The only reason I feel having one child is not good is because I strongly believe in the benefit of having siblings, even just one.

I think two people are entitled to produce two biological children, period. I think the government should give you a deduction for the first child, take it away for the second child and tax the hell out of you for subsequent children

I could argue there are just as many benefits to having no siblings. I can't think of how my life was negatively impacted by not having siblings.
|It seems to me that the most crucial thing in terms of lowering your impact is to be a trendsetter when it comes to lifestyle. Your choices affect others' choices, and this way you initiate the reduction in size of the average footprint. One visible person driving a hybrid car around town sparks discussion and suggests to other drivers that hybrid cars are an option. Soon you've got 20 hybrid cars rolling around, and hopefully soon they replace SUV's as the status symbol of choice. One vegetarian in a high school could influence 5 other kids to go veggie, who would all go off to different colleges and influence 5 more each, and so on.|

Dh and I have talked about adoptiong a child/ren from India and we've looked into it on the web. It seems very expensive and out of our reach. I'd love to see how others deal with this.

Did anyone see Oprah yesterday? Or the Adoption show on the Hallmark channel? Great stuff!!!!

The show didn't happen to mention breastfeeding adopted children, did it? Just curious.

|Loving families who tread lightly, regardless of shape, color or size are the best for the world! Families that take care of each other and are able to take care of each other make better impacts on society. Entities and organizations who seek to dictate the size of a family can better serve the environment in more meaningful ways.|
|the world has a purpose, and every being in it has a purpose. Every single person has a UNIQUE purpose that cannot be fulfilled by anyone else, so having "another" child is not about another child. It is not like having "another" pair of jeans when I already own jeans and they still fit. (I'm sorry if this is a grotesque example) It is about giving the world a completely new way to fulfill the purpose for which it was created.|

. The thought that Government would dictate family size is no different in my mind than the forced sterilizations that went on in last century
