Re: Asked to be adoptive parent...
I am all for adoption and I really hope this works out in your favor. We have looked into adoption before and it can be heartbreaking to get your hopes up so just be ready because a friend of mine has a cousin who wanted to give her baby up for adoption. We were considering taking the baby then my husband started to have 2nd thoughts once he found out the mother did drugs so the mother found another family had them help her through the whole pregnancy and at the hospital signed the baby over to another family member at the last second instead. Im not telling you this to talk you out of it just be VERY cautious. Another thing to consider is maybe requiring the mother to take birth control education classes, discussing abstinence with her or something along those lines so she doesn't just keep having kids and getting rid of them. This is such a sad situtation and 100% preventable.
