What kind of people adopt? Ordinary people like you and I. Adoption in the United States is quite common. Everyone knows someone who has been touched by adoption. You may have been adopted yourself.
What motives people to adopt? Most adoptive parents fit into one of four categories. The infertile couple comes to mind most often. However, there are others. Some people have always carried a desire to adopt. These types can be found taking in many children, both by adoption and by birth. Then there are those who take in foster children, bond with them and fight to adopt them. The fourth are those who adopt a relative or friend’s child when the child is orphaned.
It doesn’t matter how the family comes together. God is the designer of them all. They are miracles put together with purpose and love.
