View Full Version : Partner does not want to adopt.
I would like to adopt or be a foster mother but my partner does not want to do this. I feel very strong about this and was wondering if anyone has some suggestions on how i should approach this topic in the future.
I wish I could offer some advice as I am in the same boat as you. DH & I already have 2 children together but are unable to have anymore. I still don't feel as though we have completed our family but DH is not interested in fostering any children.
If you feel that strongly about it, don't give up on your dream yet. Maybe get online and do some research, try to convince your partner to go to an information session to find out what's involved - after all, how can they make an informed decision if they don't know all the facts?
I wish you all the best
It must be very hard for you. Is it an issue you were aware was a possibility of when you guys got together? It must be hard when you have to face such issues down the track in a relationship.
Is there some kind of counselling a couple can have that helps them work out differences and maybe points out the hardships and positives of adopting?
That might help you both :)
