CHILD ADOPTION,TRUTH AND MISCONCEPTION




 CHILD ADOPTION,TRUTH AND MISCONCEPTION

Most people in society, especially in Africa, frown at the issue of child adoption from orphanage homes. To them, it is better for one to remain childless and save him of shame and embarrassments than go and adopt a child whose family background or birth history no one knows about. In the article on : child adoption:fears and misconceptions,the fears and misconceptions of people over child adoption, giving their reasons were mentioned and discussed. Here in this article however, we are going to see the truth about child adoption, with the single objective of relieving people out of the fear of unknown.
THE TRUTH ABOUT CHILD ADOPTION
One of the foremost reasons why marriage was conceived in the beginning was for procreation purposes. It is the coming together of husband and wife to produce their own children. Unfortunately,however, not every married couple on earth are able to have their own children. Are you by any means suggesting that couples who are not able to have their own children should remain without a child? I don't think so! The orphanage homes is an ideal place for any child caring and loving person to go get a child, and give him name,home and hope. This is one truth about child adoption. It is a provision for childless persons to have children in their own named,giving opportunity to you and I,to give home and hope to orphans.
You see,when I was in school, a flatmate of mine,said to me: "Monica,when I get married and have my kids,say two or three, I will adopt at least one baby,to give a child a name, home and hope". Yes,that was my flatmate whose name I won't mention for you This. Very human, and loving!
Another truth about child adoption  we must not forget here is that " no child of circumstances, whether he is a product of a mad person,being conceived through rape or the like,ever inheritted such ugly traits of their parents". Wicked traits such as rape,stealing, and other host of immorality can never be  inherited from gene to gene. Traits,naturally are acquired by strong desires which in turn become part of a person. This is to say that even children from very good homes can eventually turn bad tomorrow if they decide to do so.Traits again, are not transferable by blood to a child.
Finally, children of circumstances who have one ugly background, or some unfortunate birth or family history are usually very careful with their lifestyles. They do not want to live any lifestyle that will depict their ugly background or anything close to it. I know many of them by names,I have stayed with them, and I have lived in the same community with them for years. I am so sure of my findings,and talks.
Dear reader,and people all over the world, give an open hand to orphans and see them as your brothers and sisters they truly are. They are not born or conceived by animals and any thoughts of this kind about orphans is to humanity an injurious abuse!!!
