shop=charity is not what you want! Please read the wiki?

It says "selling a mixture of second hand goods, donated by the public. 
eg books, clothing, toys, furniture. May also sell some new products, eg 
confectionery, crafts."

+1 for the intention of the tag.

Trivial nit picking - this is not a rejection. Nor a compliant. Unlike 
some I would not reject a proposal due to the wording!

"/Definition: A way to tag places where prospective parents can adopt 
This should be the definition of what you want to tag...

Better might be: "Definition: A place where prospective parent/s may 
adopt a child or children"

"/Applies to///

/The proposed tag //office 
be used on either: /


  * /nodes (in which case the node should be placed near the middle of
    the building in which the adoption agency is contained)

This assumes that the adoption agency occupies the whole thing. If the 
adoption agency only occupies a section of the building?

Better might be: nodes (the node should be placed in the centre of the 
area occupied by the adoption agency)

============================================== children vs adult
I think an 'adult' cannot be 'adopted' - they are legally independent - 
not subject to guardianship by parenting.  Again this is just a note - 
for information and consideration by those concerned.
