is a lifetime commitment that provides the nurturing, love, and security that
all children deserve. In order to secure families that provide a stable
and nurturing environment for a child, many adoption agencies now recognize
that this can be achieved through both two- parent and single parent homes.
parents adopt for many of the same reasons as married couples. They have the
desire to have a family and to nurture and raise a child. Single parents
approach adoption with the same commitment as a married couple. Most single
adoptive parents are female. Support from family and friends is important and
children need role models of the opposite sex: a Grandfather, Uncle, etc.
parents are usually of higher education and incomes than the national average.
Singles have concentrated on their careers and have established a stable home
and work environment that would benefit a child. While many singles have
successfully adopted newborns, others may find their career may conflict with
the demands of an infant, and adopt a toddler or school age child.
single parent can provide a loving and nurturing home for a child. There are
many children that need love and security and single parents often feel this
need. While some agencies may have restrictions on Single Parent Adoptions, we at Beacon House are committed to having programs
which will allow single women to adopt.
