Do You Know The Amercian Adoptions Process ?

Feb 27, 2008
You have probably seen the media circus surrounding some celebrities as they have undergone a Cambodian or Africa adoption, but what about those children that are here in the United States? Is there a reason why some people look to adopting from a foreign country versus going through the American adoptions process? There is a step-by-step process that must occur in order for a child to be placed with an adoptive family, and you need to know the basics of what to expect.

Before you apply to be an adoptive family, you need to take a really careful look at your finances, because adoptions cost money. As well, your health and your living conditions are important. What type of life do you lead? Do you have the type of lifestyle that is conducive to raising a child?

These may seem like biased questions considering the amount of abusive parents who neglect their own children for their own pursuits of happiness, but you will be scrutinized and evaluated. The court system cannot stop someone from procreating but they can stop someone from adopting.

Race might not seem like an important issue with you but it can make the difference in a child's life. Transracial adoptions happen all of the time, but you have to know how your family is going to react to someone of another race, because it is important for the child.

For American adoptions, a home study is conducted to see how the family members interact with one another and how they live day-to-day. This is an easy but time consuming process that will not be as bad as you think. They are not there to judge, simply to observe.

The final obstacle is going to be your wallet. After all of the paperwork is complete and you have read everything about adoptions that you possibly can, you are going to have to pay for the adoption process. You will have to pay for an adoption attorney, any paperwork fees, and all court costs. You may also have to reimburse part of the birth mother's medical expenses depending on the type of agreement you have.

American adoptions are a great solution to finding homes for the vast number of children left in the foster care system. These children need loving homes and hopefully you can provide one with a safe, nurturing and loving environment.

Nothing will quite compare to the first moment when you meet your child. It will be a memory that lasts in your mind forever. Hold on to that thought and look forward to that dream while you are going through the adoption process.
