APs who adopted from foster care, have your views changed?
Question by Sunny: APs who adopted from foster care, have your views changed?
Have your views about infant adoption changed? Do you disagree with newborn adoption, or did you just want to adopt older children more than an infant?
Answer by Kristi Howard
As with any adoption, I only agree with it when it is ABSOLUTELY the best and ONLY recourse that a child would have compared to living with their biological parents and/or family.
Oklahoma has a lot of meth addicted people. They are finding meth labs and taking away newborns from those homes almost daily here.
If those people can’t/don’t/won’t get their heads on straight and clean up for their children, nor would any family associated with them, then I know that you could not honestly say that staying with them, just on the basis of a genetic bond, is in that child’s best interests.
Myself, we wanted to adopt children that were older, because we know that younger children and infants have a better chance of being placed. Older doesn’t mean less deserving to receive love and comfort and a home.
I have never agreed with the abusive practices of private and agency adoptions, where they tend to convince a 16 year old woman that because of her age, she is not able to parent, and forces her decision because they have made her believe she was not capable.
