Babies Up For Adoption

Somewhere between 30,000 and 50,000 infants are adopted every year in the United States. Just under half of which are of international origin. Babies, which are categorized loosely to be between 0 and 2 years of age, are among the most desired adoptive age for first-time parents because the experience is as similar to biological child birth as an adoptive couple can get.

Babies come into adoption for a variety of reasons. One of the most common is unplanned pregnancy, however, there are thousands of infant-aged children in the U.S. foster care system. Other babies are overseas and placed for adoption via an orphanage.

Babies up for adoption can be located by agencies, attorneys, personal ads and photolistings. Adopting a baby has its perks, such as giving adoptive parents a lot of control over an infant's early life environment. However, a baby's brief pre-adoptive history may not always be very telling and adopted babies, like biological children, may develop behavioral or physical issues that were unpredictable at infancy. Some infants called boarder babies are those who are left in a hospital's nursery due to being born of a mother with HIV or who uses drugs. These babies may be in the foster system and prepared for adoption placement.

The chances of receiving an infant internationally is almost always a sure thing once a couple is approved for adoption, making it perhaps one of the fastest ways to start a family.
