Study: My Understanding of Adoptions

An Introduction to Baby Adoption Infant adoption is a practice which has lasted throughout the ages, dating way back from the time of the Roman Empire, where adopting young men in order to serve as heirs to dynasties was not an uncommon practice. This has also been carried well into the Middle ages with the same reason, as a means to produce heirs for a certain bloodline and well into the immigration and Civil War eras, where it was used in order to complete and sometimes create families which are torn by all sorts of misfortunes. Today, even though the procedures may be different and a little more legally founded, the principle remains the same: to care for a child that has either lost his parents or does not have parents available, in order that he may still grow up with a family, considered to be the most basic unit of a human community. There are a lot of arguments and reasons nowadays which greatly support and back up the idea of adoption. In order to re-create a family for the child, intra-family adoptions are legally allowed and accepted when one or both of the parents of the child have perished which resulted in a relation of either parent stepping in to be a step-parent (stepfather or stepmother) for the child. There are also other existing reasons for intra-family adoptions such as avoiding the contribution to overpopulation, wanting to stop the spread of a hereditary disease and completely eliminate it, there are complications with pregnancy and childbirth and just the like are just a few of them. It is a fact believe it or not that intra-family adoptions are much more common and happen way more often than adoptions between families that are unrelated to each other, though the latter are the ones publicized more. Similar reasons, nevertheless, are also accounting for the number of unrelated adoptions.

In an open adoption, information is freely communicated between the adoptive parents and the biological parents which allows the individuals involved in the adoption of the infant have access to the information regarding his/her adoption which includes adoption records and birth certificates that are unaltered. Any agreements made between the adoptive parents and biological parents of the child which are binding are also kept in the open, though with limited access in order to avoid abuse.
