Tax Adoption Deductions - History Of Adoption
The Complete Book of International Adoption: A Step by Step Guide to Finding Your Child
by Dawn Davenport

This book is for anyone thinking about any form of adoption because it has a great discussion and comparison of all forms of adoption. Although the book goes on to a thorough coverage of international adoption, The author is clear that all forms of adoption should be considered and there is no one type of adoption that is best for everyone.

The book covers everything a prospective parent needs to think about, but the author is nonjudgmental about many of the choices parent will have to make. With each choice she urges parents to be honest with themselves and to put the interest of the child first.

The first couple of chapters most helpful if you are just starting the adoption process: are you ready to move on to adoption, what type of adoption is best for us, how to choose a country, and how to choose an agency.

Tax Adoption Deductions * History Of Adoption

The History of Adoption   
Kent Sayre

Adoption has been around for a long--LONG--time. The earliest recorded history of adoption was in Babylonian times, 18th century B.C. The practice was seen as an important way of life then, and as such, the practice extended through the middle ages, all the way up to the discovery of the new world.

Adoption has since seen a wave of changes. Initially, adopting a child as one's own was not an activity that had laws. Adoption practices were abused. Many children and teenagers became servants to their guardians, often forced to perform arduous labor in severely adverse conditions.

It wasn't until 1851 that the first adoption law was passed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, enabling children in destitute conditions to enter homes that, hopefully, were homes that would provide refuge.

There have been several comprehensive studies on adoption in the United States, all of them producing statistics that show just how in flux adoption trends have been over the years:

* In 1970, 175,000 children were adopted in the United States. This is significantly higher than the 1944 total of 50,000 adoptions, but much less than the 2001 total of 127,000

* As of 1999, approximately 2 percent of all U.S. children were adopted

* According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more girls are adopted than boys, which explains why there are more boys than girls in foster care (52 percent, 48 percent, respectively)

* In 1986, there were more instances of adoptions wherein the child was in some way related to the guardians. By 1999, unrelated adoptions were far more frequent (85 percent unrelated adoptions, 15 percent related adoptions, respectively)

* As of 2000, California, New York and Texas have the highest amount of adopted children living in homes (the same three in a 1992 study)

The reasons for adopting are as varied as the statistics, including infertility, death of a loved one, philanthropy, or adoptions by same sex couples. Homosexual couples adopting has come under scrutiny by many lately, particularly within the Catholic community as homosexuality goes contrary to Catholic orthodoxy. Catholic Charities of Boston for instance, no longer participates in the adoption business because by excluding same-sex couples from adopting children, as they have done, violates the states orientation discrimination laws.

Much like the stock market, adoption trends will continue to rise and fall. What has remained constant, though, is the overwhelming number of foster children searching for a loving home.
