Considering Adoption: Looking at motivations

Informed Adoption Advocates has a good article on common motivations (bad and good) for adoption. I found it illuminating - especially as some of both the good and the bad resonated with me. If you have or are considering adoption, especially internationally, this is a good place to start.

Do any of these resonate with you? What are your thoughts? Do you agree with her assessment of good and bad motivations? What might you add in light of your faith (if you are a Christian - considering that the bible tells us that caring for widows and orphans is pure and true religion)?

Informed Adoption Advocates is an excellent resource for prospective adoptive parents.

Updated to add the article link. (thanks, Kate, I didn't realize I'd linked only to the main page)

I don't know if I'm being really thick, but I couldn't find the article. I'd love to read it since we're currently thinking about adoption. Where exactly is it on the site? Sorry.... I'm sure I've been staring right at it!
