National Adoption Day is celebrated on November 23, and November is National Adoption Month, so we want to mention some of the reasons you should consider adoption. For many people becoming a parent is a defining moment in life and adoption is a great option for making parenthood dreams a reality. Different people have different reasons for adopting a child.
1. To provide a child with a stable home and supportive parents.
There are more than 153 million children without a family around the world. Nearly 400,000 of them live in the United States, more than 100,000 of them are eligible for adoption. Many people decide to adopt to provide a child with unconditional parental love and stable home. Statistics show that children with stable home lives do better in school simply because they have the support they need.
2. To start a family.
Some circumstances prevent individuals and couples from conceiving a child naturally. Some couples would rather not start various medical treatments in order to create a family, so their first choice is adoption. Adoption is also a great option to start a family for LGBT couples and individuals who cannot conceive naturally. Very capable single parents can also be afforded the opportunity to start a family and experience the joy of parenthood.
3. To expand a family.
Some people choose adoption because they want a large family. They may have their biological children, but they still choose to adopt newborns and older children because they’ve always dreamt about a large family.
4. Parenthood can be a joy
People who are considering adoption want to become parents because they feel emotionally ready to parent a child. Parenthood is a tough job, but it’s also a very rewarding experience. Adoption will make your dreams of having a family come true. But, it also benefits birth parents who are not ready to become parents.
For some families, making a difference in the life of one child is enough of a reason
to adopt. The adoption community is growing day by day. If you decide to adopt, you can easily find other adoptive parents who are willing to help and motivate you to start your adoption journey.
