Adoption While Unemployed

Q&A with the Experts


ethiopia-baby-whiteQ: Has anyone successfully completed an international adoption single while unemployed? I have substantial assets and my home is completely paid for, but have been unemployed for some time. Should I risk it?

A: Unemployment with substantial assets would be treated differently in different countries and would of course depend on how substantial your assets are. The one word of caution I would have would be to ask a lot of questions to the agency before you spend any money towards the adoption. You need to know for sure that they have faced this situation or know the country well enough to say that being single and unemployed will not disqualify you or decrease your odds to the degree that you aren’t willing to risk the time and money. I wish you the best of luck on the job search and the adoption.

    Of course, advise pregnant women in less than ideal financial situations that adoption will guaranteed be a way to ensure your child has a better life, and social conditioning will convince them that choosing to parent through temporary hardships Is ultimately selfish.

    Simultaneously, of course pass a single and unemployed woman for all pre-adoption vetting requirements as long as they have “substantial assets” – aka the cash to pay the baby brokers.

    Of course, any adoption is definitely not a human market and “totally done in the best interests of a child”.
