It says in entertainment news that Celine Dione and her husband conceived their recently born twins after 5 failed IVF attempts. I don't understand why after so many failed attempts they didn't just adopt. I guess because I don't understand the need to raise children that are biologically related to us. If she did have that need, why wasn't her 9 year old biological son enough for that so she could adopt after that? When I think of the number of older children in the foster and adoption system who may never find homes because no one wants an older child, it just doesn't make sense to me that a couple that is 42 and 68 would not want one of these older children. Why not give up on the emotionally devastating roller coaster of failed IVFs and open your heart and home to a child that needs your love right now?
Love is love. Why does it matter or mean more if the children you are loving are biologically related or not?
