Q: 

Genetic depression within child not adopt vs. child adopt?

A: If it''s going to develop there''s not much to prevent it. Nature vs. nuture...I think it''s a bit of both. I reflect on the person who''s be warned would hang on to it in the backbone of their mind and analyze feelings closer. And the personage who doesn''t know might miss important clues and deferment a diagnosis. Heredity does play a part, but so does putting something contained by a child''s mind. I''d say the child that have a better chance of displaying the depression, is the one who have inherited it....

Q: 

In adoption should race be an issue?

A: I live in Michigan and am currently in the process of trying to find the right agency to assist me in the adoption of a little girl 4-8 years old from the foster care system. I consider myself white (because I look white mostly but I''m technically 1/4 Ojibwa & 1/4 Cheyenne Native American) but 65% of the available children in foster care are African American.

Of course it''s all very far in the future for me as well. But honestly, when I see it written out like that, when I''m very honest most of the reasons you listed in favor of adoption seem very superficial. stretch marks? Come on, that is a very small price to pay. I would add to your pro-adoption list: -The joy of knowing you''re giving a child a gift,...
