Would you adopt a child?

Irrespective of whether you have your own or are not able of having one for any reason.

Adopting a child is an incredibly rewarding experience for many parents whether they have biological children or not. In my case, I don’t have a child as I am single but marital status isn’t a barrier to adopting a child. However, in our country adopting a child by an unmarried individual is not taken positively.

The idea of adoption is good, but child-rearing is a very difficult task. Creating a nurturing and affectionate home environment is crucial for better child rearing. It’s critically important to know as much about the child’s history in order to meet the child on his/her emotional and developmental needs. When parenting a child who was removed from his parents due to abuse or neglect, the adopting parents should be aware that traditional parenting is not the best approach even if it worked for their biological children.
