It's a huge responsibility to give a baby a home. Is it something you've ever considered doing?

We took to Facebook and Twitter and asked whether they've ever considered adoption. Here are their responses.

Yes. I'd at least like to foster one day, but convincing the hubby is another matter. - @TheCreativePot

Everyday! I always said that once our youngest biological kid is 2, we'll hopefully start the process. - @momallott

I have thought about it. In fact, my colleague is in the process of adopting, it's so exciting! But there are lots of hoops to jump and many factors to consider. - Tanya Daniels

I have adopted, have a beautiful 2 year old son Tyler, we got him when he was 12 weeks. We now waiting for a sister but taking a little longer than he did. The best thing anyone could go is give a home to a child who doesn't have one! - Kim Plakonouris Kruger

Yes! Ever since I can remember. I have a boy of 4 and still think about it. - Refiloe Bahumi
