Reflection Period

People consider adoption as a way to start or expand a family for a number of reasons. Infertility, the risks involved in late pregnancy, the possibility of a high-risk pregnancy and the wish to take in a needy child are a few.

There are other ways to help or assist a child, such as temporarily or permanently taking in a child born in Québec, sponsoring a foreign child through humanitarian organizations, volunteer work or mentoring young people.

While taking care not to dampen one's enthusiasm for a domestic or international adoption plan, it is important to see how dreams measure up to reality. Discussing the idea with one's spouse, children, family and friends, meeting with people who have already been through the adoption process, joining reliable discussion groups and forums on the Net, and gathering lots of information are all ways to help think the idea through before taking the first official steps to adopt a child.
