Domestic adoption vs. Foreign adoption            When a person is considering adoption they may decide to undergo in a foreign adoption, or a domestic adoption. Either option can help a child’s life greatly. Adoption can be a long process but could  help better a child’s life.

A foreign adoption is when an individual adopts a child from another country. Depending on where the foreign adoption is taking place will determine what type of laws and restrictions the individuals will have to follow. Generally a foreign adoption is a lengthy process which requires the help of lawyers, an adoption agency, and a clear understanding of the country’s laws and culture.  

A domestic adoption takes place when an individual adopts a child from their own country. A domestic adoption commonly takes place when an individual adopts a member of their biological family, for example, when an aunt and uncle adopt a niece or nephew. A domestic adoption can be done through a foster care program, an adoption agency, or through the state itself.


Regardless of whether a person decides to undergo in a foreign adoption or a domestic adoption, they will have to consider laws, restrictions, and the general process of adoption prior to fully committing. Once a person does decide on the adoption, they will have to remain patience since adoption can be a lengthy process. Ultimately, the most important thing to consider is the child, and their health, safety, and well-being.
