I would love to adopt kids, even if I end up having to do it on my own. I want most to adopt siblings out of the foster care system so they do not have to be separated from one another.
As I said, I would love to have an asexual husband to be a part of the family. I think he could bring a lot of ideas, support, and warmth to the family. 🙂 Unfortunately there just do not seem to be many asexual men, not to mention one who would be compatible to?/like? me AND want a family! But hey– it only takes one!
My main concern for raising children on my own is honestly finances. I am going into teaching, and want to work in very poor districts around the US. I truly believe this is my calling. But I just do not know if a rural teacher’s salary alone can support an adult and 2+ children as they grow up. I do not have a particular desire to be wealthy, but I want to be able to take care of my children as best as I can 🙂
In any case, I have begun putting aside little bits of money now and then into my “dream box.” Maybe one day it will be full enough to help me adopt someone in need!
