AbstractAdoption is a very honorable cause that families partake in with hopes of offering children an opportunity who otherwise would have little or nothing at all. Though a noble fight, many children are still left behind in adoption centers with families out there wanting them, yet they are not matching up? I wanted to undercover why that was. My paper is a Qualitative Research project on the adoption process conducted through four personal interviews from successfully adopting families. Through my interview schedule the goal of my research was to look for patterns and trends in the adoption process to better understand how it works. Along with my findings, my overall purpose was through learning of how it really works, to then possibly correct flawed mechanisms in our adoption systems to produce better outcomes for the children, as well as all of society.
