Infant adoption is one of the most popular choices made my first-time parents and adopters. An infant, regardless of being biologically related to its parents or not, is a lot of work and have the longest waits, as it's the most popular adoptable age in general. Many adopters prefer infants because they can control the child's environment from a very early age and also get to participate in nearly the full child-rearing experience of being a parent.
There are three primary ways to adopt a baby: internationally, independently and through a private agency. These are all more expensive options than adopting an older child through a public agency. However, relatively few healthy babies are available for adoption via the public agency.
When you adopt a baby, there's a good chance you'll be working with a pregnant woman who is placing her child up for adoption after it's born. As with every adoption, a couple will need to pass a home study before applying for adoption or beginning their search for a future birth mother. Placement with an infant can take anywhere from a few months to over a year, depending on what kind of family a birth mother is looking to place the child with. Also, if the couple is looking for a child of a certain ethnic background or other specific requests, their placement process may be sped up or slowed down.
International infant adoption is slightly different as the children are likely to be between the ages of 0 and 2 and may have experienced various physical traumas, such as malnourishment or poor prenatal health care, by the time they're placed with adoptive parents.
