Infant Adoption: The Basics Infant adoption is a practice which has lasted throughout the ages, dating way back from the time of the Roman Empire, where adopting young men in order to serve as heirs to dynasties was not an uncommon 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 a lot of other reasons for intra-family adoptions which exist like complications with pregnancy and childbirth, wanting to stop the spread of a disease which is hereditary, avoiding to contribute to the problem of overpopulation and the likes are just a few of them. 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. Similar reasons, nevertheless, are also accounting for the number of unrelated adoptions.

Adoptions come in two forms: The first open, and the second closed. In an open adoption, information between adoptive and biological parents is freely communicated, allowing the individual involved in the infant adoption access to information regarding his adoption, which includes unaltered birth certificates and adoption records. Any binding agreements which have been made between both parties, the adoptive parents and biological parents, of the child, are also kept in the open with limited access in order to avoid and mitigate abuse. Altogether, closed adoptions are a different story. In a closed adoptions, usually by a hired lawyer, the records of the adoption and other similar materials are kept confidential.Getting To The Point – Adoptions
