My husband and I have 4 beautiful biological children which we love to death. My eldest is almost 11 and my youngest is 1 1/2 yrs old. We have officially stopped having more children after my last daughter. However, now I think we should adopt a child. My husband thinks it would be wonderful to adopt a child but doesn't think we have the room or money to adopt a child because we only have a 3 bedroom house. However, the house is large enough that we can make a fourth room in the play room which is big enough that we could cut it in half so that we had a 4th bedroom and a playroom. As far as the money, I am a registered nurse so I make decent money and my husband is a submariner in the Navy. We make a good living, though we'd have even more money if I didn't have to pay for a nanny while I work. I don't want to adopt a baby, I want to help a true child in need...an older child that would most likely be school aged and someone that is in the foster care system. Am I being selfish? Or is my husband just making excuses?
