An Introduction to Baby Adoption
Infant adoption, though has been a continuing controversy, is a practice that has endured and lasted throughout the ages dating from way back into the time of the Roman Empire where young men were being adopted in order to serve as the next in line heirs to dynasties and was not considered as an odd practice. This has also been carried well into the Middle ages with the same reason, as a means to produce heirs for a certain bloodline and well into the immigration and Civil War eras, where it was used in order to complete and sometimes create families which are torn by all sorts of misfortunes. Today, even though the procedures may be different and a little more legally founded, the principle remains the same: to care for a child that has either lost his parents or does not have parents available, in order that he may still grow up with a family, considered to be the most basic unit of a human community.
There are a lot of arguments and reasons nowadays which greatly support and back up the idea of adoption. Intra-family adoptions are legally allowed when at least one of the child’s parent have died which results in a relation of either a parent stepping in to be a step-parent (stepmother or stepfather) for the child in order to re-create a family for the child. There are other numerous reasons as to why intra-family adoptions should exists such as the wanting to stop the spread of a deadly hereditary disease, major complications with pregnancy and childbirth, wanting to not contribute to the problem of overpopulation are just some of the things which contribute to the existence of the intra-family adoptions. It is a fact believe it or not that intra-family adoptions are much more common and happen way more often than adoptions between families that are unrelated to each other, though the latter are the ones publicized more. Nevertheless, similar reasons are also the ones which account to the number of adoptions which are unrelated.
Adoptions come in two forms: The first open, and the second closed. In an open adoption, information is freely communicated between the biological parents of the child and the adoptive parents, allowing the involved individuals in the child adoption have access to information regarding his/her adoption, which would include unaltered birth certificates and adoption records. With limited access in order to avoid abuse, any binding agreements made upon between the adoptive parents and biological parents of the child are also kept in the open. Closed adoptions on the other hand are a different story altogether. In a closed type of adoption, the records and documents of the adoption and other materials which are similar are kept confidential usually by a lawyer hired by both parties.
