It's one of life's fair treaties. It gives hope and integrity to the families who weren't fortunate to conceive; moreover, it changes the life of the child forever mostly positively. That's why many people support adoption worldwide. Adoption is basically the process whereby a person or a family decide to take the responsibility of a child and take care of him as parents although their not his biological ones, from childhood all the way to adulthood. Adoption nowadays is quiet different, because it basically fixes all of the homeless, neglected, abused and runaway children problems and also parents who have problems giving birth.
There are many reasons why birthparents choose adoption. Many singles mothers feel their child could benefit from having two stable parents, so they choose to put their child up for adoption. Some couples choose to put their child up for adoption because they feel they don’t have the financial resources to raise a child. Others feel they are too young or their education needs to come before children so they opt to put their child up for adoption (3). There are relatively few legal restrictions on who may adopt.
Instead, telling their parents so they can be supported by them. And if it?s impossible to talk to their parents let?s encourage them to talk to a trusted adult such as a relative or a friend. We should also let them know that there are more options to their dilemma other than abortion. I know it?s not easy for someone to get pregnant against her will, but the unborn child has also the right to live. If the mother does not want to keep her baby, she can give it for adoption.
It allows the birth parents to keep in contact with the adoptive parents and the child throughout their life. When having an open adoption the child will know that they were not abandoned and are cared for more than they would have been. You should choose Open Adoption because if parents were not able to afford having a baby they put it up for adoption, giving the child a better life but wanting to be apart of it still. Not only can that but the reason for giving the child up, it could be for many other reasons. For example, in doing my research on adoption I came across a mother who was raped and was sent away by her family so she could not “shame” them.
'Basically, what adoption meant, and still means, is that someone (the adoptive couple) is promising to assume all responsibilities for taking care of someone else' (Powledge 4). How the adoptive parents go about raising the child is completely up to them. Although there are many different types of families in today's society, one special kind of family that has become more and more common are the families created through adoption. There are various and somewhat difficult processes and laws concerning adoption. New laws are being created year after year to make this process easier and the outcome positive.
Adoption may be a very hard choice for most birth mothers. Giving up a child is a very hard choice but in some circumstances it is the right option for the birth mother. For a woman who may not be ready mentally, financially, or physically care for a child adoption is a great choice. Adoption grants the birth mother a second chance at fulfilling her future goals, while ensuring that her child will be raised in a home with a loving family who have always dreamed of having children (Birth Mother Benefits).

The process of adoption can take anywhere from quite a few months to several years. You must connect with adoption agencies, complete home studies, submit important documents, and fill out possibly endless amounts of paperwork. The financial implications can also be quite large for the different required services to become an adoptive family. Also, when adopting, you don 't always know what you are getting yourself into. What health or behavioral issues will my new child have?
People traditionally know the women should take their husbands name and pass on the male surname to their children. Even though she is a “feminist”, “this is not a feminist issue for me. It is a family one.” (65). Breslin stated, “We decided, after thinking it through, that tradition works for us – having the same name is part of the shared identity we treasure.” (66). In addition, she wants to have the symbol of togetherness by sharing the same surname.
Leela grew up in an orphanage and all she wanted to be is in a family with people that loved her. Many children want the same thing that Leela wanted. If a child does get picked to live with the person that is choosing them, the child has to feel like the person that is choosing them is the best person in the world. I saw “The Three Stooges” and Teddy was chosen, he did not look as if he trusted the people that were choosing them. Later in the movie it was revealed that the parents were very abusive to Teddy because at a very young age, Teddy was sent to a military school because his parents did not like them.
If she would have done that, a family who either could not have children, or just liked the idea of adoption, could have adopted the child. There are various reasons why people decide to adopt. Some say adoption is the best thing for certain children or parents and many successful stories prove it to be true. However there are also negative outcomes of adoption. Negative or positive outcomes can affect the adoptive parents, the adoptees, and even the birth parents.
