GGGAAAHHHH!!!!! If one more person asks me that question, I am seriously going to throw something at them. Nobody goes around to pregnant women and asks them, "Why are you having a baby?"
Is there some terrible reason for adopting that people are trying to ferret out of me? Don't people adopt for the same reason they get pregnant? BECAUSE THEY WANT A KID!!!! Like what is so weird about this people?
I guess with pregnancy a lot of times it is an "oops" and people tacitly acknowledge the fact that "these things happen". Well, not with adoption! There's no "Oops, things got a little wild the other night and whoa! Looks like we've adopted a kid!" Nope. You have to REALLY WANT this kid. Adoption is never an accident.
Also, why do people give me the hairy eyeball when I say I have two bio kids and I am now adopting? Because I can *technically* have more bio kids, I should save the adoptable babies for couples who are infertile? Geesh! There are plenty of babies to go around, folks! Lots of babies need homes. And no, I am not doing this out of some altruistic, save-the-world syndrome. We just thought adopting would be a good idea.
