It’s not uncommon for people who are single to want to go ahead and start a family. Being a single parent through adoption may be slightly less conventional, but it’s not unheard of or impossible.
Raising a child as a single parent might be viewed by others as an “unconventional” life choice…
but to mothers and fathers who choose to do it on their own; they just want to make their dream into reality. Single men and women want to adopt a child for many of the same reasons that couples want to. They want to be a parent, have a child to love, want to give a child a home, pregnancy might not be an option, and the list could go on. There has been an increasing in single adoptive parents over the past few years and whatever the reasons leading them to adoption, their journey is something to be celebrated.
Many people hear the word “single parent” and automatically think that a tragedy or divorce caused their single status but that not always the case. There are many singles who make the choice to enter the world of parenthood.
