Domestic adoption can give Georgia children forever homes

The number of children waiting to be adopted throughout the world is shocking. Although finances and timelines may cause families to decide against adoption, the benefits that come from bringing a child into one’s home cannot be denied. Families in Georgia looking to adopt, often due to infertility, can look at the stories of others for encouragement through the process.

One couple from another state had been married for approximately five years, struggling to have a child of their own for several of those years before they decided to adopt. They chose a domestic adoption, hoping to bring a child without a home in this country into their family. Together, the couple looked at pictures of potential adoptive mothers. Having heard stories of other couple's adoptions, this family was prepared for a long wait.

Before they knew it, however, an opportunity to bring a child into their home fell into their laps. Within two months, a 6-pound, 3-ounce baby girl was handed into their waiting arms. Like many families going through the adoption process, uncertainty about whether the biological parents would want their child back gave this couple some pause. Even in the midst of this worry, the joy they and their extended family are experiencing knows no bounds.

Adoption can be a difficult process with numerous complications arising throughout the entire experience. However, it may also go quickly and smoothly like it did for this hopeful couple. Whether looking into adopting a child because of infertility or any other reason, worry about possible problems may be the only thing keeping a child from having a forever home. Georgia couples wondering about this process can seek assistance from those who work with families and other resources that are available.
