If you wanted to have children and had trouble conceiving, would you be more likely to consider IVF, surrogacy, or adoption, and why?
I would most definitely choose adoption. There are so many kids out there already waiting for a family of their own. Rather than spend tons of money on medical procedures that may not even work, I would prefer to adopt. I personally feel quite strongly about adoption... My younger brother is adopted, and although there were difficult times, I love him very much and his unique situation helped make me the person I am today. My parents are very good people and I admire them so much for making the decision to adopt. It is something that I intend to do in the future, whether I am able to bear children or not. Being the best mom possible is more important to me than passing on my bloodline.
