Understanding Adoption


Adoption is an alternative way to provide a child the security and resources to develop into a happy and successful person. For many, this is accomplished by legally transferring parenting responsibilities from birth parents to adoptive parents.

 

Adoption can be a very beneficial option for you if you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. In fact, adoption can help you to fulfill your life dreams, pursue your education, begin a career, travel, deepen your relationships and enjoy life as a mature adult woman. It is a very kind and generous act which also allows a child to be placed in a family that is prepared and eager to share their hearts and home forever.
