Parenting, the Raising of an Adopted Child
It is a fact that not everyone has the privilege of giving birth. The reasons behind this fact vary ranging from the very inability of siring viable off-springs to lack of interest due to some underlying factor such as career choices. Raising children, however, is not restricted to the population granted with the ability and will to procreate. As a result, laws have been passed to support interested parties acquire and raise children.
But what does it take to raise an adopted child? In a study carried out online by https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/8ap083/serious-parents-of-reddit-who-have-adopted/, parents shared their thoughts on raising adopted children.
Most parents agree that raising adopted children is not different at all from raising the rest of the kids. The joy laughter and mixed emotions that the children are a source of are no different from any other child. A parent commented that like all kids their adopted son has his highs and lows that is normal for anyone going through various stages of life.
Of note across the line by all the parents to adopted kids, is the question regarding the maternal parentage, the situation gets more complicated when the parties involved come from different races. A reader inputs that, to smoothen the identity dilemma process, they decided to document the whole process for the benefit of their child. They add that they continuously talked about it until the point where the topic ceased to be uncomfortable.
Another parent’s story is entirely different. The couple adopted a young teenage girl and were relieved by the fact that she understood the whole process. They, however, were faced with various difficulties altogether. In a nutshell, they agree that raising a child with a very complicated background past can be very demanding. At a mature age, some of these kids know things more than parents would wish them to, making the moulding of their behaviour to fit acceptable societal standard a little more difficult. Some parents, however, decide to keep it secret entirely and as one puts it, live happily ever after.
