Have you considered foster-adoption?
My wife and I just adopted three beautiful little boys. Ages 4, 2 and 1. They are three brothers. There were no fees involved.
Yes, we've considered it and have a meeting this Thursday to begin state required MAPPS (parenting classes basically) classes.
The problem with adoption through a state is that most available children are much older, have from severe to mild physical and/or mental conditions. People, as selfish as it may sound, do not want to deal with serious conditions.
