International Adoption - Is It for You?

By Dylan Miles

International adoption is a very positive alternative for couples who've endured disappointing fertility results and failed domestic adoption attempts. International adoption differs from domestic adoption because of the sheer number of orphans available for adoption from around the world.

The availability of orphans means that you generally get to exert more control over the process of adoption. Things also happen much quicker, and tend to be more final once a decision has been made. With international adoption you also have more choice in terms of selecting a child based on your specific preference of age, gender, race, and health.

In many cases, children have already been abandoned by their birthparents, which means that international adoption procedures usually have minimal input from the birthparents. In most cases, this will be a plus. As an adoptive parent you really want to get on with your life and your new child with as little interference as possible. But in some cases, you'll want to make contact with the birthparents even if for information, and it won't be available.

With international adoption, you need to be deemed a qualified parent, which simply means that you will need to meet the requirements of the foreign government. Your privacy is always protected in such cases, but international adoption is never something to be taken lightly.

Some of the difficulties you will meet when deciding on international adoption are based on the difficulty of communication and the scarcity of information, which you will need to make decisions about the health and developmental status of your child. Do always consult an expert for advice on international adoption agencies and orphanages. Locate an expert pediatrician who has experience in international adoption. Many of these experts have screened international adoption organizations and can help you stay informed of risks and other dangers.

By staying informed you keep your options open. By staying informed, your international adoption experience will result in a positive addition to your home and family life.
