Becoming a parent is an incredibly life-changing decision, and there are many ways to start a family. Adoption is one way that many individuals and couples choose. While of course it would be ideal to live in a world where every child can remain in the loving care of their birth family, or join a family in their country of birth, that is unfortunately not the reality many children face today. Around the world, thousands of children are growing up in orphanages and foster homes with no foreseeable plan to go home to an adoptive family. These children typically are either older in age, part of a sibling grouping or have special developmental or medical needs. It is extremely important that every child is given the opportunity to grow, thrive and have a loving home. For that reason, thousands of children are adopted internationally to the United States each year.
Giving A Child A Home
By providing a loving home and a stable environment, you are giving the child a chance at a new life. Stability is crucial to a child’s well-being and is essential for a child’s physical, mental, and emotional development. According to studies, children who are placed in permanent families through adoption experience better health, education, and overall well-being compared to children who remain in institutional care. As an adoptive parent, you have the power to provide a safe and secure environment for a child, and in turn, give them the stability they need to thrive.
Many families consider international adoption because they may have a personal cultural connection with a specific foreign country. For some families, the decision to adopt a child from a specific foreign country is rooted in personal experiences and ties to that culture. Perhaps they have visited the country multiple times on mission trips, have close friends from that area or grew up in that culture. The desire to welcome a child into their home from that country is a beautiful way to honor and celebrate the unique culture and customs that they hold dear. Whatever the reason, loving a child, and growing your family should not be limited by borders.
