Adoption - Process and Statistics 

There are millions of children waiting to be adopted worldwide. They are orphans whose parents are no longer in this world; abandoned children given up for adoption; children entrusted with social care and many others. They all need warmth, parental caress, care, love and a home in which to feel safe and protected. According to some statistics, more than 1 million children in the United States live with their adoptive parents, but by 2005 more than 120,000 children were in public foster care, waiting for their new parents to come and take them home. 

Every year, thousands of families try to adopt a child for a number of reasons - a desire to give a child home, sterility or an attempt to save their relationship. Unfortunately, in different countries, expectant parents face a huge number of challenges in this complex, long and tumultuous process. For example, another statistic from the end of the last century shows that 6 out of 10 Americans have personal experience with adoption. In other words, they themselves, a member of their family or a close friend of theirs have been adopted or have attempted to adopt a child.

Despite the grim statistics, one thing is clear for the adopters - those who want to save a child have huge hearts that barely fit in their chests. Humans who put the happiness of their non-biological child before their own. People full of hope, love and dedication. People who deserve respect!

Enrolling in Adoption Class - Why Is It Necessary?

If you have decided to adopt a child, you should be aware from the beginning that even If your child is two-months-old, it carries its "primary wound". This is what psychologists call the wound that the children experience after being abandoned by their biological parents. The babies are carried in their mother’s womb for 9 months, after birth there is a natural need to be with her, to feel her touch, to hear her voice, to feel loved and caressed by her. This abandonment is painful, which leads to the greater need of the child to feel loved and understood. 

If you feel the need to receive professional advice on how to upbring your children, curing their wounds, we recommend you to enroll in an online adoption training. OnlineParentingCenter has developed these adoption preparation classes in order to help the future parents to prepare themselves for the challenges they are about to face. Our courses are written by a certified instructor and a member of the National Parent Instructor Association.

Being designed by a specialist, our adoption classes meet the national and state standards of courts, adoption services, child protective services, social workers, legal representatives and other entities. In order to meet all of their requirements, we have created programs with different durations - from 4 up to 52 hours. What is more, OnlineParentingCenter provides weekly pre adoption classes as well. Choosing to participate in a weekly training, you will receive consistent access to the lecture course, limited to one lesson per week. 

However, no matter which particular adoption parenting class you will decide to take part in, once you complete the curriculum, you will gain free access to your certificate of completion - the official document which states that you have successfully obtained the needed knowledge. © · 2023
