  • Both. I already had one child, and I want to have more but I really want to adopt one (or more) someday too.
  • I would rather have my own, don't think i could take to it as my own.
  • i want to try once and if i dont get twins, then i will adopt one the same age.
  • i want to try and have a few, but if me and my wife end up not being able to then i want us to adopt :)
  • It has to have my DNA or it is going deep into the woods. I actually want to have a dozen kids.
  • I have plenty of my own, now. I'd much rather spend my time 'practicing' making babies! :)
  • Have one but any child I'd adopt would be equally loved.
  • I would prefer to father a child, though adopting one would be a great addition to my family.
  • Neither, I already have five. Would I have rather had one or adopted one? I would rather have had one and adopted the remainder in some ways. However, unless it was an open adoption with an infant, I would not have felt comfortable doing so. I have a couple of friends who ended up in nightmare situations trying to take on older kids. They simply do not always provide all the background information. Taking on a child with serious disabilities or disorders without being prepared for it is way too difficult with an older child.
  • That is such a hard choice. When I watch the "Child is waiting" program on TV it just breaks my heart. I want all of them. I had two sons of my own, but I never adopted any. I was an emergency foster care provider for many years, but I only got teenagers.
  • I've had this conversation with my girlfriend (who's 44 and just about too old to have kids) and said, if I'm going to ultimately spend a half million dollars on a kid, I want it to be mine. Very selfish, I know. The weird part is, I've got friends with adopted kids. The kids are great, although each has some physical problems. But that's not the issue. I want a little bit of me in the kid. Again, I know it's selfish.
  • I would rather adopt than have my own. I made that decision when I was twenty-one.
  • Both, I already have 2, and I hope to have other children, but biological or not, I don't care, that is not important for me.
  • could I lease one?
  • Adoption, probably. Not only do I just not like the idea of adding yet another person to the world when we already seem to have more than enough, but according to the geneological research I've done, there are some very bad recessive traits (Marfans; Schizophrenia; Drinking Problems, etc.) in my bloodline that I'd rather not risk passing on to my child.
  • Both. Having your own son or daughter is nice but, there are alot of kids out there that need a home.
  • adopt, id rather help to cure the crisis of overpopulation than add to it. there are so many children who just need a home and some love.
  • I gave birth to one and I know the special feeling a women knows carrying and actually giving birth. I can no longer have anymore though I would love to. If I had the money I would gladly adopt though I don't think I could adopt a special needs baby. my son was a special needs baby and they require a lot of special things. As a single parent it was really tough having a special needs child and I don't think I could do that again. If the child was not special needs I would in a heartbeat. I know nobody is guaranteed a perfect child and I know my answer may sound mean but there are very special people in the world created for special needs kids and I am so thankful for those people. I would much rather be able to give birth again but unfortunately I won't ever be able to do either adopt or give birth
  • i would like to have a couple of my own and then maybe adopt, the adopted child would be treated and loved as my own (well it is anyway)..
  • i would rather have either or! It would not matter how i had the baby! I would llove it equally an very courtesy! The baby needs me if it is in need for adoption! Every baby born into this world needs a family, shelter, love food an supplies of welnesss.
  • Adopt. There are so many kids out there without homes.
  • i have a baby but i would love to adopt a baby and give it a good home a love it
  • I would adopt one considering the fact that i am a guy! lol.
  • I have had my children and I can't have any more. I got myself fixed because although i am naturally firtile and make rather beautiful children if I do say so myself... It took a hell of a toll on my body and I am too old now to have more safely. But I would love to adopt one now.
  • Both, I would love to have a kid of my own, but also would like to adopt; not only was my dad adopted, but I have a lot of friends and family that have adopted! :)
  • I would like to have a baby.
  • Have a baby - I love being pregnant!
  • have one.
