It wouldn't be my first choice.. I don't know, I want my children to be MY children, not someone else's. I know its for a good cause, giving a child a home, but that's still my opinion. Of course I wouldn't completely rule out the possibility. If for some reason I can't have children with my future wife, I would definitely consider adoption.

I don't really want kids at all, since I'm not much of a kid person. However, if it were between raising kids of my own and adoption, I'd go with adoption because I'd feel it's a more nobler cause in this day in age. You have overpopulation and the last thing I'd do is contribute to it. Besides, I have some genetic traits that I'd rather not pass on.

...but can't they become your children anyways?especially in cases when they were just abandoned somewhere.

He means, HIS children, as a product created from himself, carrying his genes, his traits, his looks.

Yes.
Think about it like this, would you feel more comfortable with a painting that you yourself made, with your own hard-work and dedication; blood sweat and tears.
Or would you rather take a painting that someone else drew, but you happen to like it?

I mean theres nothing wrong with adoption, every child deserves loving parents. But personally, unless I cannot make a child, I would always go with procreation first, because its simply will be a real actual part of me.

i would feel comfortable either way.^^

But i understand your reasoning,it's nice feeling to have someone actually reflect yourself that way.....But the current status of world overweights such feeligns for me.I'd rather give homeless child home since there are already too much children in world who don't have thing called "home".And i feel i am able to love homeless,abandoned child as my own....but thats just me.=)

Maybe . . . never got involved with someone who had kids still at home . . .

I'm kind of old to be starting a family, but one of my great uncles had his last daughter when he was about 55.

Kind of different when your Grandfather's brother has a daughter that's only a year and a half older than you.

Who knows I might meet "Ms. Right" . . . .

I would adopt the strangely furry, cute, four-legged kids. At least when they grow older, they don't talk back and give you a teenage snippy attitude.

i'd choose adoption over getting pregnant. ^_^
