Adoption is a process by which one makes someone or something that is external, one's own. A couple struggling with infertility may benefit from artificial reproductive technologies. However, this involves a huge investment in terms of finances, health, and emotions. Adoption is an option that should be considered as a viable alternative. The couple is taken through the process only when both the partners are absolutely ready for it. Adoption finds mention in scriptures and has strong emotional and spiritual components. Adoption provides the components of relationship, family, and security to both the couple and the child being adopted.
