Fostering can lead to successful adoption

Couples in Georgia who are considering adoption and are not sure where to start may want to consider fostering a child. Fostering can lead to adoption and can be very rewarding for all of those involved. A recent article recounted the story of a young woman who was adopted through the foster program. She recounted her experience and the impact it has had on her life.

The woman was placed in foster care when she was 3 years old. The courts do not relish removing a child from his or her home and do so to protect the welfare of the child; when possible, children are placed with other family members. When this is not possible they become part of the foster system. The young woman in the article was 6 years old when she was adopted by her foster parents. She grew up in a happy home and was inspired to become a nurse following in her adoptive mother's footsteps.

There are concerns expressed by people considering adoption. One of these is the difficulty in telling a child that he or she is adopted and the fear that once a child is made aware of this, he or she will want to find his or her birth parents. While this may be true in some cases, the young woman in the article did not desire to find her birth parents. When she turned 18, she was able to see the file that detailed the circumstances of her being placed in foster care. Knowing the information made her more appreciative of her adoptive parents.

A couple in Georgia who are considering adoption may benefit from a conversation with an experienced family law attorney. A knowledgeable attorney can answer questions regarding the foster and adoption process. A family law lawyer can assist a client in making an informed decision that could be a wonderful beginning for a new family.
