Yes I would.

I would do all the psychotherapy first though.

If I was planning to adopt, that wouldn't change my mind. But I'd never adopt a kid.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/22/06 - 12:33:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah I would.

Definately.
'Cause I could partially relate with the kid. Well, does a drunk girl at a party taking me into a room to "talk" and then end up trying to undress me (ewww girls :P) count as sexual abuse?

prolly not..hmm.

16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/22/06 - 12:37:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Honestly, no. I can't relate to them at all.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/22/06 - 4:54:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
its not just the girls, if there was a boy who was molestered, he would be a basket case. which reminds me of all these sick teachers out there.

I don't know, but this question kind of takes the children as goods, and not humans. Tarnished, no thanks! I want a brand new one!

To answer it, I don't know. Probably if I had a connection with the child and am willing to take up the responsibility of bringing it up.

Yeah, that's pretty much the point.
Why get a soiled dirty child when you can get a clean one? And preferably a baby too.....and preferably pretty too. Do they also come with a warranty?

Point is, YOU can choose.

If I wanted to adopt a child, his/her having been sexually abused would make no difference. If anything, it would make me more inclined to take that child - I'd want to help him/her.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/22/06 - 7:47:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
If I was going to adopt, I wouldn't see a reason not to.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/22/06 - 11:11:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
i would adopt a boy only. but yeah i guess i might if they wern't to disturbed.

Exactly.

It'd be pretty mean to deny a child if you found out that they were sexually abused.q
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/23/06 - 10:01:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
If I wanted to adopt, that would not be a deterrent in any way.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/23/06 - 10:02:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
It depends on how bad he abused.

That is by far the most rediculous thing i have ever heard. Because a child goes through something tramatic they are no longer worthy of peoples love? Their dirty! WTF! What the hell kind of thing is that to say?!!!

16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/23/06 - 11:15:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, they need love and support like anyone else. In fact, they probably need more.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/24/06 - 8:22:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
They're going to develop enough problems if I adopt them anyway. That last thing they need is to walk in to my life with a 7 pc. Samsonite collection of baggage.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/24/06 - 8:23:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
What the f**k? Can we post MORE disturbing photos in the questions?
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/24/06 - 10:13:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
If I were going to adopt, absolutely. I'd probably be more inclined to adopt a child who had been sexually abused, especially if I felt there were in immediate danger.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/24/06 - 10:21:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
ehhh as much as I would feel sorry for'm,
I prolly woulnd't want that can of worms in my house
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/24/06 - 1:14:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
If I had chosen to adopt a kid, the fact that they were abused in the past wouldn't alter my decision. It would make me want to help them and give them a good home.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/24/06 - 1:18:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
Wow, that's a good question.
There'd have to be a connection between myself and the child, no matter how f'ed up they are.

Damn straight.

16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/24/06 - 1:47:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's a big undertaking. Sexual abuse follows you the rest of your life. I think I would do it anyways because the kid will need somewhere safe and I could provide it.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/24/06 - 8:38:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
the fact that the child was sexually abused would be all the more reason for me to want to adopt them. i would really want to help them and try to change their lives around.
