Mega Adoptive Family Highlights

Highlights from February 10, 2010 Creating a Family radio show

I’ve always been fascinated with large families. We talked with three moms of large (8+) families that have been formed in part by adoption. How in the world do they do it?

  • How do they decide whether a prospective new child would be a good fit with their family?
  • How long does it take for the family to assimilate a new member.
  • When adopting an older child, how long before you feel like the mother rather than the babysitter or aunt?
  • How do they afford to feed and raise all those kids? Budgeting and menu tips.
  • How has the decision to adopt affected the biological kids in the family?
  • Do you recommend adopting out of birth order?
  • Are their disadvantages to being a very large family?
  • Are you able to find time for each child individually?
  • How do you nurture your relationship with your spouse?
  • Do the older children in the family have to take on a great deal of responsibility for the younger children?
  • Have you experienced attachment issues in your adoptions?
