Parent-to-Parent: Deciding to Adopt

Realizing Adoption Was Right for Us

Real adoptive parents write about the moment when they first realized adoption was the best choice for their families.

“I always felt adoption was right for our family, not at all a ‘second choice…”

“For us, it wasn’t a single moment, but a series of coincidences.”

“When did I realize that adoption was the right choice for us? About 10 seconds after I learned we were unable to have biological children.”
