Are you Considering Adoption?


Adoption is God’s gifts and a wonderful process which makes family complete. Adoption is like a dream come true for adoptive parents. However, adoption is not a child’s play. You should know a lot of things like adoption procedure, adoption laws, age limit for adoption etc; if you decide to adopt a child. Read on if you are considering adoption.


It was very difficult for Meena to digest the fact that she cannot conceive. But her husband supported her a lot and made her understand that this was not the end of the world. He said “all women who can give birth are lucky”. “But you are luckier than them as you will become mother without giving birth”

Bringing an adopted child home is like starting a new life. Adoption is God’s gift to all children less couples. The adopted child is like a bundle of joy. The child brings-in all the missing happiness and makes the family complete. However, adoption is not a child’s play. If you are considering adoption you need to do a proper homework of following things. Read on if you are considering adoption.


Are you Ready for Adoption?

You need to first discuss with your partner if he or she is ready to adopt a child or not. If you are married, you need to take this decision with your partner. The decision of adopting a child should be taken as a couple. If you think that your partner is not ready for adoption, you must give him or her some time. Do not take a hasty decision. Some couples may withdraw their decision of adopting a child under pressure of their parents or in-laws. However, a couple should think about their own happiness and should not wait for a longer time.


Age Limit for Adoption

There is a particular age limit for adoption. You need to acquire knowledge about such things if you want to consider adoption. Find out if there is any age-limit for adopting a child. Generally, parents between age group of 25 to 45 are allowed to adopt. However, the age limit may differ from one adoption agency to other and one country to other.


Legal Adoption

It is always advisable to consider a legal adoption. Private adoption can be very risky. Remember that only adoptive parents are at risk while considering a private adoption. There are many disadvantages of private adoption. For example; the biological parents may agree to give-up the child for adoption at one point of time. However, at another point of time they may refuse to do so. Therefore, you should only consider legal adoption as legally adopted baby is only yours and nobody can take the baby away from you.


Talk to Adoptive Parents

To make your journey of adoption simple, you can talk to adoptive parents. Learn about their experiences and try to analyze which steps you need to take to begin your journey of adoption. Join the community of adoptive parents through internet on social networking sites. Share and discuss the topics related to adoption on discussion forums.


Adoption Agencies

Once you take final decision of adopting a child, you should contact the nearest and government recognised adoption agency. You should not trust random people or random agencies for adopting a child as such people can put you in lot of trouble. You should only trust the government recognised adoption agencies.  


Adoption Counseling 

Once you choose an adoption agency, you can attend the counseling sessions conducted by social workers working at such adoption agencies. Adoption agencies also conduct lot of seminars and workshops for adoptive parents. It will help you a lot if you attend such seminars and workshops.


Adoption Laws

You need to understand the adoption laws as well. Just like adoption procedure, adoption laws can also differ from country to country or according to the religion. You should have a proper understanding about the adoption laws.


Adoption Process

Always choose a legal adoption process. The process of in-country adoption is different from international adoption. The procedure of in-country adoption includes the following steps like visiting adoption agency, documentation and registration, home study and counseling, referral of the child, acceptance of the child, filing the petition, pre-adoption foster care, court hearing, court order and follow-up.

In this way you need to do proper planning before you start your adoption journey. However, the most important thing which you should keep in mind is that adoption should happen only through government recognised adoption agency.
