Pictures Of Babies For Adoption

There's never a shortage of pictures of babies for adoption. The cute, chubby little cherub cheeks and the occasional tuft of hair and curled fingers. It's hard not to fall in love with a photo as if one is flipping through the pages of an online catalog. While pictures of babies up for adoption, or photolistings, are helpful tools for an adoptive couple that may not know what kind of child they're looking to adopt, many couples fall into the trap of falling in love with one or two photos when the reality of that child being placed with them is very unlikely. Some photolistings are outdated and others are responded to by so many hopeful couples that photolistings should be used as examples of what kind of children are available for placement rather than ads for specific children.

Although photos are worth a thousand words, it's also important to note that the choice to adopt a certain child is much more complex. Very little can be known about babies, behaviorally and medically, and therefore baby photolistings may not be entirely educating. It's important to hone in on basic baby statistics, such as a child's Apgar score, which can give insight into the normalcy of the baby's reflexes.

So, cute gummy smiles and big, bright eyes aside, pictures of babies for adoption should be taken as guides into the possibilities of infant adoption rather than a point-and-pick approach.
