Child Adoption

Adoption has been around for as long as there have been people, but as time has progressed, so have the rights and legal actions of becoming an adoptive parent. When adoption originated it wasn't like what it is today. Often times children who were orphaned or abandoned were sold as slaves for other families. More modernized adoption began in the 1850's when war left thousands of children homeless. Friends or family members of homeless children would take them in and nurture them as their own, it wasn't until more recently that states provided laws about adopting children.
Today, adoption is anytime that a person who is not the biological parent of a child becomes the legal caretaker of them through the adoption process. There are many reasons that people turn to adoption, a lot of children in adoptive situations come from a broken home. This may mean the parents were too young to raise them, abusive, addicts, or many other reasons. Some children are placed in adoption when their families are too large to provide proper care for another child.
This guide will educate you on not only why people adopt but also why they may give a child up for adoption as well as what to expect during an adoption. You will also be provided with information on how to start the adoption process, what to know, what is expected of you and tips to provide a wonderful transition in your family as you adopt your newest member.
