Will you?

so yesterday my friends and I went to the hospital to see a friend that just gave birth to a baby girl. The baby is soooooooooooo cute and tiny, trust us girls na, we were all fighting to carry her like say na our own, infact i wanted to claim her as my 17th godchild, but someone else already beat me to it and i'm not too close to the mom (excuse rite?) lol. Anyways so we got talking about kids and parenting and someone raised the question, will you ever adopt a child? tick tick tick, omo i ve never for once thought about that you know, i told my inner mind. So as the ladies were all yapping and blabing, i was just thinking in my head, is giving to the needy kids enough or is taking a step further by adopting one a better way of changing their life. I decided to talk to a couple of other friends: guys and ladies and most parents and their response were quite interesting. 75% of people I spoke to believes that only couples that are unable to have kids should consider adopting (really? na wa oh) while 15% are of the opinion that if you can afford it, with or without your own biological kids, then you should do it and others like me are sooooooooo indiferent. Dont ask me how i got to figure out the percentage, i just know it. so guys what's your take on this topic, seriously oh, no jokes cos i have started thinking about it myself, aside lff (leave a footprint foundation) i'm embarking on, I should really be a good example and adopt one lovely baby to the 6 or 7 kids i intend to give to that lucky man. So share your opinion with the rest of us. XoXo...

BIG HEART 6 OR 7..wow have you ever taught of having a motherless baby home in nigeria ???
