We all know that even during the old days, child adoption has been a common practice and it has increased in popularity even until today. Adopting kids is not only appealing for those parents who cannot have their own kids, but there are also those parents who have biological children still wants to adopt kids.
For every person or parents, they have different reasons why they chose to adopt a child. In most cases, parents who are unable to have children on their own take in orphan for them to fill in the void in their life and have a complete family of their own. There are also others who choose to adopt even if they have they ability of have kids of their own simply because for humanitarian reasons as well as be able to provide the needs of the orphan child.
The reason will not matter, what is important is that the foster homes and adoption agencies will be able to determine whether the person or the couple is able to provide for the child as well as if they are fit to adopt a child.
It is sad to know, that not every person or couple who wants to adopt a child can be qualified to become adoptive parents. For those foster parents, they are encouraged to do self-assessment whether the adoptive parents are fit physical, financially and emotional to take care and provide for the orphan child. In most cases, the foster parents are even asked the question, “Are you ready to take the emotional baggage or the trauma that the orphaned child may be carrying due to his past?” or they will also be asked “How will you be able to handle the child who has trust issued or they feel rejected?” “Do you have children whether biological or adopted?” “Are you sure that your children are ready for another addition to the family?”
This is not about discouraging adoptive parents who wants to adopt a child. You have to know that adopting a child is a fulfilling and wonderful experience. It is best for the adoptive parents to know what they need to do would greatly depend on the type of adoption they would actually choose.
There are actually 2 types of child adoption. International child adoption and the domestic child adoption are two kinds of child adoption. It is the geographical location that makes the two types different from the other. Cultural difference is the main challenge when you choose to go with the international adoption. If the orphan is less than a year old, then it will not be a problem.
