Ten Good Reasons to Adopt a Teen

Submitted by PeterAKenny on May 8, 2018

Why older foster children think teen adoption is a great idea:

  1. No formula, diapers, bottles, or burp rags are required.
  2. We sleep through the night—even if our parents won’t.
  3. We will be ready to move out sooner. But we will always come home to visit.
  4. We can program your cell phone and VCR and help run your computer.
  5. We will keep you up to date with the latest trends and fashions.
  6. Once we get our permits, we can drive you to places.
  7. You don’t just get a child; you get a friend.
  8. We can pick up after ourselves and do our laundry.
  9. We will teach you to be more patient, understanding, kind, and empathetic.
  10. We all need someone to share our life dreams, achievements, and holidays with.
