Having a child is a very personal decision and a decision that has to be very thoughtful. The woman must move away from the distorted image that television commercials or Hollywood movies send us of motherhood, since many times she does not identify with reality.
- To this decision is added the element that women need a man to be able to carry out their dream, something that many do not agree and they do not want, at all, to submit their desire to another person. Hence, they choose adoption.
- At other times, the reason is due to problems with having a biological child by the woman or, also, by the father, and after several unsuccessful attempts at fertility treatments.
- But behind this decision to adopt a child there may also be a reason of social conscience. They are usually people who have seen very closely -through their work or close relatives- the drama of some children who do not have a family to grow up and be happy with.
Whatever the reason, adoption is just one more way for women to fulfill their dream of being a mother. In addition, it is an increasingly common reality in today's society, as reflected in the report made by the Spanish Association of Primary Care Pediatrics, 15 ideas to understand adoption today.
