphans both here and abroad? (I will not take a yes answer as you wanting information from this website – just hypothetical.)

By answering this brief questionnaire, you are in no way committing to anything. I just want to know what is in America’s heart regarding this topic. Your answers will be invaluable tools for me as I consider a future project.

Thank you!

    Yes to all except no. 2. In school we have a number of families who have adopted children, various races and reasons, all of whom are an important and integrated part of our community. I believe that without them we would be the poorer in very many ways, but at the same time we should not hold them up as examples. We are lucky to have the opportunity to love children who through no fault of their own were failed by their birth families. I think we are the fortunate ones, a child who is adopted and loved is merely receiving what is the birthright of every child.

      I love your point of view! Being loved by a parent should be the birthright of every child! More families need to be open to the prospect of adoption, there are so many orphans out there.

      Thank you for your insight.
