    I originally had no interest in adopting any children because I figured it would be like getting married- the NPC just becomes an uninteresting wooden puppet that does the same predictable things over and over. They become a game mechanic instead of a character in a larger story.

    However, while running around Whiterun, I met Lucia and I felt sorry for her living alone and begging for money. She seemed sad up until I told her I would adopt her. Now she lives in Breezehome with myself and Ysolda and when she told me I could have anything out of her personal chest that I wanted, I immediately thought, "No, those are yours things." That's when I realized she wasn't just a game mechanic to me.

    You have no idea how relieved I am to hear I am not the only person who doesn't raid her kids chest for goodies because they belong to her.

    Mind you, some of the stuff I see in there when I open it to see if old gifts are still there make my hair stand on end. I found six sabrecat teeth and some troll fat in there once. And did she seriously just find a silver sapphire necklace just lying around unclaimed?

    One time I looked in my child's chest, and found 6 hawk beaks, and I was like: "How the heck did she get those! I can't even find any!!!" o_O

    I started a story of rather, no memory of adopting a kid, but rather having one with my wife.

    As a breton I made my way to markarth and married senna. I "Found" my family had an unused house in falkreath which I took over, a year later we had blaise, he is now 10, yet me and senna dont show any signs of aging, due to her being devote of dibella and me also. but not knowing of me being dragonborn yet too. :p

    In real life you have annoying kids as well. It's just realistic. Not every child has good manners - especially not when they are living on the streets and there's no parent to correct them.

    Well Babette seems to make it work...though I suppose being an immortal assassin who's immune to poison helps her hold her own.

    I'm not sure about the second one, but I know I MUST adopt Sofie. Just read the trivia about her on the wiki. The stories she's compared to are heartbreaking! How do you do a crying emoticon?

    Just ran past her. She said, "Oh, I'm so cold. Nobody bought any flowers today."

    Damn you Heartfire! Damn you!

    Sophie was selling flowers in Windhelm after I brought victory for the Empire. Bought a flower then raced to the steward and bought the children's room; raced back to her and she smiled like nothing else.
    Lucia was begging in the streets of Whiterun; looked so alone, now they have mothers and sisters.
    Had their first fight yesterday; something about "You smell worse than a Hagraven."

    I adopted Sophie and Blaise. I was so disappointed with how little interaction there is with them.Same thing with the spouses. It gets a bit boring, and often annoying hearing them repeat the same couple of phrases.

    My thief adopted Lucia. She asked where is she going to live. I said, Riften. She said, "Oh." Later in Riften, "She said, "There are scary people living here, mommy." she does like Mara temple. Maybe, we'll build a country house...

    Make sure it isn't the one in Morthal. Whenever I move Lucia there she won't shut up about how scary the place is and monsters in the swamp.
