When you adopt a child, you are going to be gaining the love from another child. Now, you may not be related by blood, but really, that doesn’t mean much. You can be just as good of a mom and dad, without having to be physically related to one another.

If you have extra room in your home, then that could be a safe place for a child that would not normally have a safe place to stay. You will be keeping the child out of harms ways.
