People who adopt children are INCREDIBLY generous!

Imagine the millions of babies who could be adopted by loving families but will never have a birthday thanks to Liberal fools and Roe v. Wade.

Then why were there ever orphanages if there were so many loving families willing to adopt?

Maybe you should read about the orphan trains. Yes LOVING families are truly generous to adopt a child but not every family is a loving one. And not every child is a cute infant. Lots of children are languishing in foster care.

Sarah, your liberal stripes are again showing. Instead of seeing joy, you focus on VICTIMS, as all liberals do. Their solution is unfortunately, let Big Faulty Government solve the problem. Your argument is so weak that you must dig up senerio's like orphanages and adoption trains, things that were prominant 100 years ago, in the USA. You ask why there were ever orphanages. The fact is, 100 years ago in The U.S many folks could not earn enough money to support and feed their families. My mother and one of her brothers, 2 of 7 kids, were place in an orphange, when their father died and her mother could not support them. Their were no other living relatives to lend a hand. In spite of this my mother raised a great family and her grandson has adopted 2 wonderful Children. Why do those of you who are pro abortion, always act so critical of adoption? Why are you for killing babies by abortion, but against the death penalty for murderers? That is a bigger question.
To sum it up; these folks did a wonderful caring thing and there will be a special place in the great beyond for them. " Suffer the little children and let them come on to me and I will give them the kingdom of God"!

Tell that to the countless children languishing in the foster care systems in the United States, much less to the children in orphanages around the world. Adoption is great, and my husband and I plan to adopt once we're financially stable, but it's not a solution for everyone. Lots of kids spend their entire childhood and adolescence in foster care and never find a forever family. Don't be naive.

I think that Orphanages, can be a much better solution than foster care The famous Boy's Town, is one great example. I was fortunate to retire at a very early age and for over 30 years I volunteered administering primary health care programs in 3rd world countries. I saw many great orphanages, as well as tragedies. It all depends on the folks running them. There is no one solution, except that abortion should never be the solution.

Why do people insist on adoptions outside the USA? There are so many babies here -- of all colors --- why not them?

First of all I'm not pro-abortion. I'm pro-CHOICE. That means I support a woman's right NOT to have an abortion as well as chosing to have an abortion. Secondly, where did I criticize adoption? I simply stated that there were not enough loving families to adopt the children who exist NOW so where did Wonderful think that the MILLIONS of extra babies would find loving families? Thereby once again strengthening the impression that anti-choicers give no thought at all as to what will happen AFTER birth.

We also adopted a little girl with Tetrology of Fallott. She also had open heart surgery and is now a thriving pre-schooler. Every family has their own reasons for adopting and especially for adopting a special needs child. Please try to see this family as individuals making individual choices. It is frustrating when other people assume they understand your motives or presume to know your feelings. My best wishes to the entire family.
