I am thinking of adopting a child. I never really cared too much about having my own biological children since it seems terribly selfish to bring another person into this world when there are over thousands of kids left abandoned with no parents.
My concern is that they won't allow me to adopt because I am single. I have a good paying job as a technician so I am financially stable. Is this enough for them to allow me to adopt or would they still say no because there isn't a mother in the picture?
I also live in a nice well kept home too.
Would they allow me to adopt?
Join the Big Brothers & Big Sisters society, or whatever they're called.
They essentially pimp out adults to orphans for a brief time.
You can help out little shits without having to commit to raising them.
I want to raise one though.
Is this a universal notion or does it depend on the state?
They have to go through such troubles to ensure they're right to raise the child though, right?
What other people are you referring to? I'm confused about your post.
>Stable heterosexual couples have to go through a lot of trouble to adopt
That's because they all want name-brand fresh from the womb white babies with no special needs.
If you want a crack baby, black baby, or go the foster rout, adopting is easy as fuck.
Not sure about for single people though.
If this is actually something you want to do, might be something you want to take 3 seconds to google for yourself instead of asking anonymous strangers who have no idea what state you're even in. Raising a kid is only going to get harder from here.
>They have to go through such troubles to ensure they're right to raise the child though, right?
Yes. That includes proving that everything about them is suitable for bringing up a child. Being a single male, you are not going to pass the test.
No, even adopting a relative's child is difficult and there are a lot of legal hoops you have to jump through.
I think the general reputation of 4chan.org outside of the website is that everybody here is autistic.
Comments like these certainly support this theory.
OP, I do not think you can properly raise a child if you do not know how to fucking Google.
This was the first result for "single parent adoption".
>Experience has shown that if your
urge to parent comes primarily from a desire
to meet your own needs (e.g., loneliness,
disappointment in romantic relationships,
unresolved fertility or other losses),
parenting will prove more challenging and
less satisfying for both you and your child
That almost definitely rules OP out as being suitable to raise a child
