WOW | What You Think

Would you adopt a child?

Irrespective of whether you have your own or are not able of having one for any reason.

I would definitely adopt a child. I know that adoption and giving birth are both very different ways of creating or growing a family, but either ways are acceptable to me. However, I want to feel the moment when a child whom I have met only a few months, weeks or even days ago will seek me and only me from among the crowd. There is no doubt that giving birth to an offspring is beautiful but adopting someone else’s child and making him/her your own is a miracle. I would feel a unique satisfaction in realising a family created by choice and love.
