National Adoption Awareness Week aims to demystify the issues around adoption, raise awareness and acknowledge all parties in adoption. Part of that aim is to dispel the “Myths of Adoption.”
Adoptive parents in Australia identified the top ten myths they have to deal with when talking with family, friends and passers-by in the shopping centre that can’t resist asking “Whose child is that?”
MYTH #5 – Adoption is buying a baby
FACTS – The children don’t cost money; it’s the process that costs money.
ALL Children, adopted, biological, fostered, whatever! are priceless and invaluable.
