Discuss the adoption process.

Adoption is a decision that individuals and couples come to for many different reasons. For some it is the end of a long process of failure to have a biological child of their own. Others choose adoption as a first choice in having a child. Single people may want to be a parent but not want to be part of a couple, and gay and lesbian individuals and couples may see adoption as a way to be a parent.
