You’re asked to adopt because it’s the most considerate way to have a child as someone who is biologically unable, rather than intentionally separating children for their biological families for your personal gain. Why are supporters for donor-conception, constantly treat children as indifferent blank slates who should have to deal with their identity crises, the inability to know their medical records and their entire families just so the intended parents won’t feel bad about their infertility. Children aren’t objects or accessories to make you feel more included in social circles and social settings. They’re human being who’s feelings and opinions, need to be considered as much (or more) than their *caregivers. A parent’s role is not to buy children to make them happy, their job is to take care of a person who is too young and immature to take care of themselves.
