International Adoption Advantages
One of the most popular arguments against international adoption is those that bemoan the condition of America’s own orphaned children. While this is a sad and terrible plight, it’s essential to understand that not all couples or families adopt out of a sense of benevolence or in an effort to stamp out pain or starvation. One of the number one reasons that couples adopt overseas is because they are desperately seeking an infant – a rare jewel in the American adoption system.
Thousands Versus Millions
Babies are difficult to adopt in America for a number of reasons, including large family structures where grandparent, aunts and uncles or siblings are willing to raise children in their infancy, birth-mothers who ultimately back out of the adoption process, not to mention the ease of access to birth control and pregnancy terminations here in the US.
