- Is it the lack of financing the adoption?
- Is it that you'd like to get better financially stable?
- Is it your age?
- Is it because you're single?
- Is it you're afraid of what your family and friends will think?
- Is it you're afraid of the unknown of what the child will be like?
- Are there other reasons?
And because I believe ultimately, every single person may truly be in a position not to adopt, I want to take this further. What do you think stands in the way of you becoming an advocate for better family support so that children won't have to be relinquished? Or, what stands in your way of supporting credible agencies who support and care for orphans in your country or abroad? Or, what stands in your way of supporting families who can potentially say yes.....did you know $1, $5, $20, $100 and on and on makes a big difference in becoming a partner with a family?
Please tell me. I want to know. Even if you'd like to reply anonymously, I want to know BUT please keep it clean and friendly here. (Please don't use all caps --aka screaming-- or attack anyone verbally here or it will be deleted.) Please share this blog post via twitter, facebook, e-mail, or heck even Paul Revere (smile). I'd just like to find out from anyone that will answer, what keeps you from adopting so that I can keep advocating.
Thanks so much!
