Child adoption is the way kids are given another chance for a family. It involves giving the adoptive parents the rights and responsibilities of biological parents. This means they will be fully responsible for the child.

Around the globe, child adoption is considered legal and is recognized. This is popular among a number of countries since they want orphans to have better lives. With more and more people understanding the need for it, child adoption has changed for the better. In the past, only babies were considered for adoption, but today, the concept of child adoption has expanded to include children of all ages.

This is the case now because of some reasons. Perhaps one of the most obvious is that children, as human beings, have the right to know and trace their roots. These children need to a family who wants them and will love them. Well, this feeling of belonging is what really affects the children's sense of self worth. Kids with no feeling of self-worth will not be able to deal well with others. They would not even know how to deal with their communities. The absence of attention and appreciation in their lives can cause behaviour problems in these kids.

Many countries legalize adoption because there are so many people who want children but can't. These couples have so much to give if they only have kids. That's probably why people who can't have kids turn to adoption, but they aren't the only ones. In fact, 30% of those who want to adopt already have kids, but they want even more.

Now who really are these children being considered for adoption?

The kids who are being adopted have biological parents who just can't raise them. You might stereotype them as irresponsible parents, but you should think twice because they would have personal reasons for leaving their kids for adoption. Most of them aren't really ready to be parents yet.

Many of them are also single parents. These parents usually find themselves unable to support and mold their children to become responsible in their own fields. Lack of financial support is the most common reason behind child adoption. Most single parents believe that there is no hope for them to support their child's education, or they have realized that they are not ready to be parents. Then again, there are other reasons. In some cases, the single parents keep their babies and do the best they can.

Child adoption today is soaring up high. Right now, there are about almost a million adoption cases already. Asia, Australia, Europe, Africa, and America have all legalized adoption.
