Question by  captainhall (25)

What should I be aware of if I am considering adopting Greek Orthodox children?

I don't know much about the Greek Orthodox church.

If you choose to adopt these children you should look into this religion a lot closer. If they are older and already practice the religion you are going to want to help them practice it. If they're young then you can teach them all about the religion they came from once they're older.

There\'s no such thing as \"Greek Orthodox children\"! They are children who have been born into a Greek orthodox community. You should adopt them, love them, and brainwash them into your own faith.  add a comment

Children who have been raised as Greek Orthodox, tend to speak yiddish. So learning a bit of there special language could be helpful in communicating better and making them feel more at home. Children often adapt better during adoptions when the adopting parents take the time out to learn more and intergrate some of the children's customs into the family.

I happen to be Greek Orthodox. It would be nice for them if you plan to stay involved in the church. Especially if they are older. The Greek Orthodox Church is a smaller church so it will be easier for them to make Greek friends.

Some of these groups require that before you can adopt their children you have to agree to raise the child in that faith so make sure you can do that.
