Becoming an adoptive parent requires many important qualities. It is important to have a strong desire to share your home with a child who may have already had a rough life. Empathy, patience and a sense of humor can all be very helpful traits as well.
But one other very useful attribute is persistence. Persistence is often needed simply to navigate through the process of adopting a child. This can be true regardless of the circumstances of the adoption.
Sometimes matters can be very complicated. One example of this is if the adoption involves trying to extricate a child from a situation involving abuse or neglect. At other times, the process can be simpler, such as when you wish to adopt a newborn that is already in your care and you do not expect any form of protest.
Sometimes potential adoptive parents may be required to fill out a large number of forms. Other situations may become emotionally volatile. The entire undertaking could prove daunting and perhaps even frustrating.
However, you need not be discouraged. The overriding concern is always what is in the best interests of the child. By being persistent and adhering to all the legal requirements, you will have the opportunity to achieve your very worthwhile goal of completing an adoption.
