Do you really think that Aparents simply want "the perfect child". I think that this is a dismissive way to stereotype adoptive parents and trash infant adoption. If you look at most couples who are waiting, the racial preferences are almost completely gone, the age preferences are often up to 5 years old (hardly an infant) and the alcohol/drug preferences are often blown away. Many couples will take a child with almost any exposure. Couples will agree to almost any contact before and afterwards so that is not a barrier.
Just because I dont want to adopt a disabled abused 10 yr old from the foster care system doesnt mean I am looking for the perfect child, just because I want to be able to attach to a child I am given and not worry for years that he/she will go back to a person who lost her to foster care to begin with, also doesnt mean I only want the perfect child. I want the perfect child for Me.
