  • I'm going with "ugh" too.  I have seven dogs and people look askance at me. Every one of them is loved and very well-cared for, but people who don't know me well joke about hoarding.  <img src="http://community.thebump.com/cs/emoticons/emotion-6

  • I wondered what you all thought about this too. I do agree that their kids seem happy, healthy and semi-well adjusted so I can't fault them for wanting more children. Especially if they are willing to look at a special needs adoption. I would probably

  • They're looking to welcome a child into their family who otherwise wouldn't have a family. They're already under public scrutiny with a reality show- I would be surprised if the homestudy uncovered any skeletons in the closet.

  • I don't like them. There, I said it.

  • Hmm...I don't know...I don't really watch the show or know too much about them, but if they want to help a child by adopting, I'd say "go for it!" :)

    I'm a dance studio owner, writer, cat mommy, and adventuress who is married to the man of her dreams. My husband and I have had a long-time dream to adopt and it's happening in a way that we didn't quite anticipate. But, like any move of God, it's turning out way better than we expected. We'd love for you to follow our story at www.kirstenkline.com!
