sons and daughters



Shalom, a couple who have problems having children due to medical complications, this couple adopting a son and a daughter will be fulfilling the mitzvah of having 2 children a boy and a girl?


Although it is not fulfilling the mitzva in the general way, however in a certain ways, and according to some poskim it is considered by shomayim to have birthed them. The gemora says that a person that raises an orphan in his home is considered to have bore him.   See the following article, which expands on this topic.
