Safre And Easy Adotpion Essay

1462 words - 6 pages

Even though the children need to be in a safe environment, adoption should be easier. Adoption should be easier because children are already expensive enough and you shouldn't be able to "shop" for a child.
Imagine yourself, Once again being told to hop in the car with a kind lady who will once again drive you to an unknown place. This is a place you never seen, and going to meet people you never met before. All your belongings are packed in one little suitcase. You stare out the window and wonder who you will meet. Will they be kind? Will they have sons and daughters who will be nice to you? Will they like you? Questions go through your head as you hope that this will be the last time. ...view middle of the document...

"I've been moved to different homes, and the adoption didn't go so well," Ke'onte said in 2009.
Carol and Scott Cook saw Ke'onte on Channel 8 and knew right away he was their son.
"He just spoke to us through the video," Scott said. "Just seemed like he was talking to us."
"I'd like to say 'thank you' for putting him on the second time, because not only did you bring us the child that God wanted us to have — and we wouldn't have seen him otherwise — but you've also helped him touch millions by him being able to talk about his story," Carol added.
Two years ago, Ke'onte spoke before Congress, describing his four years in foster care where he felt he was over-medicated with mind-altering drugs.
"When I first arrived at my parents' house, my Mom says she woke up, went into my room, and saw me walking in circles," Ke'onte remembered.
Now a healthy young man, completely off medication, Ke'onte is a runner, avid hiker, and a great dancer. He knows this all might not have been possible without Gloria's persistence in finding him a home.
"I want to say to her thank you so much, because you've made my life worthwhile and you've helped me become the person that I am right now," he said. "I probably would have been worse off had you not helped me out."
"He's definitely our son, our child... we love him very much.""
This story should inspire everyone to adopt. A big reason that people don't adopt is because of the cost and another reason is because of how difficult it is to adopt a child. A child is expensive their whole life. From the day they are born till the day they die. The adoption price is ridiculous. This Process can still be safe without all the expenses.

The process of adopting is very difficult and nerve racking for the child. If it was me I would try to be as perfect as possible, and no one is perfect. I could imagine a lot of these kids are disappointed when they’re not chosen to go with the couple. The couple that has an farm with lots of different animals and other kids to play with but the picture that was posted on the website of the Adoption agency you’re included in didn't sale you good enough. you have to wait and wait, then finally you meet this family and you think that they’re going to take you home and your going to get that stable family life you've been waiting for. You go to their home and they decide they don't want you so just like a TV. that didn't have a good enough picture for them they send you back. The previous article states that he was nervous about his adoption.

Adoption is very cruel towards the children. The parents don't have it near as bad. They have to pay millions of dollars to get the child and do a ton of paperwork, and hope it all works out. No one wants to have to live with someone they don't like. They send you back and you start all over. At this point the child...
