What factors should I consider when thinking about adoption?

Consider Your Own Situation

Using the Internet is a great way to research options and information when it comes to deciding which type of adoption you want to go with, whether you use an agency or whether you want to attempt a private adoption. Adoption information can be found on websites as well as through local agencies to aid in your search for a child to become a part of your family. Some factors to consider when beginning this journey are your age and health, your financial status, the costs associated with adoption, your marital status; and even the health and background of the child or children you're hoping to adopt. One possibility to consider is an international adoption. There are several countries that have open adoption policies at this time, allowing people from other countries to adopt abandoned or orphaned children. Another factor to consider when thinking about adoption is your current family structure. Many times a loving home, no matter how big, is preferential for a child without any family rather than having a child remain in foster care or under government or state care.
