Adoption Myth #6: Adoptive parents can’t care for my child as well as I can

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on February 7, 2014

It is hard to imagine that there are over two million families right now who are waiting to become parents through adoption. They are prepared and educated on how to love a child that did not grow in their body, but rather in their heart.

More importantly, families at Lifetime Adoption are also ready to embrace you as well, to ensure that you know how much your child will be treasured, loved, cared for, and protected. It is normal to be worried about entrusting a child to strangers, but most women find that by the time that day comes, the chosen adoptive parents are no longer strangers, but rather friends with a shared love of a child.

In regards to safety, all families are required to have a thorough and complete background check that includes a home inspection, individual and joint interviews with a social worker, background clearances, character references, medical examinations, financial disclosures, and much more.

Adoptive parents today understand that an open adoption with ongoing contact can be the best choice for a child, if the birth mother desires that. They also understand that explaining to a child about adoption from the very beginning is vital in ensuring the child’s self-esteem and confidence in their heritage.

If you are looking for something specific in an adoptive family, such as race or geographical location, interests or hobbies, take a few moments to look at the waiting families with Lifetime Adoption.

You have the opportunity to speak with them or even meet them. In fact, you may speak with more than one family as you begin the journey to see if adoption is right for you.
