    I can’t speak for everyone, but if I decide to raise kids, I’ll adopt. I’d rather help someone who’s already here and don’t want to pass on my genetics. I also wouldn’t have to destroy my body with pregnancy.

    But some people do it because they’re infertile, think the world is overpopulated, etc.

    The world is already very over populated. Might be something to look into.

    Because they don't want to go through the 9 months of pain or are too busy for that or think that there are already so many children in this world looking for parental love so they adopt one instead of giving birth to one

    Because the women is usually too old to have her own, she'd be usually pushing 39. It's like that in all cases. Very rarely some one who can have kids would adopt.

    If the kids don't turn out so well, the parents have the excuse that

    they did what they could but couldn't overcome bad genes.

    I'm sure there must be many reasons why but, lets take two that kinda stand out. The woman can't get pregnant or, the man is shooting blanks. Its a good thing to adopt, and I take my hat orf to the people who do it. ;-)

    Many women can't have kids for many reasons, Or they adopt late in life.

    Because they can't due to illness, infertility, STDs etc.
