While it would be better to have your own child, having an adopted child is no less than a blessing as well. It was something I am open with, in case there’s an opportunity.
There are times where I get to have serious talks with my friends and when we get to the topic of having children, I am here saying, “I want to adopt a child.” All of sudden, they would argue and try to convince me on how adopting a child is never a good idea at all. But why would they react that way anyhow?
Well, that is for them to answer. For now, I want to share my reasons why I keep on bringing up the topic of adopting a child.
I want to have a child
Well, of course, naturally I’ll have one when I marry and start a family. But the future is not something we have a control of. What if I am meant to stay single? I still want to become a parent and experience being one (despite fearing it all over). There are a lot ways to have a child, but I am open in the idea of adoption. I don’t care much if the child is from some random stranger. I’m fine with it.
I want to experience pure love
One of the few beliefs I hold on to is that children have the purest love in them. There’s nothing purer and truer than loving your child. Say I am meant to be single for the rest of my life, I still want to experience love, and it doesn’t matter in what form, as long as I get to experience it.
To give a chance for them to be loved
These kids are orphan, technically or figuratively. And if there’s one thing they wish in life, it’s for them to feel the love of a family. And maybe, when I’m meant to have a chance, I’m willing to give it a try.
The world is overpopulated, so why add another one? Okay, it was meant to be a joke. (A bad joke, in fact).
Kidding aside, I am serious with this. But if I get to meet Mr. Future Husband Whose Gonna Be the Father of My Children (I was supposed to say Mr. Right or The One, but it’s too cliché it sounded gross), of course there’s no reason for me to adopt a child. But if Mr. Future Husband and I don’t get to have kids, then adoption is indeed an option. But when Mr. Future Husband is inexistent, then I would probably want to adopt one.
