It’s a complicated personal question with perhaps a more complicated answer. The short answer is yes! If you have the desire to have a child, and you have a lot of love in your heart, then there is a child out there who needs you. There is another serious part of the question, however, that must be considered. Are you right for adoption?
Adoption means a lifelong commitment by you, and everyone involved. You must adopt or the right reasons. If you are adopting to try and save a troubled marriage, to keep up with your friends that have children, to simply have someone to keep your family name going, or due to pressure from others like parents, you are not in the right place to adopt right now, and it would be best not to consider adoption at this time.
Adoption also means you must be ready to deal with the financial, emotional, and time demands on your life. A child requires a great deal of your time, attention, and love, in addition to financial support. Do you have the means to support a child? Do you have the time that a child will need? Do you have the room in your home for a child? You need to be able to answer “yes" to these questions.
Adoption can be one of, if not the most rewarding experiences of your life, as long as you are in the right place in your life to handle all of the needs and demands that come along with it.
