Love, most of us have had this in some way, by someone while we were young. If it was not a parent, then maybe an aunt, uncle, sister, brother or another family member or friend that did love us. The children within the US adoption system haven’t been that lucky. Some may have been in the US adoption system for years without someone to adopt and love them. Would you want this? I personally would not. We all at some point in time need love to help us nourish and be able to communicate with others. It also helps a child grow into a beautiful loving (at least we hope) human being.
Those children out there that have been in the US adoption system and have been adopted may not even remember being there. They were probably adopted while they were small and grew up thinking that his/her adoptive parents were his biological ones. Being adopted isn’t bad; it’s a great and lovable experience for anyone. The only thing that you have to remember is that even if you adopt through the US adoption system, no child is ever all peaches and crème. Children are great, don’t get me wrong (I have two) but there are also times when they get on your nerves because they grow up. But in the end they are they for you as you are for them if you raise them right.
When you want to adopt you should contact a US adoption agency of your choice. There is a charge for any US adoption but you have to think and keep in mind that no matter what the cost, a child will be loved and brought home to you as your child and no one else’s. It’s your choice on what child you would like to adopt. The agency will set up meetings so you can meet a few children within you specifications so that you will be able to “click” with that child. You will know, because even though he/she will not be your biological child, you will have a feeling deep inside the pit of your stomach and know what this child is yours. Once that happens you will have to ensure that no matter you come up against that you will fight in any way you can to get this child with you.
Another thing that anyone adopting whether in the US adoption system or internationally, not all children are as they appear; all though they seem ok a child may have a lot of emotional problems because of their past. You have to know that no matter what, he/she will be yours and you can not give him/her back. Besides what will the child think? Before you go through with anything you will need to ensure that US adoption of any kind is what you want. Learn before you do and always remember that no matter what, the child will be yours and loving him/her will be the first and foremost on your list of priorities.
