More on adoption and the allergy

My friend with whom I talked about adoption the other day contacted me after reading my blog and explained that she's not against adoption, just that she's seen a lot of bad experiences and that she would rather like to have her own kid. I guess it was a miscommunication between us, it was probably not the right time and place to discuss it when we originally spoke about it. A thought that came to my mind though was that, is it easy to blame on the adoption factor the problems you have with an adopted the kid? I have no idea if it is so but it would be interesting to know. Perhaps if it's your own kid you blame it on the teenage years or something else when you are having rough times. In any case, as I said before, I just think it's sad that most reactions you get when you speak about adoption are negative. Any experiences/thoughts of your own?

By the way, yesterday a doctor concluded that my rashes most probably was an allergic reaction and I got some pills, so the itchiness finally got better. What exactly I reacted to is still a mystery but let's hope it doesn't come back anytime soon!


  1. Hmm, I am quite positive to the thought of adopting a child. I would _perhaps_ like to experience the preggo-thingy once, but after that adoption would be an alternative. No previous experience of adoptive children though.
