"In the life of a child, a year or two years is huge," said Carolyn Mower Burns, executive director of BCF.
Burns said that at Berkshire Children and Families, they prepare each child's extensive life history to give to the adoptive family. Details like the child's birthplace or what he or she was like as a baby are included alongside the locations and names of foster families the child may have stayed with before adoption.
Burns said that adoption professionals are essentially in agreement about the importance of keeping children's channels to the past open. She explained that the relationships children have with birth parents, even if very fraught, almost always contain strength and love.
The cultural shift surrounding reproductive choices for women as well as the decrease in the stigma of single motherhood have resulted in a significant drop in infant adoptions, according to Burns. She noted that BCF used to do 40 infant adoptions a year, but by the late 1980s, that number was down to around three.
The kind of people who make adoptive parents can be anybody -- single or coupled, experienced or inexperienced, old or young, Burns said.
