Not a Consolation Prize

Some people seem to think that adoption is some sort of consolation prize - a last resort for those that have no other choice in building their family.

Regardless of the reasons a family initially considers adoption, once they're in the process, it usually feels like the absolutely right thing to do. Surprising as it may seem to some, there are families - lots of families - that are in the process of adopting that have every intention of continuing with the adoption process even if they get pregnant (another thing people seem to think magically happens to people that adopt).

Adoption, like pregnancy, has its own rewards and those that never experience it may never know.
