A: It's not really possible to tell you the pros and cons about adopting these children. That's for you to decide, but it's really not all that hard to figure out. Adopting them would make them your children in every sense of the word except biologically, with all the joys, responsibilities, and heartbreaks parents enjoy and suffer with their children. If that's not what you want, then you probably shoudn't adopt them.
