Jameel, you are to have five biological children..I hope your wife is prepared.
On a very serious level we have no idea how many Muslim single mothers are in the US. Women who have been abandoned by their husbands. There are no statistics.
I see this as a failure of many Muslim communities in the US. And I believe we need to address the situation.
Many of the masjids that function in the US, do so with eyes always looking for the way things are done at home. But for many of us this is home. We have to find Islamic solutions to the problems facing Muslims here at home..not some exotic home. We have to rid ourselves of cultural biases and live in the specific biosphere we are dwelling in the present.
err... i want to have my own babies, hopefully; havent thought about adopting.
Furthermore, in Islam the children belong to the man, (not the woman) in case of divorce, so im not sure how things would work out.
adopting orphans is another matter, dependent upon finances.
NO EVERYONE I MEAN GET BABY FROM ORPHANAGE
