More Families Are Now Into Child Adoption

Feb 25, 2008
Most will agree that children are a great blessing. However, some couples are unable to conceive. Still other couples elect not to go through the birthing process and instead turn to child adoption as their method for having a family.

They believe that helping children already in this world is more important than bringing forth a new life. They are to be commended for their work towards giving children who have been abandoned or orphaned, a chance to have a real family, and a life filled with love and hope.

The adoptive family unit has garnered a huge amount of media attention in the past year. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's adoption of two children, each from different countries, has fueled a surge in popularity and awareness for the plight of orphaned and abandoned children.

Madonna was another superstar looking to adopt a child in need of a family. Though this seems to be a trend in Hollywood, adoptions have been occurring for thousands of years.

There is no such thing as free adoptions, Virginia. Santa Clause did not leave that under the tree this year. If he did, then there would not be a single kid left in this world who wouldn't be part of a family, filled with loving, caring parents.

The child adoption process is very expensive and many couples cannot afford the court fees, agency fees and the fees for attorneys and travel. This is especially true of foreign adoptions, where one of the adoptive family members must travel to that country at least once.

State adoptions are fairly common for the average infertile couple because it usually allows them to be foster parents first. Some families regularly foster children whom they later fully embrace though foster care adoptions. This is a true blessing for those children who may have been abused or who have physical handicaps.

It takes a special person to be a foster parent, and those children lucky enough to be placed with them are truly grateful. The foster parents looking to adopt their foster kid believe they are the ones most grateful for the child or children who have come into their lives.

The world would be a great place if no kid had to go to bed hungry. If every child were loved and cared for by people who truly treasured them, then the world would be a greater place. There are people who are doing their part to make it better, and as more people look into child adoption, it gives another child a chance at a better life.
