Most good things in life are given free to us such as parents that are one of the most important and basic things in life. However, people usually speculate whether adopted children feel the same way that we do? Adoption can be pretty complicated simply because one is not aware of what will happen when the child grows up, the person adopting a child will never know how the child will react once he’s aware he’s adopted. Will they grow to love them, hate them, admire them or fear them? All of these unanswerable questions make any person think twice before having the courage to adopt.
Adoption has several advantages such as the family is recognized by law and all the members have the same surname. The children share rights of inheritance with any other children of the family and at the same time legal links with the previous family are severed and a person does not have to be married to adopt they can also adopt as the partner of the child’s parent So adoption can simplify the legal situation for stepfamilies. Nevertheless, it is important for step-parents to think very carefully about whether adoption will help their family. When children are adopted, the law no longer recognizes the birth parents as having any parental links with the child.
Another important this is that half-brothers and sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins on that parent’s side will then be legally unrelated to the child. Your child will be legally cut off, not only from one of his or her parents but from a large section of that parent’s wider family too. This could be confusing or distressing for the child and obviously needs careful consideration. In recent years, people have become more aware of how important it is for children to know about their origins. In stepparent adoptions, too, it is important to make sure that, although legal ties may be cut, the child does not completely lose contact with the other parent and his or her relatives.
Children may feel that they have to choose between different adults who are all important to them. All adopted children feel some sense of loss because their original parent gave them up to someone else. Eventually, an adopted child may blame their parent or step-parent for the loss of the other birth parent. There are both advantages and disadvantages to adopting a child, but the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages and people must adopt parentless children.
