Is there demand for families who want children like us?
My husband and I have one 6-year-old child (who is technically my husband's step child). My husband is black/white mixed race British, I'm white contentinental european, our child is white continental european as well.
We'd like to have more children. The obvious route would be to have biological children, but I often hear very mixed messages about how children are looking for homes and have difficulty finding them (especially older ones, children with difficulties, BME,etc).
Of course, this doesn't seem to be true for young white healthy babies, but is true more for other demographics?
Essentially we'd be looking for 1-3 children (so happy with a sibling group) younger than our first child from any ethnic background without serious problems, small ones would be fine.
Now my question is are there such children who'd need parents or would we be effectively stealing them from other parents who don't have the biological route open to them? We certainly wouldn't be interested if the latter was the case, but are in the first.
So the only relevant factor for us is to give children a stable long term home who likely wouldn't be able to get one otherwise (or e.g. only split from their siblings). Given what we'd be looking for, is that the case or not?
