Being single in our society or having a sort of non-formal relationship such as a marriage has become very common and normal nowadays. For some people instead of having a destructive or catastrophic marriage, they decide to live in peace and without any interruptions since modern life nowadays is unpredictable and no one really knows what could happen tomorrow or the day after. But imagine a scenario in which you decide to stay single and you have decided to live without any obligations; you just want to enjoy your life. However, years later, you decide that eventually your perfect and single life ultimately has become sort of boring, so you think about it and eventually you weigh the options and decide that you want to have a child.
You start searching up for adoption agencies and while you are doing this, you start shopping for the child’s clothes, furniture, etc. You also take into consideration to start adjusting your expenses and you also start to study your banking budget since a new member is going to come to your life and he/she needs everything necessary to have a good education and a brilliant future. However, later on you realize that your dream of being a mother or a father has vanished just within reach of your hands simply because you do not have a stable relationship or because the government considers that because you are a single mother/father you are not capable of taking care of a child who is completely dependent on you. Why could a successful, independent single man or woman who want to give up his or her freedom and assume the responsibilities of raising a child is not able to give love to a child who for some reason was abandoned in a place that although he/she receives food and shelter, he/she still need the love of a mother/father? This is the concern of many single Americans nowadays, they think that single parents should be able to adopt a child without any restrictions. And yes, indeed, single parents should be able to adopt children who need it simply because single parent adoption provides a much more solid environment and because nowadays the number of adoptions by single parents have increased at a steady rate.
