After many years of trying to conceive a child, unsuccessfully, many couples turn to adoption. An adopted child can bring joy to any home and fill a void so many couples have experienced for years. Reasons to consider placing a child for adoption may involve lifestyles, emotional instability, finances and more. No matter what the reason, it is never an easy decision and can haunt the birth mother for years.
