A lot of adults want to have children, and some either can’t have children by birth or can’t have children that way.
Let me give you an example; me. My brilliant son, who is awesome, is adopted. I don’t have a partner, so if I wanted children, I couldn’t do it the way most people do. So I decided to adopt rather than wait to meet someone I would have a child with, and I’m really glad I did; because I then got to adopt my gorgeous son, and he’s everything I could have hoped for in a child.
Us adopters want to be parents; we want to give a child a loving home where they can have a happy life. It’s such a joy to be a parent, no matter how we’ve got there.
I would have loved to have been there for my son from the day he was born, but I get to be there for him now and in the future. That makes me happy.
I’ve wanted to be a dad for years, and it’s never bothered me how I got there; adoption was the best thing I could have done. That’s why I never shy away from talking about it; I’m proud to have had the chance to pick out my son from all the different possibilities. I loved him immediately.
So, I hope you can see that children are wanted; they might have come to their forever home in a hundred different ways, but they’re always wanted – and loved so very much.
