Very well, I must come out and say it: I decided not to do my issues paper on any of the previous topics. I want to talk about adoption. I am not really sure what specific part of adoption that I want to talk about yet, but I am doing my research for it!
My first URL focused on the different aspects of adoption like, who could adopt, who could be adopted, and the adoption process; thus, allowing me to get a better feel for how adoption really works. My Second URL was on a book all about adoption and I hardly got to read any of it, so I just know that it talked about the way parents should handle adopting children because children that are adopted can have many different problems (mentally, behaviorally) and the adopting parents need to know how to handle the situation correctly. My third URL is providing a counter argument to the idea that adopting is always a tricky and hopeless situation; it presents the idea that there are a lot of myths about adopting and that through international adopting, a person can achieve an everlasting relationship with their adopted child with less difficulty than they thought. the fourth URL takes on the target audience for birth mothers. Birth mothers who give their children up for adoption typically have a very hard decision giving up their child for adoption, and the website goes through the different questions that a mother might be considering concerning giving up her child for adoption. The last and fifth URL focuses on the benefits children receive when adopted into a loving family after having been in a family of abuse and neglect. The article shows how major challenges in a child's life can be mended through adoption into a loving environment.
