Full Answer

Adoption.org states that when a child is adopted, the original birth certificate is stored away with a state file of the adoption record. A new birth certificate is then issued identifying the adoptive parents. This is the same process even for stepchildren who have been adopted. The adoption certificate serves as a temporary document given to the adoptive parents, which remains in place until the new birth certificate has been received, according to Adoption.org.

    Why is adoption good?

    A:

    Adoption is often praised for its mutual benefit to all involved: the adoptive parents who want children but maybe cannot conceive; the birth mothers who cannot support children but opted against abortion; and the children themselves, who might otherwise grow up in an institution. This is often called "the triad of adoption."

  • Q:

    What are the pros and cons of open adoption versus closed adoption?

    A:

    A closed adoption means there is no contact between the birth and adoptive parents before or after the adoption. In open adoptions, the birth and adoptive parents develop a personal relationship and communicate on a consistent basis. Closed adoptions allow adoptive parents the security of privacy from the birth parents. Open adoptions remove the mystery from the process and allow both sets of parents to make more informed decisions.

  • Q:

    Why should people consider adoption?

    A:

    One of the best reasons to adopt is to provide a child with a stable home and caring, supportive parents. Many children put up for adoption come from bad situations or have never lived in a secure home environment. People who open their hearts and homes to such children give them a new lease on life.
