1.Cant have children of their own.
This is the most common reason people adopt. They aren't able to have children, but they have a strong desire to have a family. Having adoption as an option has been very beneficial for the children & the parents who adopt.
2.Desire to help the children.
This is another common reason why people adopt. Although there are a lot of babies in adoption agencies there are also a lot of older children who have suffered much neglect & abuse. The families who desire to help create a safe haven for these children allowing them the opportunity to grow in a loving & caring environment.
No matter the reason there are a few steps you an your family will have to go through to adopt.
What must we do first?
For domestic adoptions, the first step is completion of a pre-placement evaluation to determine the prospective parents' fitness and readiness as an adoptive parent or parents. A licensed child placing agency or a licensed social worker can do this evaluation. In addition, a home study must be performed and evaluated according to the Department of Public Health and Human Services' standards or licensed child placing agency's standards.
