    A few things you should consider before you adopt. Adopting a child is a wonderful, life-changing experience. But if you've always dreamed of having a traditional pregnancy, birth, and family life, there are a few things you should consider before you adopt. 1. You may need to look for a "baby basics" class. Most women who give birth learn about the care, feeding, and basic development of babies in their childbirth class or at a class for expectant parents. If you're adopting a baby, however, this particular option won't be available to you. Fortunately, though, some hospitals, adoption

    Foreign Adoption In the last three decades, U.S. citizens adopted more than 265,000 children from other countries (U.S. Department of State). Inter-country adoption is an option most potential parents should consider when starting a family. A child growing up without a loving and caring parent is devastating because a child is missing the proper support and guidance that a family can provide. The Hague Adoption Convention states “[A] child, for the full and harmonious development of his or her personality, should grow up in a family environment, in an atmosphere of happiness, love and unders

    A Child and Their Identity: Adoption is Wrong There are conflicting findings regarding whether or not adopted children have more psychological or behavioral problems than nonadoptees (Miller, Christensen & Dulmen, 2000). Research results vary in part due to the fact that previous studies are based on small clinical samples or samples that have been construed as biased because of self-selection. Researchers, in order to develop new information, have created a nationally representative school survey that has been used to compare adopted adolescents with those who were not adopted. Result

    Adoption Controversy: Should Birth Records Be Open or Closed? Adoption is the legal process by which a person becomes a lawful member of a family different from their original birth family.  Once a decree of adoption has been finalized by a court of law, the new adoptive parents gain the same rights and responsibilities as parents whose children are biologically birthed. Subsequently, an adopted child gains the same rights as birth children in regard to inheritance, child support, and other legal matters.  In most U.S. jurisdictions, at the time the adoption is finalized, the adopted child'

    In the event of an unplanned pregnancy more and more parents are turning to adoption for their child. Many of these parents choose closed adoption thinking that in the end, it is better for them and the infant. Open adoption is better for everyone involved both physically and mentally. When choosing adoption the expecting parent should choose to be fully involved in the adoption. The adoption process is a long and stressful process. The amount of stress during the adoption process tends to reduce when it is a voluntary open adoption (About). Everyone involved has their own way of dealing

    God, Morality, and Meaning in Cormac McCarthy’s The Road Erik J. Wielenberg ormac McCarthy’s novel The Road is, among other things, a meditation on morality, what makes human life meaningful, and the relationship between these things and God. While the novel is rife with religious imagery and ideas, it suggests a conception of morality and meaning that is secular in nature. In this paper I show that while the existence of God remains ambiguous throughout the novel, The Road contains both a clear moral code and a view about what makes life meaningful. I describe this moral code and examine its

    Adoption: Psychological Effects Can’t Go Unnoticed Adoption, upon hearing the word, elicits both positive and negative responses. This life changing experience is much more than the generalized idea of a family being created from the adoption of a new baby. Adoption comes with a lot of changes that affect a number of people’s lives, but these changes go beyond the gain, and loss, of a child. Adoption is much more complex than that, and the lasting effects it can have on adoptees tends to go unnoticed. Psychological effects from this change and process need to be addressed and treated as soon
