Adoption is a way of providing the security, permanency and love of a new family when it is not possible for a child to be raised by his/her birth parents or within the birth family.
Adoption is a legal process which transfers parental responsibility from the child’s birth parents to their adoptive parents. The Adoption Order is granted by a court when the child(ren) have been living with the prospective adopters and all concerned, including the child, are happy. Once an Adoption Order is made it cannot be revoked.
Adoption is a process whereby a person assumes the parenting of another, usually a child, from that person’s biological or legal parent or parents. Legal adoptions permanently transfers all rights and responsibilities, along with filiation, from the biological parent or parents.
In many jurisdictions the adopted person’s full original birth certificate is cancelled and replaced with a fabricated post-adoption birth certificate which states that the child was born to the adoptive parents. This deception, where carried out, may continue with the adopted person for life and can be the cause for many well documented traumas experienced by the adopted person, including loss of identity, family history, culture, biological family (including not only biological parents but also siblings and extended family), family medical history and records, and increased risk of suicide, homelessness, incarceration, PTSD, depression, and anxiety.
