Adoption is a great process that allows a person to become a parent. There are millions of children throughout the world who are waiting to be adopted. In President Trump’s recent speech, he mentioned a police officer who adopted a baby who was impacted by drugs.
There are some people who decide to take drugs while being pregnant. This causes a multitude of issues in the developing fetus. Once the baby is born, there are various issues that parents have to deal with. In this particular story, the mother did not want to take care of the baby. A local police officer decided to adopt the baby. This story made national news because it touched the hearts of so many people.
The Cost of Adoption
One of the reasons that more people do not adopt children is the financial cost. There are tax credits that parents can take advantage of, but these tax credits do not cover the entire cost of the adoption process. There are many government leaders who want to improve the adoption process. It takes several years for the adoption process to finish.
Why Adoption Matters
With millions of children around the world without a home, adoption is a great way for a person to make a positive impact in the world. Adoption is the perfect way to offer a child a loving and supportive home. There are millions of people who owe their success in life to their adoptive parents.
Going through the adoption process is hard. In some cases, the entire process can take years. In the coming years, many people hope that the adoption process is streamlined.
In a recent adoption article published by the New York Times, an adoptive parent discussed the nature of what he called “adoption culture” and its impact on the lives of adopted children. In the article, the adoptive father suggested that the adoption of unwanted children was not as beneficial to the adoptive children as “white, privileged” parents assumed it was. He also suggested that those interested in adoption should seek to implement political structures that would support mothers who wanted to keep their unborn children alive but were underprivileged and were looking into adoption.
This parent’s response to American citizens who desired to adopt children was recently highlighted as a way the country’s politically correct ideology impacts otherwise logical and compassionate world systems. Not a decade ago, most Americans understood the fact that adoption was a necessary and beneficial act of love toward children who have already been given away by their biological parents. The act of adoption generally shows love and support, not only for the adopted children, but for families who felt unprepared to raise a child or end his or her life unjustly. One author pointed out that this article reflects the impact of the social justice warrior thought process on basic compassionate functions. Instead of praising families who wished to care for children who are not their own, this adoptive parent wrote an article condemning those families for exercising their privileged by daring to believe that the circumstances of the adoptive home would be better than the circumstances of the child’s previous home.
The author discussing this article pointed out that adoptive parents should actually review the facts of their potential child’s circumstance before rushing to make decisions using only feelings, as this article’s contributor did. According to adoption statistics, most children who are adopted in the United States do, in fact, leave a home that is inferior in income, education levels, and social environment, to the home of their adoptive parents.
