Adoption is a very beautiful experience. This process fulfils the dreams of several couples who cannot give birth to a child of their own. By this process at least they are not denied the pleasure of parenting throughout their life. It is also advantageous, as by this process you give beautiful life to a child who she/he may not have got otherwise.
However, it has been found that there are many more children that can be adopted but are not being able to due to strict adopting procedures. One needs to think several times before taking the decision of adoption. There are several ways of adoption. One needs to first decide which method is to be used and should also know the rules prior to adoption.
This is one of the cheapest methods of adopting a baby. Compared to other methods, in this method you are given subsidies by the state from which you are adopting the baby. But this method takes a lot of time to get the baby in hand.
It is a time taking procedure because first you have to undergo a home study about the specific rules of the state for adoption and after that you need to undergo a particular training of parenting. Once this is done then the child who matches your family the most can be adopted. In many cases the child is also sent to your house few times before transferring the rights and completing the process of adoption.
Private or Independent Adoption
Compared to the foster care adoption, private adoption process is very costly. In this method of adoption, you need to take the help of either an adoption lawyer or an adoption agency. Here the parent who gives birth to the child selects the family in which the child will be adopted.
They do so by either consulting some adoption agency or by seeing the advertisements about the adopting matters put up in the newspaper or in the internet. This process is very costly as the adopting parents have to pay the medical fees of the legal mother and also the legal fees during the process of adoption. The legal procedure takes a lot of time and money also.
In this method you can adopt a baby from the country you wish to but you need to fulfil the rules and regulations of the country from which you are adopting the child. Each country has its own rules. This process becomes very costly.
You have to travel to that country, pay the travelling expenses and also the cost of legal procedures that you will have to complete before adopting the child. Getting a baby in your hand after so much of hard work is indeed a pleasure for the couple who is unable to give birth to their own child.
