Long-Term Consequences of Adoption

adopt2

I have found some great articles on the long-term consequences of adoption. Those that adopt or place their child up for adoption must be aware of the possible issues that could occur at any time during this sensitive process. This post is in no way trying to discourage those interested in adopting to be afraid or have doubts, but rather an opportunity to educate yourself and prepare as best as possible if these issues arise. There are groups and support available to you if you need help navigating this very emotional and complicated time in your life.
