Fertile couple choosing adoption
My husband of 4 years and I have started the adoption process. Our focus since we decided that this was the right decision for us was in helping a littler person who needed the love and support we knew we could provide. We are interested in a child 1 year or younger of any race, ethnicity, or gender. To be honest, though, I did not realize that there were not children that fell into this category needing a family. I’ve been surprised to find that we are finding mostly resources to adopt in a mostly traditional sense of finding a birth family/mother.
Am I wrong to think that there are young children in the U.S. that need loving families to support them? As I have said, this has all come as a surprise during the research and discovery phase of this process, so I am looking to gather any information that others can provide.
We are still committed to adoption, even if it is not what we originally envisioned. (What in life is?) However, I guess I am still looking for some solace and understanding from my original ideas of what this process would be like,
Any insights or information would be greatly appreciated!
