Matt Dallas and hubby Blue Hamilton are granted a wonderful Christmas gift…a celebrity baby! The pair recently adopted a little boy, sharing the great news on video December 22, according to UsMagazine.com. The 11-minute clip was named “Welcome to Our Pride,” and it shows the cheery couple sitting in front of a fireplace. Not much later, the celebrity couple’s new son Crow jumps into the arms of his fathers. Dallas explains how once they saw the little boy, they knew he was to be theirs.

Celebrity babies may be born to you, or someone else if you adopt. What are some ways to know adoption is for you?

Cupid’s Advice:

It is pretty stressful if you don’t know whether to adopt or not. Cupid has tips to let you know if adoption is for you:

1. Handling commitments: If you are ready to deal with a huge commitment, then adoption may be for you. Your time will no longer be your own, and you realize things will not be the same.

2. Adopting a stranger: If you want to skip the experience of pregnancy and labor, adoption can be an option. You have to deal with knowing that this child will not share the same genes as you, and if this fact alone doesn’t bother you then go for it!

3. Age and culture: Having a good mind about what direction you want to go in is also a good sign that adoption may be for you. Age plays an important factor, as well as culture. Do you want to raise a newborn, or a preteen? Would you like to adopt a child of your own race, or does race not matter?

Adoption can be a lengthy process, with many things to consider in between. What factors would be important to you? Comment below.
