Have you heard any adoption horror stories on TV or the internet? The truth is they are few and far between and do not accurately represent the vast number of families that are created through adoption. Instead of telling the success stories of adoption, the media focuses more on adoption horror stories.
Adoptive families are some of the most loving families one will ever find. Most adoptive couples have struggled with infertility, so when they do finally receive a child they are some of the most joyous people you’d ever encounter.
Birth mothers are sometimes afraid the adoptive couple won’t love their child as much as they would a biological child. This is one of many myths perpetuated by the media that is simply untrue, as found by 95 percent of families created through adoption.
