Answer My Son is now 18 and I still worry and love him as much as the day he was born. And I will always consider him my son.
How do birth defects affect children being adopted Does their condition need to be better before being adopted or can they can be adopted as is?
Answer Answer Any child can be adopted, but if you are going to adopt a child who has some sort of defect, make darned good and sure you are ready for such a… responsibility as you wouldn't want to break this child's heart would you. Once you have been accepted for adoption it's not like going to a center and getting a dog, you can't take that child back so make sure you know what you are getting into before you make that kind of move.
They will probally always be curious about their past but still love the parents that they have eventhough they may try to hunt for their original parents. I ADORE my adoptiv…e parents, they are the loveliest, kindest people you could ever meet, i feel very lucky but despite all of this, i will always wonder what life would have been like. I Know that i couldn't have dreamed for nicer parents :)
International adoption is growing fast. The places where a lot of adoptions are taking place are China, Russia, and African Countries (Etheopia)
This is an opinion question. Here is my opinion: To give them the legal status of natural children and thus the security that comes with this status.To prevent others with le…gal claims from taking them away from their adoptive parents.It allows people who could otherwise have no children to have children of their own Because the adoptive parents want to see them as their own children. Maybe others will add to this list.
There are some general things but here is some facts I found. Many years ago, only married couples were permitted to adopt. Single people and homosexual couples were exclude…d as a matter of course, without evaluation of their individual merits as potential parents. Today, a wider spectrum of prospective parents is considered eligible to adopt, although the process is still easier for some people than for others.conventional married couples are considered the best candidates for becoming adoptive parents. The reasoning behind this is sound, if a bit socially backwards. Married couples are considered more stable and committed to one another, thus more capable of being good, consistent parents than are unmarried people. Also Some agencies set minimum age requirements for adoption, (25 years of age or older), and many have maximum age requirements (45 or 50 years of age or younger). International adoptions may also have age restrictions or requirements as well. These age restrictions should be considered when deciding from which countries it is appropriate to pursue adoption. Finally, birth parents also often express age preferences, either for older or younger couples, which adoption agencies will attempt to honor as closely as possible. Adoption application procedures include a thorough background check. Both legal and financial issues are examined. Any past legal or financial issues that become known because of this check may restrict a couple from adopting. The severity and length of time of past legal convictions (such as drug or alcohol convictions) is considered in making adoption decisions; any serious offense is typically enough to halt the process entirely. For example, no one previously convicted as a sexual offender is allowed to adopt children. Those who pursue domestic adoption with a felony offense on their record will face a long, hard road. Most agencies will not consider anyone with serious convictions due to the possible liability risks that the agency could face if harm later comes to the child. Those with a felony conviction will not be authorized to adopt internationally, per U.S. regulations. Past or present financial problems can also make the adoption process difficult. A history of bankruptcy, large amounts of debt, or any failure to make child support payments can negatively affect an application. Agencies are not looking for only wealthy families to adopt, but they do want to make sure that parents have the financial stability to provide for a child.

If your husband is paying child support for his children but the kids are in fostercare and in the process of being adopted will he still have to pay child support after they get adopted?
Normally, after children are adopted out, a person no longer pays child support. Still, the court or law decides. This is read by 50 states and nearly 200 countries. In your s…ituation, who knows? Why isn't he challenging for custody? see links below
No, Hitler never adopted any children.
yes, i believe they should since the parents can't stop abusing the children they should be put into a place where they will be well cared for.
She said that she and her husband tried for a baby, but it never happened, I think she got quite depressed about it, so decided to adopt instead.
When the kid grows up the seniors could die and he will go right back to the orphanage. It would be hard for seniors to take care or a child
I gave my children up for adoption to have a better life how do i get over it and stop being so sad I'm a father.?
this is something you will probably never get over. and unfortunately it will probably always hurt. you for a bond with children unlike any other. it's hard to just let go. yo…u should definitely talk to someone about this.
Children should be told about their adoption even before they are able to verbally communicate. Conversations about adoption should be positive, natural, and factual and commu…nicated in a way that recognizes the child developmental stage. What is said at 2 is going to be much different than what is shared at 16. As an adoptive parent and an adoption specialist, I recall feeding my son in his high chair and practicing what I would say when he was older. This helped me feel comfortable with the conversation while I figured out what and how I would tell him. He is now 3 and is able to tell me that he was in Sarah's tummy, that Sarah loved him, that Sarah was with him at the hospital when he was born. He also asks me to tell him about when Daddy and I first saw him. That has become his "birth story" and he loves hearing it. His questions are small right now and someday they will be much more complicated. But we have laid the groundwork for our conversations to be honest and open. I hope by talking about it openly, he won't worry about hurting our feelings or wondering where we stand or if this is an open topic of conversation. If you wait to tell your child at that "right" age, at each stage you might find reasons why now isn't the right time. And then, before you know it, your child is 8...9...10. So, you will be nervous, you might sit your child down on the couch with a serious look on your face, your child will think something is wrong, he or she will be worried. This definitely sets a different tone and sends a message like, "Adoption is not a good thing" or "We don't really want to talk about it." Children pick up on these cues from their parents and as they get older they won't feel comfortable talking about it. It's not that they won't think about it...they will. You just won't be privy to those thoughts and feelings. That can be an emotionally difficult thing for an adoptee. So, long explanation but short answer: Tell your child as early as possible!!!
adoptive parents is like a new mother and father is are adopted don't feel that your adoptive parents are taking over your birth parents.... foster carers get a lot of money t…o look after you but adoptive parents only get the money normal parents have e.g, child benefits hope this information helps you xx
Not really. Not unless the parent that adopts the child is abusive in a way. CHILD ABUSE WAY! So not really. ;) Vote for the smile babby!
You can adopt more than once, yes.
