Have you considered adoption? Twenty-four percent of Americans will consider adopting a child of some age, at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, only two percent will actually follow through. Why is that? For most people, adoption is not something they talk about on a daily basis. In addition, there are many stereotypes and myths surrounding adoption that sometimes “put people off”. Those that do follow through with adoption, in spite of the well-meaning words of caution, often find that they do not even know where to start. Much information is either unreliable or scant.
We want to help you on your journey to adoption. Even if you’re only gathering information right now and have yet to commit to anything, we want to make sure the information you receive is reliable. This is why we offer our adoptive parents as many resources as possible. We want to keep you informed regarding issues and help guide you through the process.
Below are several articles. This information is relevant whether you are only considering adoption, in the middle of your journey, or approaching the finish line. If you have any specific questions, please contact us at 662.842.6752. You might also consider joining us for our monthly “Ask and Eat” workshops. At these events, you will not only will you get answers to your adoption questions, but you’ll also get a chance to share a meal with other families that are considering adoption.
