I want to adopt a child

My wife and I decided to adopt after years of infertility. As fate would have it, neither of us were fertile. We couldn't have children, even with medical help. There were many factors that played into our decision to adopt our child, whether we could supply for our child financially, whether we were set up to take care of a child. The biggest question for me was, would I bond with my child in the way I needed to in the same way a biological child might bond with his child? In the end, all of those things were washed away. We had several friends who had just gone through the adoption process. It was such a beautiful process. The bond that they had with their children was so incredible; there was literally no fear going to adoption, that those things might happen for me.
