Right? Especially considering how many children there are out there waiting to be adopted. If it was easier SO and I would definitely do it. I would have two of my own and adopt at least one more (more if we would afford it).

My son's father is an American. My son was born out of the country (Germany) and is both a German and American citizen.

I think they're worried about placing kids into abusive homes.

How did he get dual citizenship?

Because he was born there. Its nothing you apply for. You become a German citizen by either birth, adoption or naturalization. He won't have it for life. He has to choose between German and American citizenship by the time he is 23.

I know some people here who tried and were completely denied and were told at the Rathaus the kid will never have a claim to German citizenship.

*shrugs* I don't know why. I received paperwork in the mail from the Rathaus explaining his dual citizenship. I had to get the patient liaison to translate it because, of course, it was in German. Instead of just the consular of birth, he has two separate birth certificates. A German one and the US consular of birth. I know a girl who only has the US consular of birth certificate, she never received a German one so I don't know. Maybe my kid got lucky.

Honestly, I would adopt a couple of them. I would like to have one more of my own and if affording to adopt wasn't an issue, I would adopt 3 more.. I wouldn't ask for a certain gender, age or race.. Just like with my children, I get what I get and am thankful for them.

I really want to adopt siblings. I hate the thought of siblings being split up because most people won't take both.



No babies.

What the hell are you talking about? Adoptions costs thousands of dollars in the states.

Most likely not. If I were to some how change my mind about adoption age and race wouldn't matter to me, I'd also most likely adopt from the US.

Sorry I can't link it but this website says it's about $100 through the state.



I don't know about $10, but that is still pretty cheap.

How interesting. Even more reason why there shouldn't be so many children in foster care when there are so many people out there who want to a child "so badly".

people generally want healthy white newborns. Nobody wants the older kids. It's really sad
